After 32 days... Hazard has made his return

Eden Hazard returned to action during Real Madrid's draw away at Elche, coming on for the final quarter of an hour.

It was his first match since suffering an injury against Alaves on November 28, even though he had been training with the rest of the group for well over a week already.

The Belgian had followed a special recovery plan, designed to ensure that he won't relapse this time around. That's why Zinedine Zidane waited so long to bring him on.

Last time out, Zidane even said that the Granada match wasn't the right game to reintroduce the player because it was so tense and in the balance at the end. The Frenchman is serious about making this injury comeback last.

When Hazard did come on, he had an opportunity to help his team get a winning goal. The game was calling out for a player of his quality and with his one-vs-one ability.

However, he and his teammates couldn't score again and they were held to a 1-1 draw, ending a six-match winning run that Hazard couldn't participate in at all.
