Additionally, it brought their long-standing rivals Barcelona back into title contention with Carlo Ancelotti's team. To make matters even worse, the draw came at a cost, as star midfielder Jude Bellingham suffered a shoulder dislocation during the match, as reported by Madrid Xtra.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who has been directly involved in 16 goals in 14 appearances under Carlo Ancelotti, had a mishap in the 11th minute of the game while attempting to control the ball.

He struggled to stand and had to receive medical attention while clutching his injured shoulder.

Despite Bellingham continuing for the duration of the game, reports from Managing Madrid have stated that the midfielder could miss the La Liga club's crucial UEFA Champions League clash against Sporting Braga.

Upon hearing the news of the marquee midfielder's potential absence in the Braga match, Real Madrid fans wasted no time in expressing their concerns and sentiments about Bellingham's injury on social media.

Bellingham claims Kopa Trophy

Sports Brief also previously reported on Bellingham claiming the Kopa Trophy at the Ballon d'Or Awards gala event on Monday (October 30).

This prestigious accolade - reserved for the most outstanding footballer under the age of 21 - was presented to the Englishman at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.

Bellingham's triumph signifies his status as the best-performing young player, as he outshone Bayern Munich's Jamal Musiala and Barcelona's Alejandro Balde to win.
