Eden Hazard to return for Real Madrid this weekend

Eden Hazard will return to Real Madrid first-team action after nearly three months out against Celta Vigo this weekend.

The attacking star will play for Zinedine Zidane’s side for the first time in 82 days after suffering an injury against Paris Saint-Germain on 26 November in the Champions League group stage encounter.

The Belgian international arrived in the Spanish capital this summer in a big money move but, after suffering multiple injury problems, he has yet to hit form for his new side.

Hazard had become a regular starter for Los Blancos in an attacking front three which also includes the in-form Karim Benzema along with one of Rodrygo Goes, Gareth Bale or Vinicius Junior.

However, he suffered a fresh injury setback late in 2019 and has now sat out action for a number of weeks, although he now looks set for a return to first-team action.

Hazard has missed the last 16 Madrid games including the club’s triumph in the Spanish Supercopa, as outlined by El Mundo Deportivo.
