Real Madrid released the squad list for Wednesday's Champions League game against AS Roma in what will be the first leg of the Round of 16. Marcelo trained with the squad today and finally was able to make it into the list even though he dislocated his shoulder barely a week ago.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Arbeloa, Carvajal, Danilo, Marcelo and Nacho.
Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, James Rodríguez, Modric and Kovacic.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Jesé and Lucas Vázquez.

It's clear that Real Madrid needed Marcelo back as soon as possible, but this possibly means that they've rushed his recovery so that he could face Roma, a move that could be problematic down the road if he re-injures his shoulder.

Marcelo has been in great form this season and will definitely have a big impact on the team's performance with his creativity as soon as he steps on the pitch.
