After 7 years.. Marcelo admits that he cooperated with Ronaldo in a “sports theft” before Real Madrid won the Champions League

Brazil – Former Brazilian left-back Marcelo admitted to giving his former Real Madrid teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, an assist from which he scored an illegal goal for Real Madrid seven years ago in the Champions League.

During his guest appearance on the “PodPah” podcast, Marcelo recalled memories of the confrontation between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the 2016-2017 season, where the first leg in the “Allianz Arena” ended with Real’s victory (2-1), before repeating its victory. The second leg was difficult (4-2) after extra time, a result that the Brazilian star doubted.

In that controversial match, regular time ended with Bayern leading 2-1 (the same score with which Real Madrid won the first leg), so the two teams decided for two additional periods, with Marcelo making the third goal for Ronaldo.

Bayern’s players protested strongly against the referee after awarding that goal because it was offside, before Marco Asensio added the fourth goal for Real Madrid and eliminated the Bavarian team’s dreams of returning the result.

Commenting on what happened in the Bayern match, Marcelo said that Real Madrid’s third goal, in which he provided the assist himself to his teammate Ronaldo, should have been disallowed due to offside.

He added, laughing: “The goal was clearly offside, but the person affected must go and complain now. I knew the goal was incorrect.”

He continued: “I said to myself: Oh my God, then I looked at the assistant referee, and I was surprised that he was running towards the midfield scoring the goal, and here I breathed a sigh of relief. I could have shot, but when you see Cristiano Ronaldo next to you, things change a lot and you pass to him without realizing it.”
