With only five days to go before the Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian is now back in training

Marcelo has returned to training with Real Madrid, providing Zinedine Zidane a fitness boost ahead of next week's Champions League last-16 trip to Paris Saint-Germain.

The left-back was a doubt for the game after suffering a hamstring injury during a LaLiga match against Real Betis last month.

But the Brazilian was back in training for Madrid on Thursday, giving the 29-year-old a chance of facing PSG at the Parc des Princes on March 6.

Marcelo scored Madrid's last goal in a 3-1 defeat of PSG in the opening leg.
