Decisive Wednesday night against Liverpool, Courtois regains his level which was his a few years ago.
A game without a goal but a qualification for the semi-finals of the Champions League. On Wednesday night, Real Madrid certainly did not deliver the best game of its season but provided the essentials against Liverpool. After its success in the first leg (3-1), the Madrid club resisted defensively so as not to live in disillusion.
However, the Reds, forced to run after the score, were dangerous and could have put pressure on the Merengue with a little more efficiency and without a Thibaut Courtois of the great evenings.
“I made two great saves in the first half. A first in front of Salah, whom I put back with my foot and it was a good save, described the Belgian on the club’s TV channel. Then I then pulled out a top corner strike from Milner. I made another stop in second. We defended well, Militao made two good blocks too. I’m very happy with the game. “
He is not the only one to have been happy to be at the level. Zinedine Zidane once again praised his goalkeeper.
Arrived in Madrid three seasons ago, Courtois has been slow to regain the level he was at at Atlético Madrid and Chelsea. If the supporters have long regretted the departure of Keylor Navas to PSG, this is no longer the case.
The last Belgian bulwark has regained all its glory and has often allowed Real Madrid to stay alive throughout the season. If the club can still dream of a C1-Liga double, Courtois is no stranger to it.
“I feel very good. I said it, we are working very hard, I want to win a lot of titles with Real Madrid. I give everything for that. I cannot tell you if I am the best or not, there is has great goalies, but we’re all at a very good level. Keeping my goal untouched here makes me very happy. “
Without the Varane – Sergio Ramos rearguard, Zidane can still count on his trusted men.
