Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane recently spoke out over the possibility of Eden Hazard being fit for when the Spanish giant’s Champions League campaign resumes.
Real held by Leganes
The 2019/20 La Liga season drew to a close on Sunday the 19th of July.
Real Madrid had already wrapped up their 34th Spanish league title earlier in the week with a 2-1 victory over Villarreal.
Nevertheless, Los Blancos will still have no doubt been keen to cap off their domestic campaign in style.
But despite taking the lead in the tie twice through Sergio Ramos and Marco Asensio, the capital giants were held to a 2-2 draw with Leganes.
Despite failing to pick up all three points on Sunday, though, Real’s 2019/20 league campaign had been sensational.

Zidane on Hazard
Real Madrid’s attention will now, obviously, turn to the European stage.
Zinedine Zidane has enjoyed a sensational record as a manager in the Champions League, winning Europe’s most coveted club prize in every season he has managed Real.
However, Madrid are in real danger of being knocked out of the competition in the last 16 stage this term.
The La Liga champions head into their last 16 2nd leg with Manchester City in August with a 2-1 deficit to overcome at the Etihad.
As a result, Madrid will no doubt be keen to have their top talents fit, including Eden Hazard.
The Belgian, who has had his fair share of injury woes this campaign, was left out of Real’s squad to face Leganes this past weekend.
But when speaking about Hazard after the draw, Zidane stated he is hopeful the former Chelsea man will be back fully fit to play in the CL:
“We’re all going to do our best, especially those who take care of the players’ physical wellbeing, to make sure he doesn’t feel any discomfort. He’s been feeling a bit after playing and I hope he can get back fully fit after the rest to play in the Champions League”.
