Luka Jovic is still yet to find the back of the net for Real Madrid after joining the club from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer.
Should Thibaut Courtois be dropped for Alphonse Areola?
The Serbian marksman has made seven appearances for Los Blancos this term, though only two of those have come from the start (per Transfermarkt).
The 21-year-old watched on from the substitutes’ bench for the entirety of Tuesday night’s clash against Club Brugge in the group stages of the Champions League – a match Real were lucky to draw 2-2 after finding themselves 2-0 down at half time.
Madrid have now failed to win either of their opening two fixtures in Europe, after finding themselves humiliated 3-0 by PSG a fortnight ago.
Jovic will be eager to get off the mark for his new side when the club welcome La Liga newcomers Granada to the Bernabeu this weekend, and judging by this video of him emphatically finding the back of the net in training earlier this week, manager Zinedine Zidane may want to consider playing the Serbia international.
Here’s how Los Blancos fans reacted to that thunderous strike on Twitter; they’re clearly keen to see more of their new frontman…

Had enough of seeing his training videos. It would help if he actually got more minutes.
