Hazard, sidelined at the last minute: he just became a father
If Madrid was already travelling to Mallorca with very important casualties, 'Zizou' has now yet another issue he didn't expect: Hazard will now have to be absent for the visit to Mallorca's Son Moix.
The Belgian, who was expecting a child with his wife, will not be able to be with his teammates because he has just become a father for the fourth time, which has forced the technician to make some changes.
In his place, Mariano enters in a call-up for the first time this season, and the return of Marcelo, Mendy and Brahim Díaz could also give Madrid a boost, as they had all been sidelined with injuries.
Meanwhile, Carvajal stays in Madrid after a technical decision and joins Hazard, Bale, Modric, Kroos, Nacho, Lucas and Asensio, all sidelined through injury or in the case of Hazard, personal reasons.
The pressure is on for Real Madrid, who need to provide a win if they want to remain at the top of the LaLiga table, and with the Champions League looming, Zidane will need to make sure he's got as many of his stars back as possible.
