Madrid dug deep in our soul, says match- winner Marcelo

Real Madrid match-winner Marcelo hailed his side
for digging "deep into our soul" as they snatched a
2-1 victory over Valencia on Saturday.
The Brazil full-back struck with four minutes of
normal time remaining after Dani Parejo's free-kick
had cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's first-half
opener.
The winning goal, which came only four minutes
after Parejo's stunning equaliser and followed a
missed penalty from Ronaldo, ensured Madrid
moved three points clear of Barcelona at the top of
LaLiga ahead of their derby clash with Espanyol
later in the day.
Marcelo was thrilled with his first top-flight goal
since October, but more pleased with his side's
determination to fight for what could prove a
pivotal victory.
"It's impossible to know if the goal will be decisive
or not. I'm happy with the three points in a difficult
game," he told beIN Sports.
"There are a lot of people who come to the
Bernabeu who want to frustrate us, but that's
normal. We dug deep into our soul and we've
shown who we are. Real Madrid are a great side.
"In the end, we went out running and fighting and
we got three important points. I'm happy with the
goal but more for the points. It's important that we
keep going, step by step, and that we fight until the
end.
"We want to win every game we have left. The
objective is to go step by step, but with a lot of
effort."
