Real Madrid star Eden hazard set to return for Copa del Rey clash against Real Sociedad
Real Madrid star Eden Hazard is set to return for the Copa del Rey clash on Thursday, according to a report from Daily Mail.
The report adds that the Belgian ace is ready to return for the Copa del Rey quarter-final clash against Real Sociedad, having been out of action for 10 weeks due to an ankle injury.
The ex-Chelsea star sustained an ankle injury during Madrid's Champions League group stage game against PSG.
However, Zinedine Zidane has now been handed a huge boost with the return of Hazard, given that Madrid have some crucial fixtures ahead.
Hazard’s start to life in La Liga has been underwhelming so far as he has scored only once in eight appearances.
In his absence, Zidane fielded different names on the pitch including Vinicius, Rodrygo and Isco.
Los Blancos have been clinical in their last few games and have managed to grab the top spot in La Liga for the moment. They are three points clear of the defending champions Barcelona.
