Marcelino Bernal Pérez (born May 27, 1962 in Tepic) is a retired Mexican football midfielder.

He got 65 caps and 5 goals for the Mexican national team between 1988 and 1998, and he participated at the World Cups in 1994 and 1998. At the 1994 World Cup he scored a fantastic goal in the game against Italy, but he was best known for the Mexico-Bulgaria second-round game in which he cleared a shot from Krassimir Balakov, but in doing so, he fell on the net and snapped the post, causing the goal to cave in. After an eight-minute delay, a new net was brought in and play resumed. Mexico would eventually lose in a penalty shootout, in which Bulgaria goalkeeper Borislav Mikhailov saved Bernal's attempt.
