Marcelo returns Real Madrid training ahead of Atalanta clash

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has returned to training following a calf problem and could be fit to face Atalanta in midweek.

Zinedine Zidane‘s side face the Serie A side in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on March 16.

Ferland Mendy‘s late goal secured a 1-0 win away in Italy in the first leg, and the French international is expected to keep his place in the starting team, with Marcelo on the bench, as per reports from Marca.
