These are the opportunities he must seize. Eden Hazard took advantage of an injury to Karim Benzema to regain his place with Real Madrid. Against Celtic, the Red Devil was good for scoring a goal and an assist.
After one game, there was already a panic: Will Eden Hazard be able to play this season? Wasting a penalty against Celta de Vigo did not help. And today MARCA again argued that the Red Devil won’t get much time to play.
But look, in football things can go really fast sometimes. A few hours later, Eden Hazard suddenly became the famous man of the Royal after a goal and an assist against Celtic.
In half an hour, the Belgian unexpectedly got his chance early after Karim Benzema was injured. Carlo Ancelotti kept his word, as the Italian coach heralded from preparations that he saw the perfect false nine in Hazard.
Benzema leaves the field injured.
In Scotland, this seemed at first to have little success. But after Vinicius’ opening goal, there was suddenly more room and Hazard took advantage of that.
Firstly, the Red Devils were good to help Luka Modric, who did most of the work by shooting the outside of the foot into the goal.
Fifteen minutes before the time, Hazard himself was the last stop. His first goal for Real Madrid in the Champions League. The dribbler had to put in a cross from Carvajal from close range.
Undoubtedly a welcome boost after months of skepticism. And now waiting for the medical bulletin for Karim Benzema?
