“After the tests carried out today on our player Eden Hazard by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas. Pending evolution,” the statement reads.
On Hazard, Zinedine Zidane told reporters at his pre-match press conference:
“He won’t be fit.
They’re things that I can’t explain. I want to be positive and hope that it’s not too much of a problem.
“Something’s up, because he was never injured in his entire career (before joining Real) or there were very few injuries. It’s something new. I can’t really give any more of an explanation. We want to help him and hope he’s back as soon as possible.
“We’re going to try and figure out why it’s happening (the club’s injuries), but right now we can’t explain it. We’ve spoken about things like the lack of pre-season, amount of games and the mental aspect.”
