Watch: Marcelo's First Touch Continues To Be The Stuff Of Dreams

Marcelo continues to show just why a good portion of people feel he has the best first-touch in world football.

On his 30th birthday, the Brazilian featured for Real Madrid in their 6-0 demolition of Celta Vigo on Saturday night as Zinedine Zidane's side look to enter their third Champions League final in a row in fine form.

And long behold, he had us all gawking yet again with a mesmeric touch to bring the ball down on the left flank.


His compatriot Casemiro sprayed the ball out to him and the left-back stopped it dead as if it was the easiest thing in the world. It's the sort of thing you could watch on loop without getting bored.

18 days ago, the former Fluminense had everyone in awe with the most satisfying first touch in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich.

He then followed it up with some ridiculous 'no look control' in Real Madrid training, collecting the ball from behind him as though he genuinely had eyes on the back of his head.

He's so good that he doesn't even need to look at the ball to control anymore. Marcelo is quite possibly the best left-back in the world today, and there's a case for him having the best first-touch too.
