Zinedine Zidane’s son Enzo marked his debut for Real Madrid with a goal in a 6-1 win over Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey at the Santiago Bernabeu. Zidane Jr needed only 18 minutes to get onto the scoresheet for the club that his legendary father ended his career with.

While this was Enzo's maiden appearance for the first team – he scored off his very first attempt – the 21-year-old has turned out on close to 50 occasions for Real’s reserve team.

Going into the second leg with a 7-1 away win, Real got off to a great start with Mariano Mejia scoring in the very first minute. Colombian captain James Rodriguez doubled the lead in the 23rd minute before Mejia added his second three minutes before the interval.

Leonesa pulled one back through YerayGonzalez, but had a mountain to climb with an aggregate deficit of 10-2.

Norwegian teenage sensation Martin Odegaard, who was signed by Real last year, made his full debut for the Los Blancos.

With his side in full control of the game, coach Zidane, who represented the Madrid club 227 times after his world record transfer from Juventus in 2001, decided to make a double change at the interval, bringing on Raphael Varane and Enzo for Dani Carvajal and Isco.

Mejia completed his hat-trick three minutes from time and an unfortunate Cesar Morgado own goal gave the scoreline a routish feel.
