Marcelo: Win over winner

Marcelo preferred to focus on Real Madrid picking up “three difficult points” against Valencia on Saturday over his late winner.

Marcelo struck with four minutes of normal time remaining to secure Madrid a 2-1 victory over Valencia and keep their La Liga title tilt on track.

“I’m happy to have won three difficult points,” the left-back told BeIN Sports after the game.

“A lot of people come to the Bernabeu wanting to frustrate us, but it’s normal that they want to beat Madrid.

“We gave our souls and showed all who we are. With our fans behind us, it’s hard [for other teams] to win here.

“We ran and fought to the death and got the three points, I’m happy for my goal but more so that it won the three points.

“We’re still standing and we’re going to fight to the death.

“If we want to win, we have to win all the games we have left, with patience and hard work.”
