After Hazard, another major Madrid player set to miss Elclassico
Marcelo set to miss Espanyol and Valencia clashes, doubtful for Elclassico
Real Madrid injury problems are piling up ahead of a tough run of fixtures with the update that Marcelo has picked up a calf injury and will miss the Liga fixtures against Espanyol and Valencia and doubt for the Clásico against the champions Barcelona in Camp Nou on 18 December.
The Brazilian player has a history of quick recovery from injury due to his habit of not taking any risks with muscular injuries.
Marcelo is set to have three-week layoff puting in mind that he could return earlier, but he is still a serious doubt for the Clásico.
