Real Madrid have published a medical report on Eden Hazard, who suffered a thigh injury in training this Wednesday and will be out up to six weeks.

This is basically the same injury Hazard suffered last November but this time on his left leg, and not the right one.

It’s devastating news both for Hazard and for Real Madrid, given that the attacker was starting to play like his former self right before this injury. Hazard will miss the upcoming clash against Atalanta in the Champions League’s Round of 16.

Without him, Vinicius Jr. and Marco Asensio will almost certainly start alongside Benzema in Real Madrid’s offensive line, given that Vazquez and Rodrygo are also out at the moment.
