Laliga giants Real Madrid have received a blow with the news that the duo Eden Hazard and Casemiro have tested positive for coronavirus.
In a statement, Madrid noted on Saturday: “Real Madrid C.F. informs that our players, Casemiro and Eden Hazard, have tested positive in the COVID-19 tests undertaken yesterday, Friday, in the morning.
“All of the other first-team players and coaching staff, as well as the club employees who work directly with the squad tested negative in yesterday's tests. Meanwhile, all of them, apart from Casemiro and Hazard, once again tested negative in the antigen tests taken this morning.”
The move means that the duo will be out of Madrid’s team that is set to take Valencia on Sunday night.
