The 21-year-old midfielder, who has been at Real Madrid since 2004, scored in the 6-1 Copa del Rey victory over Cultural Leonesa ten years after his father, Zinedine Zidane, last played for the club.

Enzo, a 50th-minute substitute, scored with his first shot, playing a one-two with Casemiro before cutting inside a guiding the ball home.

Seventeen-year-old Norwegian Martin Odegaard made his first start as Real wore T-shirts paying tribute to the victims of the Colombia plane crash for their warm-up.

Real, unbeaten for 32 games in all competitions, meet Barcelona on Saturday in the first El Clasico on the season, six points clear at the top of La Liga.
