Hazard 3-1 to be banned for four or more games

CHELSEA forward Eden Hazard is 3-1 at Paddy Power to receive a ban of four or more matches after he was red carded for violent conduct in Wednesday night's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg when he appeared to kick a ball boy when trying to retrieve the ball.

A dismissal for violent conduct is usually given a three-match suspension and Paddy Power go 1-3 that he misses exactly that amount of games.

Hazard was quick to apologise after the match but is 15-2 with the firm to only miss two or less games.

Barcelona v Malaga

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Malaga have won one of their last 12 league matches
Expert verdict
Barcelona conceded too many goals in the build-up to the La Liga season but were solid 1-0 winners at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday and can keep another clean sheet against Malaga. Barca went back to basics in Bilbao and might not be any more expansive against a Malaga side who drew 0-0 at home to Seville in their opening match.
