Eden Hazard will not be returning in time for the Champions League tie against Liverpool.
Hazard no viajará a Liverpool.
Se une a las bajas de Ramos, Carvajal, Lucas Vázquez y Varane.

The Belgian star who has missed majority of the campaign with slight niggles is due to be dropped from another important tie. Real Madrid did get a positive outcome in the first leg meeting against Liverpool.
Goals from Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio saw the Galacticos take a 3-1 lead in the Champions League quarter-final. In Hazard’s absence, Vinicius seems to be flourishing under Zinedine Zidane. The last time Hazard featured for Real was as a substitute against Elche in March.
He returned after a two-month injury layoff only to be sidelined once again. His muscles injuries continue to disrupt his career in Spain. Till date, fans have not seen enough of the €120m signing and are ready to write him off completely.
Of course, given his talents, his return would be a huge boost for the remainder of the campaign. Los Blancos are in a strong position to retain their title and are also fighting in Europe. They have found a decent bit of form, beating Barcelona 2-1 in the El Clasico as well.
