Hazard suffers another injury

Real Madrid starlet, Eden Hazard, is now facing a fight to be fit for their clash with Villarreal this weekend, after picking up a knock in training.

The 31-year-old could face yet another set-back in his injury-hit Madrid career, although the knock is reportedly not a serious one, but it has seen the Belgium international missing training before subsequently working in the gym.

Hazard should be fit enough to play by the time the weekend roles around, but it’s an added stress boss Carlo Ancelotti did not need, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The former Chelsea has endured a number of injury setbacks since moving to Spain in 2019

Madrid has struggled with injuries of late as they were without star striker, Karim Benzema, for Sunday’s win over Granada, while Ferland Mendy also missed out.

Meanwhile, Casemiro and Lucas Vazquez had to withdraw from the squad in the 11th hour due to a stomach issue.

Ahead of a tricky away clash with Villarreal this weekend, Los Blancos will get Casemiro and Vazquez back, while nothing is certain over Benzema and Mendy.

Both are in group training, but Real Madrid don’t want to take any risks ahead of next week’s key Champions League clash with PSG.

Hazard is just the latest blow for Madrid, but more so for himself, as it is just the latest unfortunate injury setbacks which has marred the Belgian's career at the Bernabeu since sealing his move from Chelsea in 2019.

Hazard's spell at Madrid since joining for around £150million has been nothing short of a disaster, with over 15 injuries hampering the ex-Chelsea star's progress at the Bernabeu.
