Real Madrid have confirmed that Marcelo will not play a part in a Champions League clash at Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday after sustaining a neck injury.
The Brazil international appeared to suffer the issue in the first half of a 3-2 victory over Levante on Saturday, falling straight onto his back after attempting a shot at goal.
The 31-year-old completed the match, but Madrid have announced on Monday afternoon that he will be unavailable for the trip to France.
The club released an official statement on their website, which reads: “After the tests carried out today to our player Marcelo by the Real Madrid Medical Services he has been diagnosed with post-traumatic cervicodorsalgia. Pending evolution.”
Marcelo joins Isco, Luka Modric and Marco Asensio on the treatment table, with Zinedine Zidane facing an injury crisis at Santiago Bernabeu.
