Eden Hazard and groundhog day. After the Belgian winger recovered from his injury and participated for a few minutes in the last game against Elche, his physique has once again suffered and will be low for the fundamental match against Atalanta, this Tuesday, in which they play their future in the Champions League.
The alarms went off in training Monday morning when the ‘7’ did not appear with the rest of his companions. Shortly after, at the press conference prior to the match against the Italians, Benzema dropped that Hazard was injured and Zidane signed under the words of his compatriot.
Few minutes ago the Real Madrid confirmed through a medical statement the injury suffered by the Belgian. “After the tests carried out today on our player Eden Hazard by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas. Evolution pending“, they explained.
“He will not be able to be with us in this game, but as I am optimistic, I hope it will be a little thing,” explained Zidane. For his part, Benzema he regretted that his partner “has not had any luck since he arrived”. “It makes me very sad for him and Eden is sad because he wants to show that he is one of the best.”
With this, Hazard already adds eleven injuries in the year and a half he has been in Madrid, having lost a total of 50 games (It will be one more, at least, for this injury), for the barely 36 that he has played. It is striking that in his nine seasons at Chelsea he only missed 20 games. The Belgian still fails to start.
