Who needs Gareth Bale?!
Isco made his mark in a sensational La Liga debut for Real Madrid on Sunday night as the Spain Under-21 playmaker starred in the 2-1 victory over Real Betis.
The former Malaga schemer assisted Real Madrid’s opener for Karim Benzema before heading home Marcelo’s curling left wing cross to secure all three points with just a few minutes remaining.
In a two-horse race, where draws feel like defeats, Isco’s winner could be one of the most important goals scored for Real Madrid in 2013/2014.
After claiming the winner, Isco then showed off his incredibly quick feet with some great skill by the touchline as he stuck the ball between the legs of two Real Betis opponents.
