Real believed they were in a more than complicated situation in the 2020-2021 Champions League. While the Madrid club had been defeated to everyone’s surprise by Shaktar Donetsk on the first day (2-3), Zinédine Zidane’s players came close to a new call to order on Tuesday evening on the lawn of Borussia Monchengladbach.
Led 2-0 following a double from Marcus Thuram, Real Madrid was late in catching up thanks to the achievements of Karim Benzema (87th) and Casemiro (93rd). Coming into play during the second half, for his return to the team after a long absence, Eden Hazard returned to the result obtained by the players of the Madrid club.
Hazard wants to “keep playing football”
Far from being choosy, the Belgian felt it was a good thing to have been able to leave with a point. “This draw gives three points”, Hazard said. “We played with a lot of character and even had the chance to score another goal, but I missed that opportunity. We are leaving Germany with a draw, but it tastes like a victory.
After two or three months of absence from the field, I am very happy. I just want to keep playing football now, because that’s what I’m here for “, he said.
