Real Madrid’s 4-2 win over Granada on Saturday saw Eden Hazard score his first goal for the club. He’s made three league starts and two Champions League appearances for his new club this season, but it was in the first half’s additional time that he finally netted wearing the famous white strip.
Hazard has been criticised by AS and Marca for his poor performances so far this season, particularly in the Madrid derby recently. However, the Belgian and Madrid fans alike will have been relieved that he’s finally got the monkey off his back, and they’ll hope he can kick on and guide Zinedine Zidane’s men to the La Liga title.
Gareth Bale took to Twitter after the game to congratulate his teammate on the goal, posting a picture of the two celebrating together. He said: “3 points! Congratulations on your first @realmadrid goal @hazardeden10.” However, most fans chose to focus on Bale’s performance, which included an assist, and were full of praise.

Do you think Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard can become part of Zinedine Zidane’s first-choice attacking partnership?
