Zinadine Zidane’s second return to Real Madrid as coach started with a 2-0 win against Celta Vigo on Saturday, with Gareth Bale and Isco scoring in the second half.

Isco fired the Los Blancos in front by tapping in striker Karim Benzema’s low cross from close range, before Wales international Bale netted Real’s second in the 77th minute when his low shot went in off the post.

With this win, Real are two points behind second-placed Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

Their local rivals, Atletico, play Athletic Bilbao later on Saturday, while league leaders Barcelona travel to Real Betis on Sunday.
