Marcelo had eight crosses, three key passes, five tackles and one clearance during Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Getafe on Sunday.

While he continues to account for plenty of crosses, Marcelo is mostly dependent on his clean sheets to provide much fantasy value. He hasn't scored in 16 La Liga starts, and he has only four assists, with his last one coming Dec. 6 against Celta Vigo.

Marcelo was struck with an own goal during Brazil's 3-1 win over Croatia in the opening match of the World Cup on Thursday.

Marcelo's goal was the only score for Croatia, who managed only three shots on the day. It was an unfortunate occurrence for an elite defender, who should have an easier time against Mexico and Cameroon.

Marcelo finished Real Madrid's 3-0 victory over Sporting Gijon with the final kick of the game, slotting home a goal in the top corner.
