Fit for Liverpool
It is fair to say that things have not gone to plan for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid.
The Belgian superstar lit up the Premier League for 8 years at Chelsea and was widely expected to do the same in La Liga, but he has suffered numerous injuries since arriving in Spain and is yet to really get going for Los Blancos.
Real Madrid have posted pictures of their training session yesterday and Eden Hazard can be seen involved, in what can only be seen as a positive sign as they prepare to face Liverpool in the Champions League Quarter Final first leg this week.

Marca have also reported on the news that both Hazard and Toni Kroos are back training with the squad and may be set to face Liverpool.
Hazard was diagnosed with a psoas injury in mid March, and the club considered surgery as a way of fixing his problems. However it was decided surgery wasn’t required and Hazard spent the International break being seen to by the Belgian national team physios and it seems to have had a positive impact.
Zinedine Zidane is hopeful of including him in his squad and his German midfield maestro, who celebrated his 200th win with Real Madrid on Saturday.

Zidane would no doubt feel better if both are indeed available for the Liverpool games. Sergio Ramos will be absent and Real will need to be at their best if they are to advance against a Liverpool side who showed what their capable of in their victory over Arsenal at the weekend.
