Terrible news about Eden Hazard

Another relapse for the Belgian winger of Real Madrid, who continues to be injured.

In what becomes a painful tale to read, Eden Hazard suffered yet another injury setback, this time the Belgian winger feels slight pain in a previously injured area, so it's essentially a relapse into his program's current recovery.

The Real Madrid forward had been sidelined with a major muscle injury, although he was making good progress on what was considered an initial 4-6 week absence, we even saw him return to training at Valdebebas on February 21.

However, as his return to the first team drew closer and closer, a disaster occurred during the week with Hazard being unable to train for much of the week.

The problem, according to Marca, is a little pain in the injured muscle, and the change has forced Real Madrid to put the brakes on Hazard's return to action.

The second leg against Atalanta Bergamo in the Champions League round of 16, scheduled for Madrid mid-next week, is still seen as a possible date for Hazard's return, although the grim reality is that Zinedine Zidane will be used to live without the former Chelsea star.

Zidane will only select Hazard if he is definitely 100%, but if he proves it before Atalanta's visit, he will play. Otherwise, it won't. Hazard is expected to continue reducing his workload on Friday, with his time split between indoor work and drills on the training ground.

Real Madrid won against the Bergamo club in the round of 16 first leg of C1 on the smallest of scores thanks to a sublime coiled shot signed by Ferland Mendy (1-0). The return match is therefore still very undecided between the two teams.

Real Madrid faces their neighbor Atlético this weekend for a major shock in La Liga.
