Great news for Real Madrid at the last minute. Both Eden Hazard and Éder Militao have tested negative in the latest COVID-19 test and could face Villarreal and Inter Milan.

Real Madrid breathe a sigh of relief. The side led by Zinedine Zidane have recovered two important players ahead of the Villarreal match: Eden Hazard and Éder Militao after they tested negative for COVID-19.

Bit by bit, the Real Madrid injury room is emptying of players positive for COVID-19. If on Wednesday it was Casemiro, on this occasion it was Hazard and Militao.


Media such as ‘COPE’ and ‘SER’ informed that the two players tested negative in the PCR tests on Thursday and will therefore immediately join the rest of the group.

They are two key players for Zidane ahead of the next matches. On Saturday, Real Madrid face Villarreal while next week they will do so in the Champions League against Inter Milan.

Hazard hopes to have continuity in his second year at Real Madrid. Meanwhile, the injury to Sergio Ramos in the Spain v Germany match makes the presence of Militao even more crucial.
