Real Madrid Plus One To Injury List As Marcelo Picks Up Musclular Injury

Real Madrid fans will have to wait with baited breath on news of Marcelo’s injury with the club set issue a statement as to the full extent of the trauma on Friday.

Recent test results have revealed that the 29-year-old damaged his left leg although Los Blancos have yet to confirm how long he will be sidelined for.

The timing could not have been any worse for a struggling Madrid side who are currently seven points off the pace and lost fellow left-back Theo Hernandez just days earlier at the Estadio Anoeta to a shoulder injury. It follows a dreadful September in which Karim Benzema was the first to fall, suffering a hamstring injury in their first week back following the international break against Levante.
