Eden Hazard has started his first match after returning from his latest injury against Osasuna. The Belgian has already made two substitute appearances in Real’s last two matches against Real Betis and Chelsea.
Eden Hazard looks to be at his fluent best tonight and has produced some exhilarating football so far. The Belgian’s best efforts came in the first half when he flicked a back-heel pass on the right hand side.

The incident occurred in the 35th minute when ball looked to have gone out of play on the right flank but Hazard kept the ball in and made a first time back-heel pass through for Asensio. However, the move ultimately petered out for Real Madrid and the score remains at 0-0 in the first half.
The La Liga commentator after seeing the effort remarked, “Eden Hazard is the best player on the pitch. This is the best we’ve seen him physically.”
