Marcelo continues recovery

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo has continued his recovery to full fitness by taking a full part once more in training today.

The Brazilian has been out of action since suffering a thigh strain whilst on international duty with Brazil at the start of September.

Whilst the 25-year-old returned to training almost 10 days ago and seen as in line for a return during last week, he failed to make the matchday squads against Elche and then Atletico Madrid.

However, Marcelo is seen as edging closer to full fitness today, having once more trained fully and normally with his teammates at Valdebebas.

Meanwhile, Xabi Alonso continued his individual recovery programme in training.
