Hazard: injury to the psoas

After playing against Elche he was aiming for Atalanta, but Madrid confirmed that he suffers a new muscle injury. He falls out of the call, to which Marcelo returns.


Real Madrid will not be able to count on Eden Hazard against Atalanta. The Belgian was the great absence of the white team in the last training session before receiving the Italians on Tuesday in the second leg of the round of 16 duel and after Bergamo's 0-1. The white star had returned against Elche, last weekend, and it was expected that he would continue to increase his prominence in the Champions League. It will not be like that. Zinedine Zidane, the team's coach, confirmed that he is injured again, although he did not give further details. "He will not be able to be with us in this game, but as I am optimistic, I hope it will be a little thing" .

Later, Real Madrid announced Hazard's injury through a statement: "After the tests performed today on our player Eden Hazard by Real Madrid's Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas. Pending evolution . "

Hazard's absence disrupts Zizou's plans again. The Frenchman asked for "patience" after the Belgian's return against Elche but the entity had pinned many of its hopes on having one of its best players in a match, this round against Atalanta, key in the team's season. The Marseille coach will have to decide whether to recover Asensio, give continuity to Vinicius or bet from the beginning on Rodrygo, who revolutionized the white attack at 2-1 against the people of Elche. Benzema is the only one immovable.

The infirmary had been emptied with the return of Hazard and Ramos after several weeks of high occupancy levels. Only three troops remained. Carvajal, who still has a few weeks to go back, Mariano and Odriozola. Hazard rejoins that group of absences.
