Real Madrid published the medical report on Marcelo's shoulder injury confirming that the left-back has a dislocated shoulder that will keep him out of the lineups for at least two weeks.

Marcelo will try to recover in time for Real Madrid's crucial home game against Atlético de Madrid -- February 27th -- as he is a crucial player for this team.

Zinedine Zidane will be forced to find a replacement even though Marcelo is the only pure left-back on the roster. Nacho Fernández, Álvaro Arbeloa and Danilo will most likely be the ones playing in the left side of the defensive line until Marcelo recovers from his injury.

In other news, Gareth Bale's presence in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Roma is still questionable, although it appeared that he could be ready to play that match when he picked up his calf injury several weeks ago.
