Marcelo: La Liga not over yet
Real Madrid's Marcelo has refused to concede defeat in the title race saying that it's 'too soon' to write off Jose Mourinho's side.
Marcelo, 24, spoke after Real's 2-2 draw with Barcelona in the El Clásico: "It's going to be hard to overtake Barcelona but we'll work hard to reduce the gap. La Liga is not over, it's too soon to say that.
"Eight points is a big difference, but nothing is decided yet."
The Brazilian was happy with his side's performance at the weekend: "Camp Nou is a really difficult stadium to win in. I'm really glad because we have fought hard and made a great effort so I'm satisfied. We had our chances, but we couldn't score.
"We've won games in the past with fewer chances, but the draw is not a bad result."
The draw for Real means that they remain eight points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga seven games into the season.
