Hazard will be back against Celta Vigo -report

The attacker will return from his injury next Sunday.

UEFA Champions League”Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain”

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard will be back with the team next Sunday —according to MARCA— in what will be his first minutes after recovering from the foot injury he picked up last September against PSG. Hazard has been training with the squad for the last three weeks and coach Zinedine Zidane has been cautious with his return to the pitch.

The Belgian winger will likely come off the bench for the last third of the game against Celta Vigo so that he can improve his form and confidence ahead of what will be a tough clash against Manchester City in the Champions League’s Round of 16, when he should be a factor and a key player for Zidane and the coaching staff.

Hazard, who signed for Real Madrid last summer, has had a tough debut season in the Spanish capital. He struggled with his form early in the season and right when he was improving his performances, he picked up that small fracture on his foot, forcing him to miss the past three months.
