The result means Real must score in the return leg to stand any chance of reaching a final against either Manchester City or PSG.

Afterwards Hazard said: ‘It could be better and it could be worse! We will go there looking for the win.

‘It’s always good to play against friends. Now I am a Real Madrid player so I just want to win.’

Real struggled with a three-man defence in the first-half, and were fortunate not to have conceded more than one goal before Benzema levelled 

Hazard added: ‘The manager decides what formation we play, we know how to play with three at the back but we can also play with four.’
