Marcelo lost his place due to the bad display against Barcelona

Marcelo's poor performance seems to have been the reason for his continuous podium.

Particularly since the turn of the year, Marcelo can now be considered a substitute in the current Real Madrid side.

Santiago Solari took charge of the team in late October, following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui after the 5-1 defeat against Barcelona.

As soon as the Brazilian physically recovered (he picked up an injury in the last game with Lopetegui) the Argentine deployed the left-back further forward on the wing.

The coach believed that Marcelo needed minutes and confidence and gave him matches when he would not be worked as much defensively.

But now things have changed.

Solari has looked for Marcelo to return to his best form but, little by little, he has been underwhelmed by what he has witnessed.

The consequence has been that he lost his place in the side to Sergio Reguilon in LaLiga Santander.

Despite that, Marcelo continued to get minutes under his belt, notably in the Copa del Rey.

Improvements were not forthcoming but the tactician attempted to give him one more chance, in the first leg of the Copa semi-final at the Camp Nou.

"He's the best full-back of the last decade, he deserved it," said Solari and his teammates were in agreement.

The performance of the full-back in that game against Barcelona was not up to the level of the rest of the players in the team and the coach did not like what he saw at all.

After El Clasico, the next two games were against Atletico and Ajax and Solari decided to show everyone that his starting left-back on a regular basis is now undoubtedly Reguilon.

Everything does suggest that, against Girona, Marcelo will get another chance to show what he can do, unless there is a last minute change.

It is curious but there is nobody who can truly question the youth product's displays and argue that he is not in the team on merit.

Solari now has 25 matches under his belt as coach of Real Madrid and Marcelo has played in 13 of them, although he has suffered two muscle injuries during that time.

Those problems have been additional obstacles for the Brazilian to overcome but the time has come for him to rectify the situation and get back on track.
