Marcelo once again enjoy a new opportunity to shine as we were used to. The absence of right-handed backs in the call forces Zidane to use Mendy on the right, so the Brazilian, noted in recent months for his poor performance, will start against Getafe on the left side. This season he has been in the eleven eight times, with a balance of two wins, five losses and a draw. In total it adds up to 752 minutes.
However, he is willing to change the dynamics. At 32, he has decided to start working with a new personal trainer with whom he has recovered his physical tone. Is about Adolfo Madrid, who also works with other first division players such as Marcos Llorente The Ibai Gomez. The ‘3’ has been losing several kilos for a couple of months, approaching his ideal weight. It is common to see him working at home through his social networks. Against him Huesca he had 23 minutes and took advantage of them. He was incisive and was about to score, as soon as he entered the field, with a good cross shot.
It will be your match 519 with the Real Madrid shirt, so he will be nine short of beating Roberto Carlos (528) as the second most capped foreign player in the club’s history. Further is Benzema (539) who, in addition to being active, is one of Zinedine Zidane’s untouchables.
