Marcelo beat Messi with a “high-class” ball:
Marcelo’s level is shown in the ball that blocked Lionel Messi in the second half of the super classic match that took place on the morning of 2/3.
Marcelo is said to have the “best save of the day” situation when he successfully blocked the ball to stop Messi. If the 31-year-old Brazilian defender did not appear in time, the goal of Real Madrid was put in danger, because everyone knows how dangerous Leo is.
After blocking the number 10 on the Barca side, Marcelo celebrated excitedly. His actions just like himself have just scored an important goal. The level of defense of Marcelo shows great determination in this player. It also became a message to coach Zinedine Zidane on the sidelines.

Many people still think that Marcelo is out of time because he is no longer sure of the defense. In the 1-2 defeat of Real against Man City in the 1/8 Champions League round, Mendy won the main kick from Marcelo.
But to the super classic, coach Zidane put his faith in Marcelo, and the Samba defender did not disappoint the French teacher. Witnessing the Brazilian star makes a great tackling, the online community praised the defender.
