This is his very first national cup match with Real. The kind of competition that has worked well for him in the past.
Five days after his first start since his return from injury, Eden Hazard continues his journey with a competition he has never played until now. Although the Spanish Supercup is already on its record thanks to Madrid’s success last year, the Red Devil was not in the game in January 2020 during the matches against Valencia and Atletico in Saudi Arabia. He was injured in the ankle.
Twelve months later, he is ready to add this trophy a second time to his window. But this time, by actively participating. Because Eden has never won a national supercup while playing: a failure with Lille in the Champions Trophy then two others in the Community Shield with Chelsea.
