Real Madrid - Sevilla

Marcelo: 300 competitive appearances for Real Madrid

NEWS | 04/02/2015 | Alberto Navarro

"Since I arrived, it's been a dream to pull on the shirt of the best club in the world and I'm extremely happy to stay here."
He joined Real Madrid at 18 and, now in his ninth season at the club, Marcelo reached 300 competitive games for the Whites against Sevilla. A total reserved for just two other players in the current squad: Casillas and Ramos. The breakdown of his figures is: 217 matches in La Liga, 51 in the European Cup, 23 in the Copa del Rey, 6 in the Spanish Super Cup, 2 in the Club World Cup and 1 in the European Super Cup.

Marcelo has scored 20 goals and has a win percentage of 72%, having picked up 215 victories. At the end of the match, Florentino Pérez presented him with a commemorative shirt bearing the number 300 on the Bernabéu pitch. The Brazilian expressed his delight at reaching the mark: "I'm happy with the win and getting to 300 games for Real Madrid. Since I arrived, it's been a dream to pull on the shirt of the best club in the world. I'm extremely happy to stay here."

Hard-fought victory
"Sevilla are a top side and to beat them you have to come through difficulties. It was a strange match, we scored the first goal when they were putting on a lot of pressure up front. We produced a really good reaction in the end."

Every team that comes to play here gives its all to win and there are no easy games.

"Ramos and James are big losses but we have a great squad and can play any game without fear. Today we saw Nacho, who put in a great performance, or Varane. Now we're going to focus on Atlético, which will be another really tough game. They are in really good shape and we're going to go there to try to win."

Fifth booking
"I didn't touch him and it isn't a foul. Everyone saw that I didn't touch him, but you have to play every match with intensity, as if it were your last, I don't think about any other game."

Fourth highest foreign La Liga appearance-maker
Against Real Sociedad on Saturday, Marcelo featured in his 216th match in La Liga, overtaking the German Stielike to become the club's fourth highest foreign appearance-maker in the Spanish top flight. Ahead of him are three legends: Roberto Carlos (370), Di Stéfano (282) and Santamaría (226).

In competitive games in all competitions for Real Madrid, the Brazilian is fifth on the list of foreign players, behind Stielike (308), Santamaría (336), Di Stéfano (396) and Roberto Carlos (527).
