Isco and Bale welcomes Zidane back to Real Madrid with a win.
Gareth Bale and Isco has provided a good welcome gesture to manager Zinedine Zidane on his return with a 2-0 home win over Celta Vigo.
Zidane came in with new picks, with Thibaut Courtois dropping to the bench for Keylor Navas. Starting Isco, sidelined under Santiago Solari, and much criticized Gareth Bale.
Luka Modric made first attempt after 57 minutes, but was disallowed for offside position.
Marco Asensio went past two players on the edge of the box before threading in Karim Benzema, who found Isco in the middle with a low cross few minutes later to score one.
At 77th minute, Zidane’s side doubled when Marcelo sent a massage through Bale to finish with a right-footed shot off the inside of the post. In the grand scheme of things, the result matters little to Real Madrid, whose season is over, but it got Zidane off to a winning start.
