Real Madrid have confirmed that Eden Hazard and Casemiro have tested positive for coronavirus.
The pair both returned positive tests and will now undergo a period of self-isolation.
In a statement on their website, the La Liga giants said: “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.”
Hazard completed an £83.53m move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2019 after enjoying a hugely successful spell at Stamford Bridge after joining from Lille in 2012.
The winger won two Premier League titles, two Europa League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup in his seven years at Chelsea and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the club’s history.
The 29-year-old made no secret of his desire to join Zinedine Zidane’s side towards the end of his spell in west London, and is now into his second season in the Spanish capital.
But Hazard has endured an inconsistent start to his career at the Bernabeu thanks to injury problems.
The Belgian only managed to score one goal in his debut season, and spent most of the year on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
