Eden Hazard has sustained a fresh muscle injury, and is set to miss Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Atalanta.

Hazard returned to action after a two-month lay-off to make a cameo appearance in Madrid’s 2-1 Liga victory over Elche on Saturday, but has picked up another knock ahead of the club’s latest European outing.

The Belgian winger sat out first-team training on Monday, with the Blancos subsequently confirming that he is suffering with a muscle issue.

A statement on Madrid’s official website reads: “After the tests carried out today on our player Eden Hazard by Real Madrid’s medical team, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”
