Marcelo admits Real Madrid started slowly in 2-2 draw with Osasuna
Real Madrid defender Marcelo has admitted Real Madrid should have started quicker in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Osasuna.
Los Merengues required a late equaliser from Pepe to snatch a point at El Sadar.
“We started the first half badly and we reacted late,” he said, as reported by Football Espana.
“The team had a good attitude but a tie is like a defeat for us.
“We know we deserve more than a point but we reacted a bit late.
“Referees? No comment We should've won and avoid mentioning referees.”
Real Madrid are now five points adrift of leaders Barcelona and Atlético Madrid at the top of La Liga.
