Eden Hazard opened the scoring for Real Madrid at home to Huesca on Saturday afternoon in a game that Los Blancos went on to win 4-1.
The Belgian had not found the back of the net in 392 days for Real Madrid, with his last goal having come against Granada last season, and he was clearly happy.

“Hi guys! Happy to be back and score a nice goal,” Hazard said in a message for Real Madrid TV.
“This is for you. I hope to see you soon. See you later!”
Hazard explained how his goal came about, with him receiving the ball and turning in one motion before firing a long-distance shot past Andres Fernandez.
“It’s a good goal,” the forward admitted. “I received it from [Marco] Asensio, turned and shot.
“Of course the goal is something that provides confidence.”

When asked about the match as a whole, he was content with the way in which Real Madrid were able to flex their muscles in attack.
“The first half was not good, but we achieved the two goals,” Hazard stated.
“Then the team managed to score and we got four. I am very happy”.
