​Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard picked up a hairline fracture in his right fibula against Levante, the club have now confirmed.


The Belgium international was starting back-to-back games for the first time since November and even had Real Madrid's best chance of the match, but Levante's José Luis Morales scored the only goal of the game with a stunning shot that went inside the near post.


Real Madrid's immediate attention turned to Hazard, and it's now been confirmed by the club that the forward suffered a hairline fracture to his right fibula.


The club hasn't provided an initial timeframe for when Hazard is likely to return.

Manager Zinedine Zidane was concerned about Hazard's situation after the defeat to Levante, with the Frenchman admitting that tests would be needed to determine the severity of the injury.


"It's bad, it doesn't look good because he hurt himself where he was injured. It's a knock, not more than a knock, but we'll see if it's not much," Zidane said. "Right now it hurts him, and we'll see tomorrow when we do more tests."


Hazard has already been injured for 97 days during his short career at Real Madrid, although he did feature in all but one of their Champions League group stage matches.


The 29-year-old missed three games between August and September before missing another at the end of November, but Hazard's only just returned from his longest spell out of the team where he picked up a hairline fracture in his foot - missing 16 games across all competitions.


Saturday's defeat, meanwhile, which was Hazard's 15th appearance since he joined, has left Real Madrid without a win in their last two games, with Los Blancos now two points behind Barcelona in La Liga.

Real did win the Supercopa de España earlier this season, but they've already been knocked out of the Copa del Rey - and Hazard's injury will give Manchester City the slight advantage in next week's Champions League last 16 match.


Hazard will also miss next week's Clásico against Barcelona and although it's still too early to tell he could also be ruled out of the second leg of their Champions League clash with City.
