Real Madrid’s title aspirations have been given a possible blow as Eden Hazard was forced to end a training session on Wednesday with an ankle injury. The Belgian forward has been struggling with ankle problems all season, even undergoing a surgery in the United States on March 5. After suffering a new knock on his ankle, Hazard has missed

He is now a major doubt for Friday’s clash with Alaves at a crucial time of the season. Madrid are currently topping the table in La Liga and currently hold a point lead over FC Barcelona but have a game in hand. Hazard has made four starts in a row following the return of the campaign with Real picking up maximum points.

If Madrid win the game against Alaves on Friday they will move four points clear of Barcelona with three games to play. Boss Zinedine Zidane will face a defensive puzzle for the game on Friday as Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal are both suspended while Raphael Varane is recovering from a neck injury.
