Zinedine Zidane's risky team selection looked to have backfired as Real Madrid struggled to overcome a fired-up Huesca side, but Karim Benzema came to his manager's rescue by curling in a sensational late winner.
Zinedine Zidane got 30 from the last 30 points available in La Liga 2015/16. A feat which was not enough for the Frenchman to prevent Barcelona from lifting the title, but he try to do the same again this season to get Real Madrid back on track.
Gerard Lopez has asked not to politicise the decision taken by some clubs such as Valladolid, Villarreal, Huesca and Rayo Vallecano to refuse to release their players for the friendly between Catalonia and Venezuela. As a result, the Catalans will not be at full strength for the clash.
