Marcelo scored the third goal in Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain, but he did so much more than that, turning in a performance which has led MARCA readers to vote him their man of the match.
After suffering an early injury, he shrugged it off and went to work.
In MARCA In English’s post-match poll, he was voted number one and had received 2,200 thousand votes by midday on Thursday.
That put him just ahead of super substitute Marco Asensio and two-goal hero Cristiano Ronaldo, who rounded off the podium in that order.
Almost every player’s performance was applauded by the fans, with only Casemiro and Karim Benzema receiving more thumbs down than thumbs up.
