manager Zinedine Zidane has defended picking his son Luca in goal for his side's 3-2 victory at home to Huesca on Sunday.

With Thibaut Courtois out injured after suffering an injury on international duty and Keylor Navas, Zidane elected to give Luca, Real's third-choice shot-stopper, his first La Liga appearance of the campaign. 

Real were made to work hard for their win, but they eventually managed to prevail courtesy of Karim Benzema's late strike, and Zidane was adamant that selecting 20-year-old Luca was the correct decision.
