Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard won’t travel to Liverpool after failing to recover from a muscular injury, according to Spanish radio journalist Miguel Angel Diaz:
Hazard no viajará a Liverpool.
Se une a las bajas de Ramos, Carvajal, Lucas Vázquez y Varane.

The La Liga champions were hopeful that the Belgian international would be fit for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
However, it appears Hazard’s fitness struggles are set to continue for a while longer. The 30-year-old has made just 36 appearances in his two seasons at the Bernabeu, following his £100m switch from Chelsea.
During his seven years in England, the winger made a habit of scoring big goals against Liverpool, having scored six and provided two assists in 16 appearances.
It appears that as well as manager Jurgen Klopp not having to worry about the threat posed by Hazard, Real will have plenty of other players missing. The likes of captain Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Lucas Varquez and Dani Carvajal are also unavailable for selection.
