Hugo Duro: Things to know about the Spanish striker

This season hasn’t exactly gone to plan for Zinedine Zidane and his Real Madrid side.

Los Blancos are unlikely to retain their La Liga crown and they’ve looked far from convincing in the Champions League. A lack of goals hasn’t helped their cause, with misfiring frontman Luka Jovic shipped out on loan and Eden Hazard failing to adequality support Karim Benzema.
