Marcelo had a clean sheet as Real Madrid defeated Espanyol 6-0 Saturday.

Marcelo kept his third straight clean sheet Saturday and Real are still yet to concede this season. The Brazilian played the full 90 minutes at right-back and made some decent tackles to break up Espanyol's play. He wasn't particularly dynamic going forward but will comfortably keep his place in the side on this showing.

Marcelo had a clean sheet as Real Madrid defeated Real Betis 5-0 Saturday.

Real was faced with newly-promoted opposition for the second game running and the defense was successful in shutting out the opposition once again. Marcelo played the full 90 minutes in that defense, breaking-up attacks from the left wing and forming an unusually very solid-looking Real Madrid backline. Furthermore the Brazilian produced six crosses as Real Madrid strolled to a very comfortable win.

Marcelo began the La Liga season with a clean sheet as Real tied 0-0 Sunday with Sporting Gijon.

Gijon had no shots on target all game thanks to a sturdy defense composed of Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane ad Danilo. Marcelo was also given opportunity to go foward on several occasions but none of his four crosses could be converted. The biggest chance then actually fell to the Brazilian himself but his late diving header was sent over the bar.

Marcel netted Saturday as Real Madrid beat Getafe 7-3.

Marcelo scored in the last minute of the game to seal another huge Real win. He slid in to finish Jese's pinpoint cross and score just his second league goal of the season. He also produced a game-high number of eight crosses and was superb offensively throughout. The Brazilian perhaps neglected the defensive side of his game as a consequence, conceding three in the first 42 minutes.
