Marcelo: We need to look ahead to Sevilla game


Real Madrid left back Marcelo has called on his team mates to put the defeat to Barcelona behind them and focus on the next match against Sevilla.

Los Blancos lost 2-1 at the Nou Camp, but felt they were hard done by and should have had two penalties. Adriano appeared to handball inside the box, and shortly before Barcelona scored their second goal, Javier Mascherano hauled Cristiano Ronaldo down in the area.

Speaking to the press after the game, Marcelo admitted his team mates felt aggrieved, but added there was little that could be done.

“The goal was to win, but there are things that work against us that we can’t do anything about. In my opinion there were two blatant penalties. We know that something is always going to happen but there’s nothing we can do about it,” he stated.

The Brazil left back then urged his team to forget about the loss and look to the future and how they can close the gap on the league leaders.

He said: “We’re going to keep working with our heads held high and now we have to think about Sevilla and winning that game. We know that we’re Real Madrid and that we have to forge ahead.”
