Marcelo: We must rest and prepare well for Clasico


Marcelo has said his fellow Real Madrid team mates must rest after the 3-0 over Liverpool and then prepare well for the match against Barcelona on Saturday.

The Brazilian left-back played his part in the win at Anfield, helping Los Blancos secure a clean sheet. The three points helped the 10-time Champions League winners take a giant stride towards the knock-out round.

And speaking to journalists afterwards, Marcelo said the team needed to rest after a top quality performance. He added they would have to recover quickly and prepare well for a huge match on Saturday evening.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men take on Los Cules at the Santiago Bernabeu looking for a win that would cut the gap at the top of La Liga to just one point. Los Blancos have won their past eight matches in all competitions but lost ground in La Liga early on after losing two of their first three matches.

Talking to reporters, Marcelo stated: “We’re fine. But we know that playing against Barcelona is difficult, it is a match that everyone wants to play in. We have to rest on the days we can and train in the time we have. It will not be an easy match.”
