Real Madrid just announced on their official website that Casemiro and Eden Hazard have tested positive for Covid-19.
Real Madrid C. F. would like to inform that our players Casemiro and Eden Hazard have tested positive in the COVID-19 tests carried out yesterday, Friday morning.
All the other players and the technical staff from the first team, as well as all the employees of the club who work directly with them, tested negative in that same test. The club would like to confirm once again that everyone, with the exception of Casemiro and Hazard, tested negative in the antigen tests carried out that same morning.
Casemiro and Hazard join Militao, who tested positive a week ago. Odriozola, Carvajal and Nacho are also injured.
Real Madrid are facing Valencia this Sunday and will not be able to rely on those three players, meaning that they will have a very thin squad for what’s a must-win for them against a manageable Valencia team who have been struggling this season.
