Eden Hazard suffers thigh injury in training

Baku, August 17, AZERTAC

Eden Hazard will miss Real Madrid's 2019/20 LaLiga Santander opener against Celta Vigo after suffering an injury to his left thigh, and is set to be out for a few weeks, according to MARCA.

A statement on the official Real Madrid website read: "Following tests carried out after training today, our player Eden Hazard has been diagnosed the Real Madrid Medical Team with a lesion in the recto anterior muscle of the left thigh. Pending evaluation."

The injury is a setback as Hazard was Real Madrid's marquee signing this summer, and the only new player who has secured his place in the starting XI.

Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Vinicius, Luka Jovic and Lucas Vazquez, who weren't considered starters, are now vying to replace the Belgian.
