Injured again, Eden Hazard will miss Real Madrid’s Spanish league finale on Saturday.

Hazard was not included in the team’s squad for the home match against Villarreal, which Madrid needs to win to have a chance of defending its La Liga title. It enters the final round two points behind Atletico Madrid, which visits relegation-threatened Valladolid.

However, captain Sergio Ramos will be back in the squad after recovering from an injury that has kept him out since March.

Hazard missed a big part of the season because of injuries but had been playing regularly recently.

Atletico Madrid doesn’t have any major setbacks ahead of its match at Valladolid, when it can clinch its first league title since 2014.
