Even Zinedine Zidane is under the spell of Eden Hazard. "His first half was impressive. We are happy, he will become an important player of Real Madrid, that's for sure.said the White House coach after his performance at Eibar Saturday (4-0).

ZZ must know that if Karim Benzema is the current top scorer in Liga this season, he owes some of that to Hazard. The two men are indeed very complicit on the green rectangle, as had been the international tricolor with a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.
The figures confirm this state of affairs. Hazard gave the ball to Benzema six times (only Modric was found by the Belgian, 7) when the French sent the leather 10 times in his direction. The two players of Real Madrid seek especially permanently as soon as they enter the penalty area. As at the time CR7, Benzema is therefore an essential cog in the merengue attack. Except now he's the one at the end of the line.
