Hazard will miss the club’s opening league match away to Celta Vigo on Saturday. The former Chelsea forward, who joined the club in June for a fee that could rise to £130m, picked up the injury in training on Friday. He had tests after the session which revealed a muscular injury to the anterior part of his right thigh.

Eden was Real’s most high-profile signing in a busy summer for the 13-time European champions, who spent almost £300m on new recruits. He scored once in seven pre-season matches for Los Blancos.

Real are also without fellow winger Marco Asensio for the start of the new campaign due to a serious knee injury, while Dani Carvajal is suspended.
