Marcelo Doesn’t Believe Clasico Will Decide La Liga Title Destination
Real Madrid left-back Marcelo has dismissed suggestions the upcoming Clasico encounter with Barcelona will be decisive in the La Liga title race.
Real Madrid and Barcelona face one another on March 22, with many expecting the winner to go on and win La Liga, but the Brazilian thinks otherwise Madrid are two points clear of their arch-rivals at the top of the division and face Luis Enrique’s side in a crunch meeting at Camp Nou on March 22.

Barca are the form team going into the game, with Carlo Ancelotti’s men stumbling in recent weeks, having drawn 1-1 with Villarreal last weekend. But, regardless of the result between sides in two weeks’ time, Marcelo believes there will still be more twists and turns ahead.
“It will be a key game, but so is Athletic and Levante,” he told O Globo. “I do not believe the Clasico will be decisive in the title race.”
