In a scene reminiscent of his father's famous dismissal in the 2006 World Cup final, the young Zidane took exception to the Atletico player, nudging him with the head and then following up by getting involved in the mass brawl that then took place.

The Blancos' day went from bad to worse as Atleti eventually triumphed 4-2, cementing their position at the top of the under-17 table, with the young Zidane watching on from the sidelines.

Luca is not the only Zidane offspring plying his trade in the Real youth teams, though, with Theo and Elyaz in the academy and Enzo captaining the Castilla side.
