Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard face off in the decisive World Cup tie in Wales against Belgium

Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard may be on opposite sides in Wales’ World Cup qualifier against Belgium on Tuesday, but they will have one thing in common.

Both are talismans for their national teams, but things are not so good at home.

They both have a rocky relationship with their club, Real Madrid, as Bale has ignited the fury of Madrid fans in the Spanish press, while Hazard staggers as he desperately tries to snatch some playing time with Carlo Ancelotti.

However, the Welshman and the Belgian stand out on the international stage when they don the captain’s armband of their respective countries.

Bale has become famous for putting his country, and golf, above his club. He became famous for antagonizing Real Madrid in 2019 when he and his Welsh teammates raised a flag that read ‘Wales’. Golf. Madrid. In that order.’

The controversial move took place after Wales beat Hungary to qualify for Euro 2020, and came amid frenzied celebrations with the crowd in Cardiff.

At that time, Bale was strongly linked to a departure from the Bernabéu and was caught on camera laughing, which did not go down very well with the fans in Madrid.

But the tension between the Welshman and Madrid erupted last week when the Spanish media criticized Bale for playing for their country.

The winger has not played for Real Madrid since August 28, in their clash against Real Betis, after suffering a hamstring tear in September.

But he won his 100th game for Wales when he landed a first-half cameo for Rob Page’s team against Belarus last week. Bale lined up early in the World Cup tie, but was substituted at halftime.

After Wales’ victory, he was forced to reveal after the game that his replacement was planned in advance, but his attitude has since been scathingly described as “unpresentable” by frustrated reporters in Spain.

In El Sanhedrin de Carrusel Deportivo, via WHATAntonio Romero pointed to this statistic and even criticized the 32-year-old as a “bad example in the locker room.”

His attitude is unpresentable of being the highest paid of Real Madrid. Madrid on June 30 takes a weight off their shoulders, ‘said Romero. I think he is a bad example in the dressing room and someone in private should sing him forty.

“It is a pity that today he starts with the national team after more than two months without playing for Madrid. He is making fun of the plate he defends.

Bale started the season brilliantly with Carlo Ancelotti, having played in the first two LaLiga games of the campaign, but then recovered his latest setback in training and was excluded from action for two months.

Remarkably, his appearance against Belarus was his fourth international appearance this season. In comparison, he has only played three times for Madrid.

He has become a burden on Madrid as his weekly salary is reported to be £ 600,000, making him the highest paid player in the club. Since he last donned the Madrid jersey in the last week of August, he has earned around £ 6.6 million.

But Wales coach Page revealed that the Real Madrid striker would not be a starter against Belgium on Tuesday, and could miss out entirely.

Wales will make a late decision on whether the Madrid striker and his record scorer enter the bench against the world’s top-ranked team.

On the Belgium game, Page said: ‘I was never going to start against Belgium.

We knew it when we got to the camp. The plan was always for him to take half in the first game and then come in and maybe have an impact in the second game.

It’s going to be stiff. He hasn’t played for a couple of months and releasing it was a huge request from a physical point of view.

‘He will recover by himself (on Monday) and we leave him for the last minute to see if he can play minutes. It is coming, slowly but surely. We will get you back in top shape.

‘It’s frustrating for him. He put in a tremendous effort to get fit for the game and takes credit for that. ”

Still, Bale’s break from the game probably isn’t an olive branch enough to save him from the fury that awaits him in the Spanish capital.

Meanwhile, Hazard has struggled to make an impact at the Bernabéu since arriving as one of Chelsea’s top stars in 2019.

The Belgian has failed to reach the same heights that convinced Madrid to shell out an initial £ 89m fee as his stuttering LaLiga career has been hampered by injuries, leaving him struggling to gain playing time.

Hazard has scored just five goals in 54 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos and, as a result, has lost his place in the starting eleven and been linked to a withdrawal.

In a new blow, coach Carlo Ancelotti seems willing to let the striker go and is convinced that he will be free to leave if he so wishes.

The Madrid manager, who returned for his second season at the Bernabéu in the summer, gave a damning accusation about Hazard’s prospects at the Bernabéu when he said his star man must come to terms with the fact that he has slipped down the pecking order. and admitted that he preferred other players. .

“ He has absolutely everything, but he has to put up with the situation, ” Ancelotti said. Spanish media. “Right now he has a coach who prefers other players.”

His comments practically confirmed that Hazard’s absence from Madrid’s line-ups is not solely due to fitness issues.

Despite being fit for most of this season, the 30-year-old has made just 11 appearances and scored one goal.

Ancelotti has turned to other members of his squad, relying heavily on Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

But Hazard’s career in Belgium tells a different story.

He captained Roberto Martinez’s team in their qualification for next year’s World Cup and maintained his undefeated qualifying streak by beating Estonia 3-1 in Brussels.

Despite his injury problems and poor form in Madrid, Hazard also looked encouraged for Belgium during his Euro 2020 campaign.

The Belgian appears to go back to the years when he played for his national team, providing classic Hazard performances rarely seen at Real Madrid.

With Belgium topping Group E and Wales guaranteed a play-off berth thanks to their Nations League campaign, we could see Bale and Hazard heading to Qatar, but what remains to be seen is whether they will both remain on Real’s books. Madrid when they do. .
