Bayern spoil Hazard’s Real debut

Bayern Munich spoiled Eden Hazard’s Real Madrid debut, downing the Spanish giants 3-1 in a friendly in Houston Saturday despite goalkeeper Sven Ulreich’s sending off.

Corentin Tolisso, Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry had given Bundesliga champions Bayern a comfortable 3-0 lead before recent Real Madrid signing Rodrygo grabbed a consolation goal with a brilliant free kick.

That followed Ulreich’s departure in the 81st for a foul on Brazilian teen Rodrygo outside the area.

Rodrygo, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy all made their debuts for rebuilding Real Madrid -- all coming on at halftime as Zinedine Zidane changed his entire side.

Hazard’s first outing in a Madrid jersey since his high-priced move from Chelsea had dominated the headlines.

But despite getting a starting nod he made little impact at the NRG Stadium -- home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, where the European giants produced plenty of lively end-to-end action from the kickoff.
