Real madrid Breaking news : Marcelo showed why he’s been dropped
A definitive blow in the LaLiga Santander title race for Real Madrid came on Sunday afternoon in what should have been a straightforward match against Girona.
All of the merit of the fine form over the past month has been forgotten after the 2-1 defeat, with Marcelo to a great extent to fault and Gareth Bale whistled not long after going ahead as a substitute.
Santiago Solari made changes for the game, but the real rest came in the minds of the players after going 1-0 up as they assumed that the match had just been won.
Eusebio Sacristan’s side took advantage, turning the game around completely by appearing own concentration and assurance.
Girona equalised from the penalty spot and sent two clear warnings before scoring a winner, starting numerous fans to leave the Santiago Bernabeu early, having seen enough.
It opens up a new raft of doubts for Madrid with many players letting opportunities slip as they let the title disappear with this thrashing.
If one thing was clear it was why Marcelo is not starting as Eusebio’s side targeted him and Portu rang rings around the Brazilian.
