Eden Hazard will make his comeback from injury as Real Madrid face Elche on Wednesday, Zinedine Zidane has confirmed.

Hazard hasn’t played since suffering a thigh strain in Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Deportivo Alaves at the end of November.

The Belgian has only made six appearances in all competitions so far this season, and is yet to complete 90 minutes in 2020-21.

Hazard only managed 22 appearances last season and, while there have been flashes of brilliance, the 29-year-old has failed to replicate the form which earned him his €100 million (£88m/$112m) move from Chelsea in 2019.

But, with Madrid chasing down top spot in La Liga, Zidane says the Belgian will be back on the pitch – for a short while at least.

“Eden will be available tomorrow and we’d like him to just play a little bit,” Zidane said in his pre-match press conference.

“The other day (against Granada) we decided against it but we want him to play tomorrow because he’s been back with the team for a while and we want to take advantage of Eden’s ability.”
