Marcelo limped off the field in the 10th minute of Wednesday's game against Serbia.

Doctors will blame a soft mattress for an injury before admitting they made mistakes getting the players ready for the tournament in Russian Federation.

Lasmar said it was a precautionary measure because the defender felt his muscles "lock up".

"Marcelo has a medical history with this kind of injury", Lasmar said in the mixed zone.

The Real Madrid left-back lasted just ten minutes during Brazil's final Group E match against Serbia, following which Luis replaced him.

Brazil manager Tite has confirmed his starting XI for their round-of-16 tie against Mexico on Monday, with Marcelo dropping out due to injury.

Tite says he intends to copy positive aspects of the win over Serbia.

Brazil faces Mexico in the round of 16 and the South Americans are aiming to reach their seventh quarter final in a row, while the Mexicans are hoping to lift their "curse".
