The upcoming international break is the first for the new season.
Eden Hazard has not played competitively for Real Madrid since his signing was confirmed this summer from Premier League giants Chelsea in a £100m deal.
The 28-year-old suffered a muscular injury just before the start of this season.
He will definitely miss the Villarreal game at El Madrigal.
Zinedine Zidane expects him to miss the upcoming qualifiers for Belgium though the Frenchman is increasingly confident that he will able to make his debut in the home league clash with Levante at the end of the international break for the month of September.
