VIDEO: Morata and Marcelo produce special finishes in Madrid training

The Brazilian defender and Spain international striker have showcased their goal-scoring skills with a couple of stylish flicks

Alvaro Morata and Marcelo have been showing off their finishing skills during a Real Madrid training exercise.

Marcelo, though, has shown that even full-backs can pull off a few tricks, with the defender channelling his natural Brazilian flair.

Leaving the goalkeeper rooted to the spot is no mean feat, even in training when a lack of pressure allows for such experiments and challenges to be taken on.

Both men produced similar finishes, although Morata made the cleaner contact.

While it is unlikely that either will try something similar in their next outing, Madrid will be looking for inspiration from somewhere in what is shaping up to be a testing few weeks.
