An absolute screamer from Eden Hazard! He buries it from at least 25 yards out with his left foot. It’s his first goal in just under 400 days for Real Madrid, on his first start this season.
Benzema gets his second goal of the week with a volley right before the break, which gives Huesca a mountain to climb in the second half. The away side started very well, before a wonderstrike from Eden Hazard put Madrid in front on 40 minutes.
Madrid playing in third gear here. Huesca playing very deep, and quite possibly already thinking about their next match at 3-0 down. Madrid working on that high press now, Huesca doing their best to play it out from the back and move up the pitch. Really good play that results in a cross. Courtois jumps out and catches it.
Michel will be delighted with his sides opening half hour in Madrid. Zidane’s side have struggled so far in this one. Huesca may come to regret their missed chances.
Starting in midfield for Huesca today is Kelechi Nwakali – won Golden Ball with Nigeria at U-17 World Cup in 2015. Moved to Arsenal, didnt work out, joined Huesca w/o featuring for Gunners first team. Still just 22.
392 days later, Hazard scores. Granada in October 2019 was his last goal for Los Blancos.
For the first time in 392 days, Eden Hazard has scored a goal for Real Madrid…
What a goal it was.. Hazard is back!
