Isco substitution angers the Santiago Bernabeu



With the match against Athletic Club still tied 1-1 at the time, Real Madrid fans expressed their disapproval of Zinedine Zidane’s decision to take Isco Alarcon off the pitch.

The ex-Malaga star, who played at a high level on Sunday at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, was replaced by winger Lucas Vazquez after 64 minutes of play.

Despite their middling performance, Zidane elected to keep all three members of the BBC on the field.

Precisely, Cristiano Ronaldo was the target of some whistles in the first half when he squandered a good scoring opportunity by striking a shot straight at keeper Gorka Iraizoz.

Besides, Los Blancos defensive fragility also drew timid murmur from the crowd.

Madrid ended up defeating the Basque side thanks to a late goal by back-up striker Alvaro Morata.

The reigning Champions League winners are in sole possession of LaLiga’s top spot after Atletico Madrid were beaten by Sevilla earlier on Sunday.
