Real Madrid's only left-back might be injured. The Brazilian defender was in pain while laying down on the pitch after the final whistle and the first medical explorations indicate that he probably suffered a dislocated shoulder that could keep him out of the team's lineup for a few weeks.

The club still has to publish a medical report on Marcelo and they will most likely do that soon once Marcelo gets an MRI on that shoulder.

Marcelo has been a crucial player for Real Madrid this season and he's the only pure left-back on the roster. His creativity with the ball is very valuable for the team's offensive system and Real will need him to recover as soon as possible as the crucial moment of the season rapidly approaches.

If he has to miss some games, expect Nacho to replace Marcelo if Zidane doesn't decide to start either Carvajal or Danilo on the left wing.
