Real Madrid succumbed to a three-nil loss against Paris Saint Germain in their opening match of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League. Los Blancos were completely outplayed by the Parisians, with several players going missing on the night. Eden Hazard was one of them and was slammed on social media.
Eden Hazard hasn’t had the best o starts to his Real Madrid career. The Belgian international joined the club from Chelsea, after spending seven years with the latter. However, an injury ruled him out from making his official debut for his new side until September 14.
Hazard made his first full start for the club during their Champions League match against PSG. However, the ex-Chelsea man failed to live up to the standards set by himself and ended up going missing on the night.
Fans were quick to point out the Real Madrid star’s poor performance, slamming him for the same.
Real Madrid paid over £100m for Eden Hazard.
He's got fewer European goals since 2009-10 than:
– Danny Welbeck (12)
– Georginio Wijnaldum (13)
– Wilfried Bony (16) pic.twitter.com/2NmkdfeDtj

Neymar really sat in the stands and affected the game as much as Hazard did today. That’s tough

Hazard will soon realise Real Madrid fans arent patient….
They booed Ronaldo…arguably the greatest player to play for them.
Chelsea fans might appreciate Take-ons and Twerk videos….but Madrid fans only want goals.🤷🏽♂️#PSGRMA

I'll never understand how Hazard is called a better player than Salah because it's not just about goals or assists but Firmino gets criticised because he doesn't score enough goals. 😂

Angel di Maria scored twice as PSG beat Real Madrid in their opening UEFA Champions League match. Thomas Meunier, meanwhile, added a third in stoppage time to further pile on the misery on Zinedine Zidane.
Los Blancos will next meet up with Club Brugge, who drew their opening match against Galatasaray. PSG, on the other hand, will visit Turkey to play against the latter.
