the rant of Thibaut Courtois

Last night, Real Madrid won 2-0 at the Santiago-Bernabéu stadium against RB Leipzig. An almost perfect evening listening to Thibaut Courtois, visibly annoyed by the state of the lawn of the Madrid enclosure. “Leipzig are a good team and it cost us dearly today. The first half was not good, the state of the pitch did not help us to play our football. The coach changed things at half-time, we didn’t create much danger and we scored. It is important to win these matches and now, by winning the double duel against Shakhtar, we can already qualify.”he said on Movistar.

The opportunity also for him to discuss his individual performance. “We knew they were dangerous with quality players who can surprise you. I was attentive with a few saves in the first half and the second was calmer. It’s important to keep a clean sheet because in La Liga we haven’t done that yet. We’ll see on Sunday”. A day that will be a derby day for the Merengues who will face Atlético.
