The 34-year-old then paid a tribute to his former Real Madrid teammate, Ronaldo, by hitting the legendary forward's iconic goal celebration.

After the game, Marcelo took to his official Twitter handle to post the pictures from Wednesday's game and even tagged Cristiano Ronaldo.

He wrote: "Siiiiiuuuuu!!!! @Cristiano "

What does Ronaldo's SUIII mean?

Ronaldo's iconic goal celebration sees him perform a mid-air pirouette before exclaiming "siu"- which is Spanish for "yes!", GOAL claims.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner jumps and lands, and fans usually join the former Manchester United star in roaring the word, producing a booming sound that reverberates throughout the stadium.

The 'si!' celebration has become synonymous with Ronaldo in the later part of his career and he first began performing it when he was at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid fans don Ronaldo shirts

Sports Brief reported earlier on how Real Madrid supporters were spotted rocking Cristiano Ronaldo shirts recently.

Despite no longer being at the club, Ronaldo was still on the minds of fans who came out to watch Los Blancos take on Valencia in the Supercopa.

Some supporters were seen in the stands with their Real Madrid Ronaldo shirts ahead of the game. It's no surprise that Ronaldo fans would come out for the game, as the Supercopa is being held in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo’s new home.
