LIGA - Eden Hazard ready to storm San Siro in the champions league
During the opening day of the Champions League group stage, there are immediately some beautiful posters on the program. On Wednesday evening, for example, the record holder in the championship ball will visit the reigning champion of Italy. In other words, Inter Milan against Real Madrid.
The two teams already faced each other in the group stage last season. Real then pulled the longest end 3-2 at home and went on to win 0-2 under pressure in the Giuseppe Meazza stadium. That last game is one of the few Real Madrid matches that Eden Hazard will have fond memories of. In between all his injuries, he was finally allowed to start again. The Red Devil also gave his team the lead from the spot, played a solid match and thus had his share in the crucial victory of the Royal.
The circumstances are different on Wednesday, Hazard has been fit for several weeks now and has already made quite a few minutes with his club and national team this season. Still, a strong performance would have been very welcome again. At Real we still did not see the best Hazard at work, his performance was again quite mediocre last weekend against Celta de Vigo. In any case, our compatriot seems ready to shine. Video footage from the club shows how he was quite excited for the last training session in San Siro. Hopefully that will also give him a starting spot.
