What Eden Hazard did after Chelsea knocked out Real Madrid that shocked everybody 1 Sportelo

Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard’s emotions at the full-time whistle after Chelsea knocked his team of the Champions League have caused argument.

The 30-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his departure in 2019 but it was an unhappy return after Thomas Tuchel’s side won 2-0 on the night, 3-1 on aggregate, to seal their place in the Champions League final later this month.

Hazard was kept quiet all night by the Blues and was substituted in the later stages of the second half.

At full time when Real’s exit was confirmed, Hazard headed over to his former teammates and was captured in an extremely happy mood despite defeat.

His reactions have caused quite a stir amongst the Spanish media and the wider footballing community as Hazard embraced his return to west London.

A number of Real Madrid fans criticised Eden Hazard after he was seen laughing with Chelsea’s players following his team’s Champions League semi-final defeat at Stamford Bridge.

The first tie in Spain finished 1-1 but Chelsea outplayed their opponents in west London on Tuesday night, with goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount setting up an all-English final against Manchester City.

Real Madrid’s Hazard struggled to make an impact in both matches against his former club and was seen talking to some of his ex-teammates following this evening’s defeat.



Former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchinson told BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘I’ve just seen some bizarre scenes.

“Eden Hazard is laughing with Kurt Zouma and Edouard Mendy. It’s a Champions League semi-final.

“I know they are his friends but I can’t imagine Cristiano Ronaldo coming off the pitch for Real Madrid laughing. That’s how laid back Hazard is.

Speaking after Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid, Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta said: ‘We had a tough opponent but the team performed really well and we scored two goals.

‘We can’t forget the saves from Edouard Mendy in the first half. The second half we were clearly better and we had a few chances to score more goals – but we fought really hard.

‘This campaign in the Champions League we have played two Spanish teams, but the most important thing is we are in the final. There is one more step and we will try to win, of course.

‘We have a fantastic squad, everybody pushes hard in training, to be together, to fight for everyone and to help each other. This is massive and we have created a strong group. We have plenty of things to fight for.’
