The left-back has made it clear that the Champions League holders will keep fighting for the title right until the very end, regardless of Sunday’s defeat at Camp Nou
Real Madrid defender Marcelo has stressed that the Santiago Bernabeu side refuse to throw in the towel in the race for the Liga title irrespective of their 2-1 loss against Barcelona on Sunday.
Goals from Jeremy Mathieu and Luis Suarez either side of a Cristiano Ronaldo strike gave the Blaugrana the points in a tense affair at Camp Nou.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are now four points behind the Catalans in the table, but Marcelo has made it clear they will keep fighting to catch their rivals again right until the end.
“We are never going to give in, we are going to keep battling and be aware of our faults so that we do not make them again,” Marcelo told the official Madrid website.
“Now we do not depend on ourselves and it is more difficult, but we are going to fight on until the end.
“We played better in some parts of the game and we had more possession than Barcelona in the first half and at the beginning of the second half, but in the end they were better.
“It was a key game where we could have gone ahead of them, but there are games left and we are going to keep fighting.”
Madrid resume La Liga action at home against Granada on April 5.
