Zidane’s son Luca starts in goal for Real, concedes early goal

Zinedine Zidane’s son Luca got off to the worst possible start after starting in goal for Real Madrid against Huesca on Sunday, conceding within three minutes against the rock-bottom side.

Luca Zidane, 20, was helpless as Cucho Hernandez crashed a shock early opener into the top corner at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The goal came moments into his second start between the posts for Real, ahead of injured first-choice stopper Thibaut Courtois and Keylor Navas, who has only just returned from international duty with Costa Rica.

An Under-20 France international, Luca is the third Zidane to wear the Real Madrid kit, after his father and brother Enzo, who currently plays for Rayo Majadahonda in the Spanish second tier.

Zidane also rested Raphael Varane, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos for the match against rock-bottom Huesca, as third-placed Real look to stay on the heels of local rivals Atletico Madrid in second.
