Real Madrid faced that prospect against Chelsea next week with Marcelo, as it was reported that he was set to miss the second leg because he had been called up for polling duty in Madrid on that day.

He’s a player that Zidane likes to rely on and Ferland Mendy has had various injury issues recently so he’s not guaranteed to be fit, so it’s no surprise that Real were trying to apply some pressure to get this overturned.

That report also lists Mendy as a doubt so that makes that news even more important, so Real go into the game knowing they have at least one senior option for the left hand side of the defence.
