Eden Hazard’s injury not serious, but could still cause Real Madrid problems in the short term

A thrilling game between Belgium and France in Turin last night was ruined for Real Madrid fans when they say Eden Hazard leave the pitch in the 75th minute.

The winger wasn’t in obvious pain, but the way he suddenly departed from the match at a crucial moment told you something was up, and after the game Roberto Martinez confirmed it was a medical issue.

As it turns out, it’s not too serious. AS have information that it’s not just a knock, and not a sprain or a tear.

After so many injury issues, getting back to playing regularly is the most important thing for Hazard, and these little niggles are always going to be a problem for him as he looks to return to playing twice a week all season.

As it stands, it sounds like a week of rest should have him fit for Real Madrid’s next game. But there are no guarantees of that, and it would now not be a surprise if he misses a game or two for Los Blancos.
