The former Chelsea striker could miss Euro 2020 due to Levante’s injury
Real Madrid confirmed that Eden Hazard suffered a broken ankle against Levante on Saturday.
The 29-year-old striker left after 67 minutes of the game, which was his second comeback after a three-month absence because he had hairy hair on his foot.
In a statement issued by the club, it was confirmed: “Aden Hazard was diagnosed with a fracture of the right distal fibula by the medical department of Real Madrid. His recovery will continue to be evaluated.”
The distal fibula is the most common bone that breaks in the ankle and generally takes three to four months to heal, which increases the former Chelsea star’s participation in the 2020 European Cup.
Coach Zinedine Zidane had warned in the wake of the meeting that he did not expect the speculation to be brilliant, and explained to the media: “I think it is a blow in the same area where he was last injured and does not look good.”
While confirmation of the reverse is, of course, a blow to Hazard, who has participated in only 10 La Liga matches with Los Blancos since his transfer to Santiago Bernabeu from Stamford Bridge in the summer due to successive injury problems, represents a colossal blow in the Madrid title with aspirations on several fronts. .
Zidane will face Manchester City on Wednesday in the round of 16 of the Champions League with the English champions, while Barcelona will receive the Classic next Sunday in the match that saw the importance of the club after its failure. Win any of the last two games in the first division and watch them fall to second place behind their main competitors.
Mariano Díaz and Marco Asensio are expected to be marginalized when they receive City, but they hope that Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic can return to work after an illness that prevents them from appearing at the weekend.
Madrid did not win any of its last two games tying with Celta Vigo before the weekend’s setback against Levante.
