Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard made his first appearance of the season coming off the bench during Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League Group Stage. Madrid found a way to rescue a point on the last five minutes of the game after trailing 2-0. Hazard talked to the press after the game and said that the late draw tastes like a win.

“This draw feels like three points, we played with great character and even had the chance to score another goal, but I missed the chance. We are leaving Germany with a draw but it does taste like a victory,” said Hazard.

The attacker also explained what went through his mind during his first minutes on the pitch this season.

“After two or three months away from the field, I’m very happy. I just want to keep playing football now because that’s why I’m here,” concluded Hazard..

The Belgian star will be hoping to stay healthy all season long so that he can bounce back from the disappointing debut season he completed for Madrid last year.
