The game had to be delayed for 30 minutes as stranded fans made their way into the stadium.

Zidane won the UEFA Champions League three times as a coach with Los Blancos and once as a player in the 2002 final against Bayer Leverkusen.

Ronaldinho, another UEFA Champions League winner, won the prestigious tournament in France 16 years ago.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that twenty years after his magnificent winner in the UEFA Champions League against Bayer Leverkusen, former Real Madrid midfielder Zinedine Zidane has no words to describe the feeling as he looks back to that day.

Zidane on a quick spin met a cross from Roberto Carlos before half volleying it home for the winner as Real Madrid won the title against the German club.

In a video posted on social media, the legendary footballer said 'it was written' and that goal remains one of his best.
