Watch: Luca Zidane Makes Real Madrid Debut, Error Costs Vital Lead

Luca Zidane, the son of the legendary Zinedine Zidane, made his first ever start for Real Madrid last night and had something of a mixed night.

Zinedine Zidane’s son Luca Zidane featured for his father’s side yesterday as they faced off against Villareal in an absolutely crucial game for their hopes of nabbing second-place as this year’s La Liga season dies down.

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo each netted to put Madrid in the lead but after Ronaldo was subbed in the second-half, Villareal were able to capitalise scoring twice to level the game.

The talent of the manager’s debutant son Luca was on display when he made a fantastic save early on.

And while Zidane’s inexperience at the top-level is understandable, a late mistake, when faced with substitute Roger Martinez in a one-on-one, caused his side to drop precious points to Atletico Madrid, who now lead them by two points with their final game of the season in hand.
