Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard is set to feature against his former side, as the Belgian recently made a return from injury over the weekend.
Hazard featured for the first time in months for Real Madrid, as the Los Blancos were held to a goalless draw by Real Betis.
Hazard looked sharp in that game despite being out for a long time, and could have gotten a goal but unselfishly played the ball for Vinicius Jr.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who also left Chelsea for Real Madrid, has hailed his countryman for his comeback appearance, and admitted that he’s still very sharp and will be a massive addition in the remaining games of the season.
Courtois said, “He had the same spark as ever, he’s very sharp. It’s a shame he didn’t try to shoot, probably because he saw Vinicius Jr. in a better position, but he’s got a great shot and had the chance to get one off.
“He looks great and it’s massive to have him back for the end of the season.
“Betis are a great side who are enjoying a good season, we have to give them credit because they defend very well. It was a difficult game for us, we struggled to find the right passes or shooting opportunities in attack. We couldn’t get the goal. If Barcelona and Atlético win their games it’ll be difficult but there are still games left to come and we have to believe until the end.”
