Real Madrid endured a nightmare first half in the Supercopa de Espana semi-final against Athletic Club on Thursday evening, going 2-0 behind early on.

Things got worse at half time when Raphael Varane was forced off injured.

Zinedine Zidane sent Nacho Fernandez on in the Frenchman’s place.

Nacho had, fortunately, warmed up with intensity before the game as Sergio Ramos was unable to finish the warm-up due to muscular discomfort, but the captain did start nonetheless.

Eder Militao remained on the bench, confirming that he is bottom of the list of centre-backs in Zidane’s eyes.
