Real Madrid have received a huge injury boost ahead of their Champions League Last-16 tie with Manchester City.
The Catalan giants are hoping to see Eden Hazard back to the action on Thursday, following the midfielder’s long-term absence.
Hazard has been out of the game after suffering a hairline fracture in his foot during the club’s 2 – 2 draw with PSG in November.
As the Belgian international has completed his third full training session with the squad on Monday, Spanish publication AS expect the 29-year-old to feature for Thursday’s Copa del Rey quarter-final against Real Sociedad.
Hazard joined Zinedine Zidan’s side from Chelsea in the summer of 2019 with a hamstring injury. He has made just 13 appearances before returning to the sidelines. However, the Citizens are aware of the player’s damage on them since his playing time in England. Pep Guardiola’s side will be hoping their two stars, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane, to be fit for the upcoming tie.
City will face the La Liga giants for the Champions League first tie at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on February 26.
