Zinedine Zidane may have watched his Real Madrid side record a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night, but it came at a slightly embarrassing price for the Frenchman.

With Los Blancos already 3-0 up, but not yet safely through to the Champions League semi-finals, Zidane theatrically span around after Karim Benzema missed an opportunity to put the result beyond doubt.

It was a laugh out loud moment for those eagle-eyed viewers who spotted the wardrobe malfunction. But don’t worry if you missed it, simply scroll down this page to watch the video and revel in Zizou’s embarrassment.

Zidane will not have cared about his trousers - or any item of clothing, for that matter - after his side recorded a 3-0 win over their German opponents to seal their place in the final four.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals in as many minutes in the first half to level the aggregate score and then completed his hat-trick with a free-kick with 13 minutes left on the clock.

And here's the Benzema miss that led to Zidane's spin...

Don't worry, Zizou, Pep Guardiola once did the same...

Zidane: We must remain calm

"In football you always suffer," Zidane was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper Marca after the match. "We must remain calm and not go too crazy.

"I always kept my feet on the ground as a player and I will do the same as a coach. I know how difficult this is to do, but we must keep focused as there will be more tough games in the future."

Zidane hails Ronaldo

Zidane also reserved special praise for Ronaldo, who notched his 37th hat-trick for Real Madrid.

"What can I say about Cristiano Ronaldo?" the French coach added. "He demonstrated who he is as a footballer and that is that he is the best player in the world.

"He truly is a special player. Cristiano needs the team and even he will admit that. But at the end of the day he truly is special as not everyone can find the back of the net three times in such a big match."

Zidane could finish season on a high

By qualifying for the semi-finals, Zidane has boosted his chances of staying in charge of Real Madrid’s first team beyond this summer.

Following last week’s humiliating defeat away to Wolfsburg, speculation was rife that Zidane could be dismissed at the end of the season by Florentino Perez if Los Blancos failed to make the final four.

However, there’s now a chance that the inexperienced manager could finish the season as a Champions League-winning coach.
