Netease Sports reported on October 1:
1-0 small win at Real Madrid
Looking at the data, you can understand how bad Marcelo's performance is on the defensive end. Marcelo had two tackles in full play, and all other defensive statistics were 0. Marcelo did not intercept, did not clear, did not block the shot, he actually contributed 1 foul. Ramos “wiped his butt” for Marcelo and was exhausted, and the Real Madrid captain contributed a team-high 7 clearances.
At that time, Valladolid players dribbled the ball in the middle and attackers on both sides followed. Ramos confronted the ball-handler head-on, while Marcelo and Varane defended the opponent's off-ball players on both sides.
In this defense, the position of the three Real Madrid defensive players is actually quite good. But Marcelo suddenly left the defensive position, and he slipped away from the ball holder. Marcelo did not interfere with the ball holder at all, but Ramos had to face a one-on-two dilemma. Ramos has to prevent the ball-handler from shooting, but also to block the ball-handler's pass to the Marcelo defense zone. Marcelo's wrong sliding tackle gave the ball-holder a chance to shoot directly. Fortunately, Courtois made a great move.
If this inexplicable sliding tackle is a problem of Marcelo's defensive ability, the scene at 73 minutes can reflect the problem of Marcelo's defensive attitude. The opposing player got the ball at the top of the arc and Marcelo was seven or eight meters away from the ball. Marcelo did not have the opponent player, but the Brazilian did not rush forward to interfere with the opponent's shot, nor did he recover the penalty area immediately after the opponent's shot to protect the second spot. Marcelo's choice was to dodge the ball when the opponent shot, and then froze for two seconds after Courtois made a save. In this defense, Marcelo is completely a spectator.
Don't use the suspect, don't use it, this is vividly reflected in Zidane. Marcelo has fallen sharply in recent years, and he has become a substitute for Reggie in the Solari era. But Zidane kept Marcelo after taking office, but expelled Reggie from the team. If Zidane blocked Bell because of the Welshman’s attitude problem, then Marcelo亚博最新版在线登录’s attitude problem in defense is also very prominent, but the Brazilian still has the unconditional trust of the French coach...
