Real Madrid have already confirmed that the Belgian attacker broke his ankle in Saturday’s match against Levante. Because of that injury, Eden Hazard will have to miss the whole season.
The young forward was limped out of the pitch after playing 67 minutes of the match. Noteworthy that it was just Hazard’s second game since he has returned from his previous injury. He was absent for three months because of a foot injury.
Lately, the club released a statement, according to which they confirmed that Eden Hazard’s recovery would keep being assessed. He has broken the distal fibula in his ankle, and the recovery process usually takes about three or four months. Accordingly, it is doubtful if Hazard will have a chance to take part in Euro 2020 any more.
Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane, said that it was not to the same area where Hazard had suffered his previous injury. And it did not look good.
Eden Hazard has only made ten appearances in La Liga for Real Madrid since he joined the club in summer. The reason for his consecutive absences always was different types of injuries.
Real Madrid are having a bigger fish to fry
Now Real Madrid is preparing for Wednesday’s CL clash against Manchester City. Mariano Diaz and Marco Asensio will probably be sidelined in that match. So they are now dependent mostly on Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic’s return after their illnesses, because of which they both missed the last weekend’s match.
It should also be noted that Zidane’s troops could not manage to win any of their two latest games. Accordingly, fans are not satisfied with their current form after watching several weeks of Real Madrid’s excellent matches. As a result, they are no longer unrivaled favorites in their upcoming clash against Manchester City.
Citizens, on the other hand, seem to be ready to do their best to prove everyone that they can easily defeat the average level teams like Real Madrid lately seems to be.
