Real Madrid left-back Marcelo made an incredible saving tackle to prevent what looked a big chance for Barcelona forward Lionel Messi in yesterday’s El Clasico match.

Watch below as the Argentine looks in on goal before Marcelo miraculously sprints back and gets a toe to the ball to clear the danger.

Messi has so often been the hero in these fixtures, but Marcelo’s great defensive work here shows he’s surely also one of the all-time greats of this rivalry.

The Brazilian has been a tremendous servant for Los Blancos down the years and he’s still going strong to keep even the great Messi at bay.
