Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has hailed the performance of Real Madrid star Eden Hazard in the 3-0 victory over Celtic in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Hazard replaced Karim Benzema in the first-half after our striker suffered an injury and scored Real Madrid’s third goal.

Courtois said: “It was important for him to feel right. He was downhearted after the penalty miss against Celta Vigo and then he missed the last couple of LaLiga games. He’s a wonderful player, he’s got so much quality.

“The first five minutes were tough but once he got up to speed with the game he played a key role for us. The goal and the assist show what he’s all about. He’ll be pleased, he’s shown the coach he can take more opportunities.”
