Marcelo has accused True Madrid of failing to implement their game plans following their 3-3 draw with Las Palmas on Wednesday.
Isco put Madrid ahead at the Santiago Bernabeu but Tana netted a quick-fire equaliser, and ambitions from Jonathan Viera and Kevin-Prince Boateng turned the match on its head soon after Gareth Bale had been sent off.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in 3 minutes in the closing stages to rescue a point for Zinedine Zidane’s side, but the outcome was not enough to view them retake best spot from Barcelona, who had earlier thrashed Sporting Gijon 6-1.
Madrid nonetheless have a game in hand that could send them back to the summit but Marcelo has admitted that they must make huge improvements if they may be to finish a five-year wait for the title.
“It was tough as soon as much more. We’ve to improve a lot of factors and we’ll continue to appear forward,” he told Movistar+.
“Before the games, we speak about things that we then do not do then this can be what occurs.
“Las Palmas have excellent players. In the finish we drew the game, I don’t understand how. It really is really challenging.”
Bale was dismissed two minutes into the second half, the Wales star selecting up a booking for any petulant kick at Viera just before getting shown an additional yellow card for shoving the midfielder towards the floor.
It was Bale’s very first red card given that joining the European champions in 2013 and Marcelo claimed it was not his location to criticise the forward in public.
“I’m not the one particular who has to provide a telling-off,” the Brazil full-back said. “Bale is old sufficient to understand what he has to accomplish and whether or not he’s wrong.”
