Eden Hazard He did not play against Milan, but his set-up plan is still on the right track. Last Saturday he returned to exercise this Saturday with the rest of the group, thus ending the last phase of his recovery and it only has a little more shooting left to compete with all the guarantees.
The question is whether to arrive at the appointment in six days before the Alavs. The player, who returned from his vacation on July 27, spent last week the camera test hypoxia along with some of his companions who remained to do so, as is the case of Bale or the three Brazilians from the Copa America: Casemiro, Militao and Vincius. These three players, who joined training last Tuesday after the holidays, have already played minutes and will be in Mendizorroza in the league debut.
And it is that Ancelotti tries to arrive at the appointment against Alavs next Saturday with all his troops. Another question is Benzema, that is still outside the group and that has been incorporated later because of the covid. He did not join the rest of the squad until last Wednesday, so his return just eleven days later will be very hasty. Odriozola did not arrive nor did Kroos, Mendy and Carvajal.
Hazard is responding to the demands of the physical trainer Antonio Pintus. The player was injured in the round of 16 of the Eurocup in view of Portugal and I no longer played the quarters before Italy. He arrived in Madrid very recovered from his muscle injury But he followed a very prepared plan to gradually return to the activity of the group. The deadlines have been met and the goal of the Belgian is to be already in the league premiere. He knows that this season there is no more room for error and he wants to change the dynamics from the beginning. He could not debut neither the first nor the second year on the first day because I did not arrive in shape. In his arrival he did not do so until the fourth day and the last campaign until the eighth. In this campaign, Hazard has arrived in better shape and seems willing to correct past mistakes.
