Zinedine Zidane, the manager of Real Madrid, is considering a surprise lineup for tonight’s Champions League quarterfinal first leg against Liverpool.
According to Marca, the Frenchman is considering including defender Marcelo in his starting lineup for the match.
The Brazilian has only played 10 times in La Liga and European competition this season, having lost his starting left-back position to Ferland Mendy.
Real Madrid will be without three key defenders for this match, with Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, and Dani Carvajal among those who will miss out.
It’s unclear how Marcelo would fit in with Mendy in any XI, but Madrid could switch to a three-man defense with two wing-backs.
Since joining Madrid from Fluminense in January 2007, Marcelo has played in 520 games for the club and has established himself as a club legend in the 14 years since.
With Madrid, the 32-year-old left-back has won 22 trophies, including five league titles and four Champions League titles.
