Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard pulled out of training after he suffered a setback on his ankle injury that previously ruled him out of the last two games.
Hazard first spell at Real Madrid has been marred by injury which has limited his involvement in the starting line up to just 13 under Zinedine Zidane.
The Belgian returned to training on Tuesday but he was forced to pull out towards the end of the training match with the attacker feeling unease around his ankle according to Cadena Ser, that was done to prevent further damage on the ankle he is expected to feature against Alaves on Friday in the upcoming La Liga clash.
Hazard missed almost three months of action this season after he suffered from a broken bone in his foot against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last year November and he was forced to go under the knife.
Zidane will be without his influential captain Sergio Ramos, Nacho Fernandez, Luka Jovic and Dani Carvajal for the clash against Alaves on Friday evening.
Hazard has scored just once in 19 games for Real Madrid.
With just four games remaining in the La Liga Santander, Real Madrid top the Spanish league with one point, but have a game in hand.
The Belgian is expected to be fit for the clash against Alaves on Friday evening
