Eden Hazard makes his Real Madrid debut vs Bayern Munich
Real Madrid fans saw Eden Hazard in action for the first time on Saturday night.
Hazard played 45 minutes against Bayern Munich at the International Champions Cup in America.
The Belgian, who joined Los Blancos from Chelsea in a €100 million transfer, played the first half against the Bavarians.
For the record, Hazard penned a five-year deal with Real Madrid.

Will the Belgian wear that number all season?
Marca aren’t willing to say that on Sunday, as the Spanish paper indicate that Hazard’s number 50 shirt could be a one-off:
Eden Hazard made his Real Madrid debut in Houston against Bayern Munichwearing the No.50 on the back of his shirt.
Still without an official squad number, with his preferred No.7 occupied by Mariano Diaz, the Belgian has opted for a unique option for his first match in white.
Hazard has gone for the No.50 in homage to the moon landing which was achieved 50 years ago, on July 20, 1969.
Will Eden Hazard will wear the number 23 shirt?
Last week Marca reported that Hazard is keen to wear #23 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
That’s because famous sportsmen have all worn that number: David Beckham at Madrid, plus Michael Jordan and LeBron James in the NBA.
Sergio Reguilon wore the number 23 last season, but that’ll change in 2019-20.
Reguilon has departed the Bernabeu this summer, to join Sevilla on a season-long loan.
With number 7, number 23, number 44 or number 50? Eden Hazard will make his debut for Real Madrid tonight in a friendly against Bayern Munich. His squad number still hasn’t been officially assigned. #rmcf #halamadrid pic.twitter.com/V1yq4L2eWk
