Isco and Gareth Bale celebrated their recalls to the starting line-up with second-half goals, while Keylor Navas and Marcelo returned from exile to impress.

Bale played a pivotal role in delivering Real a third straight Champions League title last May, but despite scoring twice in the final against Liverpool, it was the fact Zidane started him on the bench which saw the Welshman admit afterwards he may leave in search of regular first-team football. As quoted by the Daily Mail, Solskjaer said: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players".

Courtois was the biggest surprise, given he was bought by Madrid for around 40 million euros ($45 million) last summer and had established himself ahead of Navas under Santiago Solari.

"We want to think positively and defeat Celta tomorrow, I do not want to think about anything else, but the players are keen to show what they are worth". We have to respect everything the previous coach did, but Marcelo, in my eyes, is happy and eager to play, so I am happy with this.

It's unlikely that many of this side will be starting games - even playing for Madrid at all - next season, with a squad overhaul on the cards.

"The most important thing is I worked very hard to get an opportunity and today I got one".

"We have to look to the future, end this season with honour and try to win the remaining 10 games. That gives us chances to score goals, and we did".
