Eden Hazard scored his first goal for Real Madrid in over a year and Karim Benzema struck twice as the Spanish champions coasted to a 4-1 win at home to Huesca in La Liga.

Hazard marked his Real Madrid return since July by scoring a sensational second goal for Los Blancos. 

The Belgian has struggled massively since making the big money switch from Chelsea in 2019 and will be hoping to have really kick-started his career in the Spanish capital today.

After going a remarkable 392 days without scoring a club goal, Hazard bagged the opener against Huesca in La Liga this afternoon with a wonderful strike.

Zinedine Zidane's side soon extended their lead in added time of the first half when Benzema chested down a cross from Lucas Vazquez and fired inside the far post.

Federico Valverde further stretched their lead in the second half before David Ferreiro pulled a goal back for Huesca.

Benzema rounded off a classy overall display by heading home from close range in added time as the league leaders recorded their fifth win out of seven matches this season.
