Real Madrid superstar Eden Hazard’s signing from Chelsea in 2019 was received with utmost hope and excitement following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018. The Belgium international was touted as the ideal replacement for the departing club legend but has failed to live up to the hype ever since, largely due to injury concerns. A startling stat suggests his struggle with injuries since moving to the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid released an official statement on the Hazard injury crisis ahead of the crunch Champions League clash.

Since moving to the Bernabeu in 2019, Hazard has sustained nine injuries as yet.
