The Real Madrid third goalkeeper stirred up mixed reaction on social media with his inclusion in the starting XI against Huesca.

Zinedine Zidane's opted to start his son Luca Zidane in goal for Real Madrid in Sunday's encounter with Huesca and the French manager's decision was greeted with mixed reactions across his club's fan base.

With Thibaut Courtois out with injury, the youngster was handed his first start of the season against the bottom-placed visitors ahead of Keylor Navas. The latter, who was demoted to the bench during Santiago Solari's tenure, has been restored to the starting lineup since Zidane's arrival.

Nevertheless, the youngster was made to endure a nightmarish opening minutes in his second first-team appearance as Huesca took the lead three minutes after kick-off. 22 minutes later, parity was restored, thanks to Isco's strike.

Dani Ceballos then fired Los Blancos in front in the 62nd minute but the lead lasted for just 12 minutes as Xaber Etxeita subsequently grabbed the equalizer. A late Karim Benzema goal then ensured that all the three points stayed at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The decision to feature Luca Zidane in goal evidently came as a surprise for many as the 20-year-old failed to make a single first team appearance under both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari. Here is how some fans reacted to his inclusion on Sunday:
