Real Madrid played the second game of the pre-season at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. Marcelo evaluated the match against Manchester City: “We had a good first half, until their opening goal. Then we tired a bit and they were better physically, but it’s to be expected because it’s only our second pre-season game. We now have to rest and turn our attentions to the next game”.
“The result is not what we wanted, but it’s not very important either. We did a good job and did what the coach asked of us. These games give people the chance to come and watch us, and for us they’re just like another training session”.

“Wherever you go in the world, you’ll always find Real Madrid fans and there were loads of them here today”.
