Real Madrid have published a medical report about Eden Hazard, who had to leave the match against Alaves this past Saturday.

Following tests carried out today on our player, Eden Hazard, by Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with an injury in the rectus femoris muscle of his right leg. His recovery will continue to be assessed.

Hazard will miss around 20 days with this injury, meaning that he will be out of the upcoming matches against Shakhtar, Sevilla, Gladbach and Atletico de Madrid, all of them crucial.

While he’s never been known to be an injury-prone player, Hazard just hasn’t stayed healthy and available ever since he signed for Real Madrid in the summer of 2019. There’s nothing Real Madrid can do about this fact other than being patient and waiting for Hazard to recover.

Vinicius will likely replace him in the starting lineup these games.
