It seems to be the symbol of the elimination of Real Madrid yesterday in the semifinals of the Spanish Supercup against Bilbao (1-2). “Another performance to forget” for Brand, “a shipwreck” for As… Eden Hazard is starting to worry seriously, and it is not good for him or for his club.

Once again holder in the eleven of Zinédine Zidane, the Belgian international has not lived up to his status. Appeared shy, borrowed and visibly without a solution, the number 7 of Real Madrid asks questions, more about his current real level than his condition, because he is no longer physically injured.
“Hazard has no place”
An observation that the severe Madrid quoitiden As also pitched. “Eden goes from bad to worse. If before we saw that he was not at one hundred percent of his abilities but rather 65%, the match against the rojiblancos (l’Athletic Bilbao, ndlr) again leaves a disturbing face of the player. The bad thing is that he starts to repeat performances of this spirit “, can we read in the debrief of the Spanish media. And with this level on the ground, “Hazard has no place“.

And if Hazard is so disappointing, the solutions seem fairly easy to find: “Rumor that he doesn’t deserve to be a starter begins to cross circles with Madrid supporters“. A real risk for the former Chelsea, who for him is lucky to still have the confidence of his coach. Yesterday,” ZZ “defended him at a press conference:”He has to regain confidence, play a good game, score a goal, something different. We know the player he is and you have to be patient, but he works. We are with him, we must be patient“Protection that seems foolproof, but until when?
Zidane: “Eden must regain confidence”
System changes do nothing
Because at 30, and after an almost white first season and a half, Eden Hazard no longer really has time to grope with Real. Arrived with great fanfare as the successor of Cristiano Ronaldo, the LOSC-trained player has only appeared ten times this season, for two small goals, far too far from the Portuguese’s standards.
However, Zidane tries solutions to increase the confidence of his winger. Thursday night, Hazard was positioned on the right wing, to then return more inside the game and have more freedom on the pitch, leaving the whole corridor to Lucas Vázquez. Aside from a pass for Asensio after which the Spaniard smashed the Bilbao goalkeeper post, the Belgian was not for the Basque defense what it must constantly be: a source of danger. And if even an asymmetric eleven designed for him doesn’t change the game, worries persist about what could change it.
Can he do better?
Because if Eden Hazard is not the only one responsible for the Madrid defeat (the defense of Real in the first half is also to point the finger), the summary of the match of the Belgian international by the Spanish press does not leave room for doubt. “Against Athletic, the innocuous version of number 7 has been revised: without influence in the game, unable to generate dangerous situations, bland and with a tendency to disappear from the playing field with each passing minute“, can we read in a stinging and intractable debrief.
Mbappé-Haaland, who Real should bet on? “If we are reasonable and rational…”
The question that emerges at Real Madrid is about what to expect from Hazard now. Can he do better? Or has he reached the end of his footballing abilities? When we watch the Real game on Thursday night, we see that the captain of the Belgian selection still has an above-average vision of the game. But without the confidence and the legs to go with it, that vision alone cannot be enough. So no, Hazard doesn’t seem finished. But if he does indeed still have the level of being an attacking leader in a club like Real Madrid, he would seriously benefit from showing it as soon as possible.
The situation of the native of La Louvière, As sums it up very well: “Madrid are waiting for him and there is no time. He is looking for his place, but he must deserve it: with performances like against Osasuna or against Athletic, no short-term solution is seen … “. Eden Hazard is the ghost of the player he was at Chelsea and in the 2018 World Cup, but he has yet to toast his last wild card. That being said, time is running out more than ever, and without injury, the Belgian will have no excuses to justify his poor performance on the pitch. Let’s hope for him that he doesn’t have to find any more.
