Marcelo: "We feel confident"

Real Madrid will be looking for a place in the last four of the Spanish Cup (Copa de Rey) when they play Valencia at Mestalla, and they have the advantage of a 2-0 lead from the first leg in the Santiago Bernabéu, a match where Marcelo made his return after being injured. The defender analysed the return leg for the Bwin website: “We always go all out to progress in every competition we play in. We feel confident because we are playing well and hopefully we will progress. We will do everything we can to progress. We know that if we make any mistakes we could be out of the competition, so it is far more exciting”.

Valencia has won the previous two Spanish Cup matches that it has played in its stadium this season. “We have to be careful of all their players. Valencia are strong and playing there is difficult, for the fans as well. There is not any particular player to watch, but instead the whole team should concern us”, he said about the match that will be played at Mestalla which is a special ground for the team: “I am sure it will bring us good memories as we won the Spanish Cup there”.

Marcelo, who has worked very hard since the surgery on the fifth metatarsal of his right foot in October, spoke about his return to the pitch against Valencia last week: “I felt very happy when I took to the pitch after being injured at the Bernabéu, there was a little film running in my mind and I felt very excited”.
