Real Madrid

On August 22 2001, Zinedine Zidane made his Santiago Bernabeu debut against Real Zaragoza, where Los Blancos took the field for the second leg of the Spanish Supercup.

Real Madrid won 3 - 0, behind three goals from Raul, and lifted the trophy.

Zidane had actually made his official Real Madrid debut in the first leg of this tie which finished 1 - 1. Euan McTear wrote about that game just a few months ago.

From RealMadrid.com:

The return leg at the Santiago Bernabéu happened three days later and the team treated the home fans to a 3-0 win to get their hands on the trophy. The key man in that game was Raúl, who netted a hat-trick in the closing stages.
