Eden Hazard was brought on as a substitute against Valladolid. This is Hazard’s first time playing in La Liga for Real after 7 months of waiting.
Eden Hazard was brought on by coach Carlo Ancelotti from the bench in the match against Valladolid. The Belgian came on to replace hat-trick hero Karim Benzema.
This is Eden Hazard’s first appearance in La Liga since starting against Mallorca on September 11, 2022.
Hazard was launched into the field in the 65th minute when the match was arranged. At this time, Real beat Valladolid with a score of 4-0. Hazard also left a mark with an assist for Lucas Vazquez to score the goal that made the match 6-0.
In the minutes on the pitch, Hazard performed not too bad. The Belgian player has up to 4 passes to create opportunities for teammates to finish. Hazard also got a shot but couldn’t get the ball on target.
Of course, the performance against Valladolid did not help Hazard much in the competition for the starting position. No matter how much they improve, competing for the opportunity to play with Vinicius Junior is unthinkable for Hazard.
Real Madrid are very interested in liquidating Hazard in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, the high salary makes the Belgian player not receive much attention. Hazard also expressed his desire to stay at Real until the end of his contract.
Eden Hazard contributed only 7 goals in 4 seasons with Real Madrid. He could be listed as one of Los Blancos’ failed signings with a hefty transfer fee.
