Eden Hazard had the worst stats during Real Madrid's Champions League round of 16 loss to Man City at the Etihad.

The former Chelsea star produced an under-par performance as the 13-time champions were dumped out of the competition

Two mistakes by Raphael Varane proved costly to the team for each goal but Hazard has shown to be ineffective in the 83 minutes he played.

According to Squawka, the 29-year-old failed to complete a single dribble against Pep Guardiola's side in the two attempts failing to live up to his hefty price tag.

Another fact observed by Opta was that he completed 27 passes against City, with just 17 of those coming in the opposition's half.

Hazard was also the second-lowest figure of any player that started for Zinedine Zidane's side touching the ball just 37 times.

The Belgian attacker scored just one goal and provided seven assists in their title-winning campaign but his performance did not impress the Real Madrid faithful.

One fan tweeted: "Hazard was terrible, felt like watching Sunday league player."

Another harshly commented: "Eden Hazard is the most useless player of this generation."

A third added: "We have to sell Hazard immediately. What a useless guy."

One simply stated: "Hazard's signing was a waste of money."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Real Madrid fans have vented their anger on players and the manager after a dismal performance in their 2-1 defeat against Manchester City.

Los Blancos were outclassed by the Citizens who created many chances in the match but failed to make it count.

And the Madridsta's took to the club's official Facebook page to lash out at the manager Zinedine Zidane who kept the inefficient Eden Hazard on the pitch for too long.

Legit.ng also reported that Man City vs Real Madrid saw the Citizens cruised into the last eight of the Champions League following a 2-1 win.

Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored in each half of the match as Karim Benzema's equalizer was not enough for Los Merengues.

Raphael Varane committed a dreadful error as Gabriel Jesus stole the ball and provided the pass for the arriving Sterling who poked the ball home to make it 1-0 in the ninth minute.
