Zidane said it was Isco's best match with Madrid.
"Yes, we do have defense problems due to some circumstances, but we trust our squad, and we are preparing it for the upcoming games", explained Zidane.
Isco's fine individual effort and a towering header from Alvaro Morata ensured neither lead lasted more than a few minutes.
"I have always been clear - I want to stay at Real Madrid for many years", Isco said. I'm anxious about it because I don't like to see players out injured and all the more so during the run-in.
