Real Madrid may have to do without defender Marcelo in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League. The Brazilian was drawn to help out in Madrid’s city council election next Tuesday.
On the same day, however, Los Blancos set out for London to start live on Wednesday (from 9:00 p.m.) DAZN) to compete at Chelsea FC.
Real around national player Toni Kroos did not get more than 1: 1 (1: 1) against Thomas Tuchel’s team in the first leg. The Madrilenians now hope to be able to relieve Marcelo of his civil duties. The authorities have not yet given official confirmation of the club’s request.
According to regulations, election workers can be excused for professional reasons if they perform essential services for the community, for example in health care, during this period. If Marcelo cannot avoid his service, he could alternatively fly to London separately on the day of the second leg so that he can join the team in good time.
