Hazard finally bags in Champions League for Madrid


EDEN Hazard summoned a moment of brilliance to earn and score a penalty for his long-awaited first Champions League goal for Real Madrid, but a moment of madness will steal the headlines after Arturo Vidal’s baffling sending off.

  Three years and three days after his last Champions League goal, $115 million playmaker Hazard scored for the first time in the competition for the club he joined almost 18 months ago from Chelsea.

  Reminding fans of the trickery that made him one of the most sought-after players in the world, the Belgium magician worked his way out of a tight position on the left-hand byline with less than five minutes played, then exchanged a slick one-two before drawing a foul from Nicolo Barella.

  Hazard’s goal looked like taking the limelight before an extraordinary loss of composure from Arturo Vidal, forcing English referee, Anthony Taylor when he was booked twice in seconds after suffering a complete meltdown inside the penalty area.
