Eden Hazard has been ruled out of Real Madrid’s crucial games against Manchester City in the UCL and Barcelona following his injury against Levante.
Real Madrid released the Belgium star’s medical report which suggests that Hazard will be out for eight weeks and more.
“Following the tests carried out today on our player, Eden Hazard, by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a fracture to his right distal fibula.”
the Spanish giants said on their official website.
Hazard, who was a marquee summer signing for the Zinedine Zidane led side has been plagued with a torrid season full of injury lay offs.
The Ex Chelsea player has now missed more footballing action for Real Madrid in six months, than he managed in his seven years stay at the London Bridge.
The Los Blancos’ number seven limped off in the 67th minute for Vinicius Jnr. in their 1-0 away loss to Levante, having fractured his ankle just 140 minutes after returning to active football action from the injury he sustained against PSG on the 26th of November 2019.
Hazard failed to feature for Real in their barren draw at Camp Nou in December due to the injury that lasted ten weeks, and will now be missing the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu in seven days time.
He will also be missing Madrid’s crucial games against Manchester City and Laliga deciders while recovering.
It will benefit the Belgian Captain to look past the current football season and prepare himself well enough to feature for Red devils in the up-coming Euros and be a better star for Real Madrid next season.
