The two players have endured hard months under Santiago Solari since he replaced Julen Lopetegui in October.

"Nobody is going to take away what they have done here", Zidane said about his veteran players. They looked good to me, Isco got a goal.

"There will be changes in the summer, but at the moment I can not say more than that", Zidane told reporters.

Another victim, Haji Daoud Nabi, died trying to save a fellow worshiper, his son told an Australian newspaper. Aupito said festival organisers have contacted schools about the decision.

In his last game in charge of Real Madrid before he left past year, Zinedine Zidane would have Gareth Bale to thank for the two goals he scored against Liverpool in the UCL final.

The Frenchman's line-up showed he was serious as he brought back goalkeeper Keylor Navas, as well as Isco and Marcelo into the side.

Navas has been second choice for most of this season following Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' arrival from Chelsea, while Sergio Reguilon had condemned a seemingly disinterested Marcelo to the bench towards the end of Santiago Solari's ill-fated tenure. He was far away from his best shape but he fought and open the scoreboard in the second half after a ideal assist from Benzema.

"It's a new beginning", right back Alvaro Odriozola said. We have to stay focused on competing and not thinking about who is playing or who isn't.

Assuming Madrid have assured Zidane that the club will sign the players he wants this summer, we could finally see De Gea join Los Blancos for a fee of around £75 million. In the next 10 games left of the season, the goal is to be back and fight to be competitive.
