Eden Hazard could face yet another difficulty in his recovery from a muscle problem after missing Real Madrid training on Monday morning, as a report indicates.
The former Chelsea playmaker has been plagued with injuries since trading Stamford Bridge for the Bernabeu in 2019, and he has missed the club’s last four La Liga games with his most recent muscle problem.
Zinedine Zidane recently guaranteed Hazard was ‘ready’ to return on time for a Champions League meeting with Chelsea, despite not being considered fit enough for Sunday’s goalless stalemate with Getafe.
As stated by Marca, Eden Hazard was not a place to be seen in Los Blancos’ training on Monday morning, despite being put to the test a week ago, and he is currently classified as an uncertainty important for his team’s midweek battle with Cadiz.
On a safer note, the report adds that Raphael Varane participated after returning a negative Covid test, so he should be accessible for Zidane on Wednesday evening.
Eden Hazard has only appeared from the first whistle on six occasions in the 2020-21 La Liga season, scoring two goals in wins over Huesca and Alaves.
