Eden Hazard played the last 13 minutes of the match against Elche on his Real Madrid return 32 days later. That lack of rhythm was noticeable, and although he wanted to play, he didn’t have that spark that characterised him in the past.
Real Madrid could only draw on their visit to the Martínez Valero, but one of the positive notes was the return of Eden Hazard, who played the final minutes of the match.
32 days since his last Real Madrid match against Alavés, the Belgian forward was back to try and help his team get the win against Elche.
Zidane decided to opt for the number 7 with the score level and 13 minutes left to play. He came on alongside Fede Valverde to try and give them another look.
Although Hazard offered himself on various occasions to try and help the team in the final third, that lack of rhythm was noticeable after returning from a new injury. That intermittence that has already made itself felt on other occasions.
A little starter on the way back from the injury room to close the year 2020, also to forget on the pitch for the Belgian. He has not found the sensations he was looking for.
In the calendar year, he has played a total of 16 matches, with the pandemic in the middle, while he has only been able to score 2 goals and get another 2 assists.
