first_imgRelatedPosts Bale completes Tottenham return from Real Madrid Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tottenham re-signs Bale on loan Eden Hazard will need tests on a twisted ankle just three weeks before Real Madrid go to Barcelona in La Liga after hobbling off in his team’s 2-2 draw with Paris Saint Germain.“It’s more than just a knock,” said Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane. ‘It’s a knock on the ankle and a twist as well. And if it’s just a knock then that’s fine but if it’s a twist too.“Hopefully it will be okay with just three days rest. We will see on Wednesday. I hope it’s not a bad twist.”Hazard grimaced as he sat on the sidelines waiting for treatment.He eventually had to hobble around the perimeter, replaced by Gareth Bale who will now be even more important to Zidane if has to be without Hazard against Barcelona at the Nou Camp next month.“If we play like that every game I will sign for that.” said Zidane who was as happy with the display as he was concerned about Hazard’s injury.“His performance was spectacular,” he added.“Madrid were the better team,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. “Madrid played like a team that have won three Champions League in the last four seasons.“Keylor Navas played very well for us. But the plus for us is that we finish top of the group.”Asked why he had not started with Neymar who was a second half substitute, he said: “Neymar has been out for six weeks. I didn’t think he needed to play this game. I have spoken to him and I took the decision for him, for his fitness.”The game turned on a refereeing decision in the first half when Thibaut Courtois was sent off and had a penalty awarded against him only for VAR to advise the referee to over-rule the decision for a previous foul on Marcelo.“I thought VAR was only to be used in the event of the possibility of a clear and obvious error,” he said.“The referee had decided that it was not a foul. I don’t think VAR should have intervened. It was a bit strange.”Tags: Eden HazardReal MadridZinedine Zidanelast_img
