Sevilla vs Real Madrid: Hazard injury update

Real Madrid have confirmed that Eden Hazard has suffered yet another injury problem.

The Belgian forward has been plagued by issues since swapping Chelsea for the Santiago Bernabeu, suffering hamstring, ankle and leg injuries in his first season and missing matches this term through another hamstring complaint, severe bruising and a positive coronavirus test.
