Eden Hazard ‘in line to feature against Liverpool’1 min read
Eden Hazard could reportedly make his return from injury in Real Madrid’s Champions League quarter-final first leg at home to Liverpool on Tuesday night.
The Belgium international has struggled with a number of fitness problems during his time at the Bernabeu and has been on the sidelines with his latest muscular issue since the middle of March.
Hazard was pictured in training ahead of Madrid’s La Liga clash with Eibar on Saturday, though, and he also took part in Sunday’s recovery session for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
According to Marca, the former Chelsea attacker is now expected to be in the squad against Jurgen Klopp’s team, although Zidane will not take any risks when it comes to the 30-year-old.
Hazard has been restricted to just 14 appearances in all competitions this season, but he has scored in the 2020-21 Champions League, finding the back of the net against Inter Milan in the group stages.
The Belgian has scored seven times in 18 appearances against Liverpool throughout his career, meanwhile, and has lost just four times against the reigning English champions.
