Real Madrid wins first game of Zinedine Zidane’s second spell

(CNN)Zinedine Zidane began his second spell in charge of Real Madrid with victory after Isco and Gareth Bale scored in a 2-0 win against Celta Vigo Saturday.

The 46-year-old Zidane, who oversaw three consecutive Champions League titles with Real, picked out-of-favor Isco for his first start since October and was rewarded when the Spaniard scored in the 62nd minute.
Welshman Bale, who has also been under pressure at Real in recent weeks, hit the cross bar with a scissor kick but fired home a low shot from Marcelo’s cross after 77 minutes to restore some pride at the Santagio Bernabeu.
    “The sensations are good,” Zidane was quoted as saying by London’s Evening Standard.
    “We went in search of the win and we got it. We didn’t start well, but we had to be patient. We improved at the end of the first half and in the second. I’m happy.”
    Real is third in the La Liga table, two points behind Atletico Madrid and nine behind leader Barcelona.
    Zidane resigned after last year’s Champions League final victory against Liverpool, but was asked to return this week by club president Florentino Perez.
      The former Real playmaker replaced his ex-teammate Solari, who was promoted to the role of coach after Julen Lopetegui was dismissed following a poor run of form in October.
      Zidane has taken over with Real having little to play for except ensuring it qualifies for next season’s Champions League.
