Madrid Miss Marcelo In El Classico....

Marcelo has admitted that he knew before Real Madrid's defeat by Sevilla that if he was booked then he would be suspended for el Clásico against Barcelona next weekend.

Marcelo Sad About Missing El Clásico
The Brazilian had already received four yellow cards this term and was shown his fifth when he fouled Jesús Navas midway through the first half of Los Merengues' 4-3 home defeat on Sunday evening.

Real Madrid already have defensive problems with injuries and Marcelo is unhappy that he will not be able to be of assistance in Camp Nou for, argubaly, the biggest game of the season so far.

"I knew before the game that I could not afford to be shown another yellow card," he explained. "I will not miss a very important game that everyone wants to play in," he told Marca.

"I am sad, but not only for me, but also because I will not be able to help my team-mates."

Marcelo then looked to blame the referee for Real Madrid's defeat against Sevilla and thinks that the matchday official should have awarded the hosts two spot-kicks.

"The referee did not whistle for two clear penalties that could have been given and, in fact, the three points would have been ours," he explained.

Madrid's reverse against Sevilla meant that they allowed Barça to move nine points clear after the Catalans' win on Saturday and knows that is a substantial gap.

"It is a lot. But we have to think about ourselves and work to improve and not give away any more points," he added.
