La Liga Champions, Real Madrid have confirmed that Eden Hazard and Casemiro have tested Positive for COVID 19.
The Belgian winger and Brazilian midfielder will miss Sunday’s match against Valencia as they undergo a period of self-isolation.
Hazard, who has featured in just three games in 2020-21 after missing the first weeks of the campaign with an injury, will face another spell on the sidelines after receiving a positive coronavirus test result.
According to Real Madrid, “we announces that our players Casemiro and Hazard have given positive results in the COVID-19 tests carried out yesterday Friday morning.
“All the other players and the coaching staff of the first team, as well as all the club employees who work directly with them, gave negative results in that same test carried out yesterday. Likewise, it is confirmed again that all, with the exception of Casemiro and Hazard, have given negative results in the antigen tests carried out this morning.”
Earlier this week, Los Blancos defender Eder Militao was found to have tested positive for Covid-19 and missed the Champions League win against Inter on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, last week three members of the club’s Castilla side also returned positive coronavirus tests, with one further test returning an inconclusive result.
