Hazard Injured Again, Marcelo Protests As Real Madrid Beat Eibar

Real Madrid stayed two points behind Barcelona after a 3-1 win over Eibar on Sunday in a game that saw Marcelo take a knee and Eden Hazard suffer another injury.

 

In their first game in three months following the coronavirus suspension, Toni Kroos, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo all scored in the opening 45 minutes.

Brazilian defender Marcelo marked his 37th-minute goal by taking a knee and raising a fist in protest against racism and sympathy with the Black Lives Matter movement.

 

Hazard, playing for the first time since February after undergoing ankle surgery in March, was replaced in the second half with what appeared to be a recurrence of the same injury.
