Marcelo and the Real Madrid back line held Sociedad scoreless in Sunday's 3-0 win. Marcelo finished with one shot and two successful tackles.

It wasn't the greatest opener for Marcelo, but his position is fairly stable at left back. With better health this season, the Madrid back line could secure more clean sheets.

Liga MX: Saturday Cheat Sheet

Chris Henne spent plenty of time during the last tournament talking about how overpriced Andre-Pierre Gignac was, but he's now flipping the script and ready to pay up for the Tigres attacker.

Marcelo: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

May 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo secured five interceptions, put in four crosses and landed a shot on goal during Saturday's Champions League final victory over Atletico.

The fullback was a constant presence in the attacking third for all 120 minutes, and he stepped up to bury a penalty as Los Blancos won with a brilliant shootout performance. Marcelo, who had another fine season, is set to remain at the club for four more years and will be one of the first names on the team sheet in 2016/17. His involvement with the Brazilian national team this summer could delay his return a bit at club level, however.

March 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo won seven tackles, secured three interceptions and put in eight crosses during Sunday's 4-0 win over Sevilla.

The fullback didn't make it onto the scoresheet, but he was excellent at both ends of the pitch in helping his side secure three points. Marcelo had been uncharacteristically quiet on offense in previous matches, so it was a welcome sign to see him more involved Sunday. Marcelo and company will face a tough task following the upcoming international break, with Barcelona next up on the schedule.

February 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo won two tackles, put in four crosses and earned an assist off of two key passes in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Roma.

It was a superb all-around effort in Marcelo's return from a brief absence, as he contributed to a clean sheet while assisting on the eventual game-winning goal with a through pass that set Cristiano Ronaldo loose. Marcelo also came close on an improvised volleyed effort, illustrating the type of attacking prowess from the back that makes him an excellent fantasy option. He will likely stick in the lineup this Sunday against Malaga.

January 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marcelo swung in two crosses, made four key passes, secured three intereptions and attempted a pair of shots in Saturday's 5-0 win over Deportivo.

The 27-year-old put in a strong shift during the dominant victory, doing a little bit of everything for new manager Zinedine Zidane. Marcelo's propensity for getting forward combined with Real Madrid's general dominance makes him an elite fantasy option, and Saturday was a strong representation of what he is capable of most weeks. More of the same should be expected from Marcelo in Sunday's home matchup versus relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon.
