Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says Eden Hazard will be fit for their Champions League semifinal against Chelsea.

Hazard will be heading back to Stamford Bridge for the semi fully fit.

He is again sidelined but is closing in on a first team return with Zidane claiming his desire to return is higher than ever.

"He is feeling very better and he is ready," he said. "He wants to be back more than anyone else.

"We have been more cautious with [Dani] Carvajal and Hazard, because they are relapses.

"They are both better and that is good for the team."
