Eden Hazard's Reaction At Full-Time After Being Knocked Out Of The Champions League Has Got People Talking

Eden Hazard's Reaction At Full-Time After Being Knocked Out Of The Champions League Has Got People Talking

Eden Hazard was in great spirits at the full-time whistle after Real Madrid failed to reach the Champions League final.

The Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his €100 million move to Los Blancos in 2019.

Despite playing just 755 minutes across all competitions this season, the injury-plagued Hazard was given a chance to shine in the semi-final second leg by manager Zinedine Zidane.

But he ultimately failed to make any sort of impression on the game and was brought off in the final stages after a mediocre performance.

After the final whistle, cameras followed Hazard onto the Stamford Bridge pitch and well, he didn't exactly look devastated about the result.

He was spotted hugging some of his former teammates, including Kurt Zouma - and shared a touching moment with Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta as they both left the field.

As you can imagine, these pictures have brought plenty of reaction on social media.

Away from Hazard's full-time antics and Chelsea will play Manchester City in an all-English Champions League final on May 29 after recording a 3-1 aggregate win over Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel's side, who held an away-goal advantage having drawn the first leg in Madrid, dominated for large periods on Wednesday night.

Los Blancos, meanwhile, struggled to make any sort of impression as the likes of Hazard and Vinicius Junior made very little impact on the semi-final second leg clash.

Even the return of Sergio Ramos, who started his first Real Madrid game in seven weeks, couldn't rally the troops as a goal from Timo Werner opened the scoring for The Blues.

Mason Mount, who has been outstanding all season, then put the nail in Madrid's coffin with five minutes remaining when he made it 2-0 on the night with a simple tap in.
