The Brazilian back threatened to miss tonight's game because he was drawn to help Madrid count votes for the regional elections.

Should Marcelo come in tonight, he will become the third Brazilian to reach the cape of a hundred Champions League appearances, after Roberto Carlos (120 CL ​​appearances) and Dani Alves (111).
