Hazard returns after 66 days

30 Jan 2020

Real Madrid began their preparations for Saturday’s derby with some bonus news, the return of Eden Hazard to the group’s training session.

This is the first time that he has been able to do so after 66 days out, following the challenge from compatriot Meunier in the Champions League group stage match against PSG, during which the winger has missed 14 games.

Understandably, Hazard is not being called up for game against Atlético, but he is likely to see some pitchtime over the following week. This could come in the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey, or in the league match against Osasuna on Sunday 9 February at El Sadar.

The idea is to ensure he is match sharp by the time the first leg against Man City in the Champions League Last 16 rolls around on 26 February.
