It doesn’t worry me’ – Zidane on Hazard missing chances in UCL clash

The Belgian was guilty of missing a number of chances in front of goal on Tuesday but his manager isn’t concerned

“It doesn’t worry me,” Zidane said. “He’s better and he’s going to improve more.

“The important thing is that he continues to have chances, because he’s going to put them in.”

Another much-maligned Belgian at the club is goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but he produced one of his better performances in a Madrid shirt, making several vital saves and Zidane applauded him.

“He has clearly saved us in the first half,” Zidane said of Courtois. “We are happy for him and for the whole team – he needed that kind of match as well. He allowed us to get all three points.

“There is always a lot of criticism when we lose and today we won, we played with personality and the players have deserved the victory.”

The win leaves Madrid second in Group A, five points adrift of pacesetters Paris Saint-Germain, who have won all three of their matches.
