Real Madrid have confirmed that they will carry out more diagnosis on Eden Hazard after picking a knock in his side's 2-2 draw against Paris Saint Germain in Tuesday's Champions League clash.

The Belgian forward featured for just 68 minutes after making space for out-of-favour star Gareth Bale for the remainder of the game.

Although, Spanish news outlet, FootballEspana.net reports that the former Chelsea will be out for about ten days.

"After the tests carried out today on our player Eden Hazard by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with an external bruise on his right leg.

The club added on their website: "His recovery will continue to be assessed."

Hazard joined Los Blancos from Chelsea in a five-year deal valued around €100 million in August but has failed to impress at the club.

The Belgium international has scored just one goal and assisted one other in 13 matches across competitions since his dream move about four months back.

Zinedine Zidane during his post-match conference expressed fears about his player's injury but added that initial test results showed the injury was not very bad.

If things go as planned, Hazard will only miss Real's upcoming games against Alaves and Espanyol.

Hazard has not broken or damaged any muscles with only bruising detected, meaning he is likely to return in under a fortnight.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Eden Hazard has been in sensational form for Real Madrid of late and he has shown why he is regarded as one of the best dribblers of the game.

Los Blancos surrendered a two-goal lead against PSG to draw 2-2 but Hazard's contributions before he was being substituted was something to write home about.

Karim Benzema scored two goals for the hosts but a goal each from Kylian Mbappe and Pablo Sarabia in the second half ensured the game ended in a stalemate.
