Eden Hazard did not set foot on Giuseppe-Meazza’s lawn on Wednesday evening. The Belgian remained on the bench, where he was able to witness the victory of his teammates against Inter Milan (0-1). At kick-off, Carlo Ancelotti preferred Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez. And even when the Italian coach made changes, the two nominated were replaced by Rodrygo and Asensio.

After the meeting, Ancelotti explained this choice: “ Eden Hazard is doing well. I thought about bringing him in in the second half, but Inter closed the game very well in the axis and I wanted to open the game from the sides, that’s why I opted for Rodrygo. Since the start of the season, Hazard has played only one full game, out of the four he has taken part in.
