Sporting Gijon 2 Real Madrid 3: Isco double rescues Zidane & co. [Best Tweets]

Real Madrid took another step towards La Liga glory after a double from Isco ensured a comeback to beat Sporting Gijon by 3 goals to 2.

Zinedine Zidane took the bold decision to rest Ronaldo and Benzema while Bale was nursing an injury – meaning the entire BBC was unavailable for the game. The Frenchman chose to rest his faith in the players who are currently in the shadow of the aforementioned trio.

Despite getting off to a rocky start, goals from Isco and Alvaro Morata ensured a win for Real Madrid, enabling them to keep the lead at the top of the La Liga Santander. The game looked to be heading towards a draw when Isco scored a 91st minute winner to rescue his side.

The Spaniard was undoubtedly the star of the night and he was hailed on Twitter for his goals – the first one being a thing of beauty while the other one rescuing his team.

However, Isco wasn’t the only one earning plaudits. Zidane also earned praises from the fans for being bold in his decisions.
