Zidane returns to the pitch that saw him score a goal against Spain at Euro 2000

Real Madrid will host Club Brugge on Wednesday evening in the final round of the Champions League group stage.

The Real Madrid coach returns to the pitch that saw France beat Spain in the 2000 Euro 2000, organized by the Netherlands and Belgium.

On 25 June 2000, Spain played against France in the quarter-finals of the Euro at King Baudouin Stadium to ensure the Dukes won two goals for a goal from which Zinedine Zidane scored the goal from a free kick in the 33rd minute.

Gaizka Mendieta scored the equalizer from the 38th minute but Youri Djorkaeff scored the winning goal a minute before Patrick Vieira's first half.

Spain invited the competition from the quarter-finals to make the stadium a witness to the bad memory of the Spanish national team but it was good news for Zidane, who continued in the tournament and the maximum of Portugal from the semi-finals to be crowned the title after beating Italy in the final.

After the match, Zidane went to calm Raúl as he exchanged the shirt with Pep Guardiola and came out celebrating the victory.

Zidane won the Euro with France as well as the World Cup as he reached the final of the 2006 World Cup and lost the tournament to Italy.

Spain returned to the championships with euro 2008, the World Cup in 2010 and the 2012 Euro 2012.

Is the stadium witnessing a new joy for Zidane in his team's penultimate test of the Clásico or will the Spaniards come out with a defeat that grieves them as happened in the Euro?
