Marcelo Admits To Handball Against Bayern

Real Madrid defender Marcelo Admits To Handball Against Bayern Munich

By Keegan Kruger - May 02, 2018 10:33 AM @KeeganKruger

Real Madrid stalwart Marcelo admits that Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich should have been awarded a penalty during Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League second leg semi-final.

Ramos Takes Aim At Critics After Reaching Third Successive UCL Final

The Brazilian was involved in a controversial moment in the match as he blocked a shot from Joshua Kimmich with his arm in the 18-yard box just before half-time with the game evenly poised at 1-1.

After the game, the full back told the media that he believed the decision should have gone against him, but he didn’t want to elaborate too much on it.

"It’s a handball, it hit me on the hand, and I think it’s a penalty," Marcelo said, as quoted by Sport.

"If I say it didn’t hit me, I’d be lying, but football is like that.

"I don’t talk about referees, but it’s clear that sometimes they make decisions in your favour and other times against you, but whatever happens, you have to play football.”

The 29-year-old also took the opportunity to praise his teammate Karim Benzema, who ended up finding the back of the net twice.

“It’s clear that it had to come, Karim is a great player, and he doesn’t have to score goals every day to show what he’s worth," the Brazilian added.

"I don't think that Karim thinks he lifted a weight off his shoulders. He works very hard for the team. Everyone has bad days once in a while, but he deserved to have a match like tonight."

Real Qualify For Third Straight UCL Final

Real are on track to win three consecutive Champions League trophies and will face either Liverpool or Roma in the final of this season's competition.

@Big-Mike14....do you expect the SECOND FIDDLE I.D.I.O.T.S to read anything about football and officiating rules? The only thing they read is anything against Madrid (as they envy us.....BIG TIME), and any lousy so called news about siss-messi (like him taking a p.e.e.......thats news to read for them).

Since when did Marcelo became a refree? Every commentator I have listened to analysing that game......they have stated it clear......IT WAS A BALL ON HAND. Instead you have Benzema being brought down in the box and there was nothing from the ref. Sky Sport has shown the footage from every angle and they conceeded that there was a contact and nothing was given. This SECOND FIDDLE COWditor is a siss-messi out and out groupie.....that one is well known fact. No wonder he is trying to console his SECOND FIDDLE DONKIES from COWtalonya.

Blah blah no news here, Marcelo was in an "UNNATURAL POSITION" when that ball hit his arm, for those who are a bit slow & not familiar with FIFA rules/laws it simply means he was "AIRBORNE" & therefore we all know you need your hands to balance yourself when you mid air.

Benzema did very well last nite. I hope the French coach will include him in the world cup squad. He will add value in their attacking like. CR7 should have score an easy chance, but then again, the best also miss sometimes. Bayern played very well. Congra Madridistas!
