'Prime' Eden Hazard set up Luka Modric for a trivela goal and we've broken the replay button

'Prime' Eden Hazard set up Luka Modric for a trivela goal and we've broken the replay button

On. Repeat.

Eden Hazard rolled back the years to assist Luka Modric for Real Madrid's second goal in their 3-0 win over Celtic.

The Belgium international started this evening's Champions League clash at Celtic Park on the bench, but replaced an injured Karim Benzema in the first half.

It took the holders until the 56th minute to break the deadlock, with Vinicius Jr. turning home a Federico Valverde cross.

That lifted a weight from Los Blancos' shoulders and they managed to double their lead on the hour mark.

Hazard received the ball just inside the Celtic heart and drove at the defence with conviction.

The 31-year-old skipped away from a challenge before laying the ball off to Modric.

Modric had plenty of work to do and attempted to cut onto his left foot, but it ricocheted between a number of players. A deflection would've seen the move break down for most, but not Modric.

He instead unleashed an outside the boot pass which was too powerful for Joe Hart to handle.

Antonio Rudiger was keen to get the assister and goalscorer together, giving them both a huge hug in the celebrations.

Hazard then got on the scoresheet himself with 13 minutes left to play, his first European goal for Real since November 2020.

Fans have reacted to the goal and they're in awe at both men's performances.

One person commented: "So refreshing to see Hazard play like this. He set up Modric so well."

Another said: "Modric is the king of the trivela nobody comes close."

A third tweeted: "This goal was art."

While someone said: "Could Hazard be back?"


The holders have gone straight to the top of Group F with the victory and they'll be looking to win a 15th European title this season.

Celtic didn't make it easy in the first half however and came close to opening the scoring though Callum McGregor.

His effort left Thibaut Courtois rooted to the spot, but struck the wrong side of the post.

Elsewhere in Group F, Shakhtar Donetsk demolished RB Leipzig 4-1.
