Euro2016: Belgium captain Hazard wary of Wales ‘superstar’ Bale

Eden Hazard knows very well that Gareth Bale will be the real danger for his Belgium team against Wales on Friday night.

The Red Devils meet the Dragons in the Euro2016 quarter-final in Lille and Chelsea playmaker Hazard acutely understands that Real Madrid's Bale is the opposition's main man.

Belgium have failed to beat Wales in their past three encounters but captain Hazard feels he has identified a way to break the mould.

"We didn't create too many chances against Wales in recent times," Hazard said.

"We struggled to score goals. They've got a large defensive block, they play with five at the back, they're difficult to displace.

"They've got top players in the middle of the park and a real superstar up front. I hope that tomorrow's match will be different to the last one we played against them.

"I hope we can create a lot of chances and score goals."
