Marcelo leaves the polling station in Madrid, will play against Chelsea


Marcelo left the polling station in Madrid in time to play for Real against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night.

As the Guardian reported earlier this week, the Brazilian left-back has been selected to oversee the polling station for local elections, threatening his participation in Real Madrid’s second match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Marcelo would not have been called up against the Blues if Zinedine Zidane had a fully fit and accessible squad at his disposal, but Ferland Mandy remained injured for Los Blancos.

Fortunately for Zidane, it seems that Marcelo will be able to play tomorrow night.
