Hazard hasn’t played since injuring his ankle on Nov. 26 in a match against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. He had been practicing with the rest of the team for the last two weeks but was yet to be included in the squad.
“We know what Hazard can add to the team,” Zidane said. “It was time to get him back.” Madrid enters Sunday's game tied on points with Barcelona, which edged Getafe 2-1 on Saturday.
