Hazard nets first Madrid goal in 392 days in win
And Madrid were unconvincing for the majority of the first half until Hazard opened the scoring with a stunning long-range effort on 40 minutes to score his first goal for the club in 392 days ago — since Oct. 5, 2019.
The pressure appeared to be off the hosts and they added a third through Federico Valverde‘s rifled shot into the bottom the corner.
Zidane claimed in the build to this match that the pair had resolved their issues and Vinicus played in Benzema for a chance to add a fourth, but the Frenchman fluffed his effort over the bar.
Huesca pulled a goal back on 74 minutes through David Ferreiro, but Madrid added a fourth as Benzema finished off after being set up by Rodrygo.
