Mariano gave the ball to Hazard and it was the Belgian who executed the maximum penalty. He did not miss the ‘7’ from the point of eleven meters. Powerful launch that could not reach Handanovic despite hitting the side to which the ball was going. This goal was the first of the two that Real Madrid signed against Inter, but it means a lot to Eden.
