Eden Hazard back in the team as Zidane names squad for Alaves clash

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has named a 22-man squad for their LaLiga match against Alaves on Friday night. 

The Los Blancos would reclaim their four-point lead with a win at their Alfredo di Stefano Stadium, which would also move them closer to a 34th LaLiga title. 

The Frenchman has been boosted by the availability of Eden Hazard, who reportedly pulled out of training with a knock. 

The Belgian has shown glimpses of his former self in recent matches, and his availability will be a welcome relief for Zidane and the team, as they need their best team possible for the tough run ahead. 

The former Chelsea ace started well after the restart, assisting twice in two wins for the Madrid club.

Madrid's lead at the top of the table was trimmed to a single point by second-placed Barcelona, who narrowly beat Espanyol on Wednesday night. 

With only four matches to go, Zidane's men are atop the standings on 77 points, while the Catalans are currently on 76.
