Not yet sure what his plans are, but the French manager could hand Hugo Duro his dream debut against the Serie A giants tomorrow.

SunSport reports that players like Karim Benzema, Luka Jovic and Alvaro Odriozola are out for different reasons.

Benzema who has scored six goals in 11 games this campaign picked up a muscle injury, while 24-year-old Odriozola is also out for an unknown cause.

Meanwhile, Jovic would miss the game after testing positive for deadly coronavirus and all these issues forced Zidane to include B team star into the squad.

The 21-year-old forward only joined the club in the summer after making the breakthrough at boyhood club Getafe on-loan with an option to buy.

Duro has already grabbed three goals in four appearances for his youth side, and he could replicate this form against Inter if given the chance by the manager.
