Isco smiles again with a goal and dedication to his child

Central-midfielder Isco Alcarcon scored his first goal of Zinedine Zidane's second period in charge of Real Madrid, calmly controlling a through ball from Karim Benzema and finishing well. VAR was briefly consulted, but the goal stood.

Real Madrid had been struggling to find a breakthrough against a stubborn Celta Vigo side before Isco found the net with his first goal for the club since a Copa del Rey clash in December. 

Totally out of Santiago Solari's plans, Isco finally had a smile back on his face as he broke the deadlock at the Bernabeu, seemingly picking up from where he has left off under Zidane back in 2017-18. 

Isco was a surprise inclusion in the Frenchman's starting line-up, with left-back Marcelo and goalkeeper Keylor Navas also returning to the side in place of Sergio Reguilon and Thibaut Courtois respectively. Gareth Bale made the starting line-up as well, meaning the Real Madrid team resembled the one of recent years.

And after scoring, Isco dedicated his goal to his first child and partner, sucking his thumb and applauding.
