Goals from Isco and Casemiro earned the visitors three points at La Rosaleda, bringing up a landmark victory for the French coach

Zinedine Zidane brought up 100 wins in all competitions as Real Madrid coach with a 2-1 La Liga victory at Malaga on Sunday.

Madrid moved above Valencia into third place in the table after Isco scored a free-kick and set up Casemiro against his old club.

The former Madrid midfielder could yet lead his side to Champions League glory for the third season in a row, although the La Liga title they won last term looks certain to go to rivals Barcelona this year.

Zidane's 100 victories give the Frenchman a win ratio of 71.4 per cent in his first senior role as a manager.

The win was Madrid's fifth in their last sixth Liga outings, with only Atletico Madrid denying Zidane victory with a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu last week. 

The Merengue currently four points shy of their neighbours in the battle for second place, with Barcelona a further 11 points clear at the summit with just six games remaining in the season.
