[Sports] Hazard Suffers Injury Blow to Delay Real Madrid Debut

Eden Hazard has picked up an untimely hamstring injury, with the Belgian set to see his competitive debut for Real Madrid delayed.

The Blancos are set to open their 2019-20 La Liga campaign away at Celta Vigo on Saturday.

Eden Hazard, fresh from a €100 million (£88m/$112m) transfer to Santiago Bernabeu from Chelsea, would have been hoping to figure prominently in that fixture.

He is, however, set to be restricted to a spectator role after suffering an unfortunate knock.

Real have confirmed that the 28-year-old is facing up to a spell on the sidelines.

A statement on the club’s official website read:

“After the tests carried out after training today by the Real Madrid Medical Services, our player Eden Hazard has been diagnosed with a lesion in the anterior rectus of the left thigh.”


Eden Hazard could miss close to 3-4 weeks of the season, reportedly.
