Marcelo is almost at 100 per cent fitness in a boost to an out-of-form Real Madrid side. Brazil full-back Marcelo has not featured for Los Blancos since last month's 3-0 reverse at Sevilla due to a calf injury.

That defeat was the start of a four-match winless run in all competitions for Madrid in which it has failed to score. But Marcelo, who returned to training this week, could soon be back in the fold in welcome news for under-fire boss Julen Lopetegui.

"I feel fine, I'm almost at 100 per cent. I'm training well. It's the second day I trained with the ball, but I'm happy with my progress. The international break is good for me to be at the top for the next game," he said in quotes reported by AS .

Madrid will look to improve its fortunes at home to Levante on October 20 when LaLiga resumes.
