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.

Match in Focus

Peterborough v Swindon

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Peterborough were top scorers at home in League One last season
Expert verdict
Peterborough have won three of their first five outings in League One, including a 5-1 victory over Millwall that made the division sit up and listen. They may not currently boast the best of records against Swindon, losing four of their last five meetings with the Robins, but Posh should put that right on Saturday against visitors who have failed to convince in the new campaign. Swindon have yet to win on the road and struggled towards the end of last season, winning just two of their final 12 games.
