Marcelo has returned to training with Real Madrid, providing Zinedine Zidane a fitness boost ahead of next week’s Champions League last-16 trip to Paris Saint-Germain.
The left-back was a doubt for the game after suffering a hamstring injury during a La Liga match against Real Betis last month.
But the Brazilian was back in training for Madrid on Thursday, giving the 29-year-old a chance of facing PSG at the Parc des Princes on 6 March.
Marcelo scored Madrid’s last goal in a 3-1 defeat of PSG in the opening leg.
PSG coach Unai Emery is set to be without star man Neymar due to a foot injury.
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are on the sidelines for Madrid as the midfielders are out of action with hamstring and knee injuries respectively.
