Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard fit to face Chelsea

Real Madrid have been handed a massive injury boost with Eden Hazard set to be fit to face his former club, Chelsea. 

Hazard has struggled with injuries since switching to Madrid from Chelsea with his latest setback seeing him miss eight matches. However, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says the Belgian will be available for selection when they take on Chelsea in the Champions League.

The 29-year-old returned to training with the rest of his teammates at Valdebebas today and is in line to face the Blues. 

 "Eden will be with us, he will be on the list (squad)," Zidane told the press.

The Los Blancos will also welcome midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. Modric has been on the sidelines with a back injury that saw him miss two games while Kroos is back doing individual training having missed Madrid's win over Cadiz. 

Another massive boost is the return of captain Sergio Ramos who has been out since the start of the month. The Spaniard has started doing some individual training with all but the first leg of the Champions League comes too soon.
