Luka Jovic hasn’t had the beginning t0 his Real Madrid career he’d have wanted, starting just two of the eight La Liga games so far. He wasn’t called up for international duty with Serbia, and he’s yet to make any direct contribution in the 198 minutes he’s played so far.
His club being top of the table won’t help, but it appears he needs to be given a consistent chance to shine before they can see the best of him. He scored 17 goals in 25 starts for Eintracht Frankfurt, who finished seventh in the Bundesliga last season, so he’s a proven goalscorer – but fans haven’t had the opportunity to see that as yet.
Real Madrid’s official Twitter account posted a video of Jovic receiving an over-the-top ball from Isco and then cutting inside to finish into the bottom left corner. Madrid used the ‘bang’ emoji to express their appreciation for the finish and fans jumped into the replies to express their frustration that Zinedine Zidane isn’t giving him enough opportunities.

Zidane needs to play him in the starting XI more often, he was his former team’s goalscorer and is already great enough to play every game hard or easy

Jovic should be given a start against mallorca

Zidane is a fool for always favouring Benzema. Ofcourse Benzema has proved to be good but Jovic needs to be given a fair chance just like Rodrygo and Mariano

It hurts me not to see him play much

Who do you think should start up top against Mallorca after the international break?
