MADRID (AP) - Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham will be ready to play at Valencia after recovering from an ankle injury that has sidelined him for three games, coach Carlo Ancelotti said Friday.

"(Bellingham) has not trained much with his teammates, but everything he has done individually he has done well," Ancelotti said. "He is ready to go and will play tomorrow."

Madrid visits Valencia on Saturday seeking to protect its six-point lead over Girona in the Spanish league.

Bellingham leads the league with 16 goals after the 20-year-old England midfielder joined Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
