He did not face Chelsea.

Isco Alarcón has recovered from the knock he picked up before Real's second friendly against Chelsea. Zinedine Zidane decided to keep him out of the team for that match in order to have him fully ready in the UEFA Super Cup, knowing that he is a very important player now that Kroos, Modric and James still have to improve their condition.

Apparently, Isco will be good to go against Bayern Munich, so he should make Real's starting XI in the decisive UEFA Super Cup Final against Sevilla, which will be Madrid's first chance of winning a title this season.

On the other hand, Karim Benzema is still questionable for the two games ahead with a hip injury that could be problematic down the road if he doesn't take care of it properly. Zidane will have to make some tough decisions about his offensive line if the Frenchman can't play before the Super Cup.
