Real Madrid defender Marcelo has signed a new five-year deal that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2022.

Earlier on Thursday (AEST), the Royal Spanish Football Federation confirmed that Marcelo will serve a two-match ban in Spain's top flight as a result of his red card against Levante last weekend.

The full-back has enjoyed monumental success in Madrid, boasting three Champions League titles to go with four domestic crowns.

Official Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez wrote in his report that he saw Marcelo kick Lerma in the back away from the action.

The left-sided footballer received his marching orders in the 89th minute of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Santiago Bernabeu, and Marca has now reported that he will be unavailable for the next two La Liga games.

Marcelo has made 406 appearances for Madrid, scoring 28 goals. Still, the Brazilian's absence causes another headache for Zinedine Zidane, who is already without Karim Benzema (injured) and Cristiano Ronaldo (suspended) for the trip to second-placed Sociedad on Sunday. It hurts to see Real Madrid, in three games, picking up the same number of sendings off as Barcelona in more than two seasons", he said, adding, "The stats are there, and objective, and speak for themselves.
