Marcelo, portrayed

In the second stage of Zidane, with the Brazilian as the starter Madrid suffered eight defeats ... and none when he was a substitute. The cadista Salvi destroyed him and his level alarmed.


Madrid has a problem with Marcelo. The state of form of the Brazilian, clearly relegated to the substitution by Mendy is alarming. And the numbers point to you more than ever. In this second stage of Zidane, the white team lost in the League eight games of the 26 in which Marcelo started, but the data is much more relevant when he was not in the starting eleven: Madrid never lost. The team resents the veteran '12' white ... The last time, in this historic 0-1 against Cádiz that raises the level of panic to a week of the Classic.

The figures point you, but there is nothing more graphic than the images themselves. Cádiz's goal began in a more than passive, being generous, pressure from the Brazilian. He let the Cadista play begin with great ease.

The goal was only the outcome, the symptoms that Marcelo's band was going to be a bargain for Salvi and Cádiz was seen from minute 2. The first clear yellow chance, where Ramos scored a goal from Negredo under sticks, begins in the umpteenth defensive inattention of the Rio de Janeiro left-hander. It would not be the only one. Negredo's second warning, at 12 ', repeats the pattern. Ramos has to leave his area to try to reduce another defensive nonsense by Marcelo. In neither of the two plays does he even appear on the television plane ...

There were more numbers that question Marcelo's performance. He lost 18 balls, the most for Madrid against the Cervera team. It is a trend in crescendo. Last season he had 26 losses on February 6 (Real Sociedad) with 27 losses just ten days later against Celta. Upon returning from confinement, Mendy completely took over the left side.

Marcelo is becoming physically fragile (he has accumulated ten injuries since 2018-19) and he continues at Real Madrid only because the pandemic made the summer football market contract. As AS reported last month, he was about to leave, but his huge 32-year-old salary stopped Inter and Juventus in their tracks. During Real Madrid-Cádiz, Antonio Romero reported in Carrusel Deportivo that the full-back had a foot and a half in Vecchia Signora but the fact that Juve offered Douglas Costa as a bargaining chip and Madrid was not interested in bartering. The second captain, a living legend of Madrid, is an alarming situation in a white club that has let Reguilón and Achraf out this summer and where Zidane still does not dare to give the alternative to the castillista Miguel Gutiérrez, the three most desired of La Last years factory ...
