Zidane legacy growing at Real

News

The 18-year-old, who joins the Real squad as the third-choice goalkeeper, is set to fill in for the injured Keylor Navas. Kiko Casilla, who last season made his debut for the club, is pencilled in to start.

Earlier in pre-season Zidane handed his other son, Enzo, a debut against Paris Saint-Germain. The 21-year-old has since been linked with a move to Middlesbrough in the Premier League.

It was earlier confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Pepe would play no part in Tuesday's clash for fitness or health reasons. This means it is likely that Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata will lead the attack. 

Zidane led Los Blancos to the Champions League title in his first season as manager last season. The elevation of his sons into the senior set-up appears to be another indication of how his legacy is growing with the Spanish giants.

Full Real Madrid Super Cup squad: Casilla, Yanez, Luca; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Danilo, Marcelo; James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Isco, Asensio, M. Llorente; Benzema, Lucas Vazquez, Morata, Mariano.
