The Real Madrid already smile: Eden Hazard it’s back. Real Madrid looks forward to the hours before the game against Celta Vigo in League, as it is planned to be the moment when the Belgian striker plays his first minutes since he was injured at the end of November 2019.
The former of Chelsea it has been in the dry dock for almost three months and Zinedine Zidane He does not see the moment to recover his great star. In fact, the French coach yearns for the recovery of the Belgian with a view to the final phase of the Champions League that will begin next week at Concha Espina.
Objective: Manchester City
Precisely that is Hazard’s objective: to arrive in optimal conditions to the appointment of next February 26 before the Manchester City. The whites will play a round of last 16 of high flights and intend to try to set the tie ahead before having to visit Etihad Stadium in mid-March.
The striker lacks the pace of competition and Zidane will carry out a strategic and measured plan so that he can enter the team’s competition dynamics. 30-60-90 will be the minutes that the coach will give, progressively, to the Belgian in the next matches. A formula whose premise is to get Hazard to face those of Pep Guardiola.
Hazard is in a sweet moment a few hours after Real Madrid closes the 24th round of La Liga against Celta de Vigo in Santiago Bernabéu. The Belgian completed the last pre-match training on Sunday normally and Zidane has included him in the call, above names like Rodrygo Goes.
It was speculated that the striker could have had his first minutes on the previous day of the League against Osasuna. However, Zidane didn’t want to take risks with his big star. The Frenchman wanted to measure the steps in the recovery of ‘7’ to the millimeter, since a relapse could cause the rest of the season to be lost. Something that explains why the terms of his return were extended. And it is that initially it was anticipated that he could have been in the last league derby before the Atlético de Madrid.
Vigorous fire test
With the incursion of Hazard in the dynamics of the team the competition in the staff is tightened. If in optimal shape, the left band is your property. Something that displaces players like Vinicius or Isco from many lineups. A puzzle that Zidane will have to solve in the coming weeks.
We will still have to see what conditions the striker is in, since he has been in the dry dock for three months. The match against Celta will be key to measure sensations and see their degree of confidence on the pitch, the pace that can endure in a game of maximum demand, the physical state in which they are, etc.
The first leg of the round of 16 against Manchester City will require that any player who has minutes is at maximum capacity, so Hazard will have to start watching this Sunday if he is strong enough to fight for ownership in two weeks.
