It was a winning start for manager Zinedine Zidane on his return to Real Madrid as his side beat Celta Vigo 2-0.

Goals by Gareth Bale and Isco gave Zidane a winning start on his return to the Bernabeu on Saturday.

Isco, out of favour under previous coach Santiago Solari, made it 1-0 when he tapped in striker Karim Benzema’s low cross from close range.
