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.

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats

Expert verdict
Hoffenheim are one of two Bundesliga teams to remain unbeaten in the league this season but may succumb at fifth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt, who are level on points with them. Hoffenheim haven't kept a clean sheet in their last three away games and Eintracht, buoyed by a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in their last home match, could take advantage of any errors.
