Marcelo keen to face Barcelona

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo feels ‘in good shape’ but is unsure whether he will face Barcelona in Tuesday’s Copa del Rey clash.

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo feels ‘in good shape’ but is unsure whether he will face Barcelona in Tuesday’s Copa del Rey clash.

Marcelo, who played 57 minutes of Real’s 2-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday before being replaced by Sami Khedira, appeared reasonably positive about the club’s prospects this season and the extent of his involvement.

Jose Mourinho’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final.

“I’m in good shape and I’m feeling positive,” Marcelo told reporters.

“But it’s not me who decides whether or not I have to play.

“We have to play to win every game, and that gives us a good feeling. It feels as if we’re getting in the mood for some parties.”

Real trail Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga, but Marcelo spoke about the need for defiance within the side, particularly with Champions League and Copa del Rey fixtures on the horizon.

“This win (against Deportivo) lifts our spirits for the difficult matches that we face ahead,” he said.

“We’re going to take it one game at a time. We can never give in. While there are possibilities mathematically we have to fight to the end.”
