Isco Gave Real Madrid Control Vs PSG- Zinedine Zidane

share on:

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has praised Isco for his “control” of the Champions League last-16 first leg against Paris Saint-Germain.

Real Madrid recorded a 3-1 victory, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo brace and a late Marcelo strike.

Zidane sprung a major shock before the game when he left Gareth Bale on the bench in favour of Isco but the Frenchman explained his reasoning behind the decision.

“With Isco I looked for control of the ball and we had it, with four in the middle against three of them. Isco had a great game,” Zidane is quoted by Football Espana as saying.

“We played a great team game, from the beginning. It was a well-deserved victory. We’re very happy with the result and with the content of the game. We had personality, and our fans were behind the team at all times.

“Winning 3-1 isn’t over. There is a return game, we have to play it and not be overconfident because it’s going to be another story and we know we’re going to suffer.”
