Eden Hazard Produces First-Half Masterclass With Goal And Assist For Real Madrid
Eden Hazard has produced a brilliant 45 minutes for Real Madrid against Alaves - providing a backheel assist in addition to scoring.
The Belgian superstar has been unlucky with injury this season, making just six appearances in La Liga.
But he was back in the 'Los Blancos' starting line-up on Saturday and set up Karim Benzema with a delightful flick.
Hazard knocked the ball on to Benzema who doubled Madrid's lead after Casemiro's opener in the 15th minute.
Not wanting to miss out on the action, Hazard made it 3-0 with his first goal since October with a dinked finish.
The run. The touch. The finish.

If Hazard recreates any sort of form he had for Chelsea then Real will win the UCL. Man City might be the only defence itw rn capable of maybe dealing with a full flight Eden Hazard AHHHHH I'M SO HAPPY.- Bas (@CFC_Bas) January 23, 2021
Victory for Zinedine Zidane's side would see them four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who have two games in hand.
However, they will extend their lead over third place Sevilla by four points.
