A moment of panic in the ranks of Real Madrid. At the end of the Spanish top-flight match against Barcelona, Courtois suddenly fell at the start. Out of contact – often a bad sign. Courtois felt his right knee and was clearly in pain. Doctors ran to the field. Cruciate ligaments? articular cartilage? The pain seemed to subside while treating the injury, as the Red Devil played the remaining seven minutes.
Movistar Plus told his story. “I felt a twinge of pain when I kicked. Hopefully nothing serious. I was able to finish the match, but we have to look into it further with the doctors.” It happened today. The examination did not show any serious damage. In the coming days, minor inconveniences will be monitored by medical staff. The feeling will determine if he can get out completely or if he can stay inside.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti added yesterday: “Courtois caused an inconvenience. But it doesn’t look that bad in the end. There was a question for a moment whether I should change him. But he improved, so we left Thibaut.”
By the way, the photos were already very hopeful after the match. Courtois posted a selfie video on Instagram. Goodbye Madrid. We are very happy with this Clasico win.” The goalkeeper was standing on an empty Camp Nou pitch.
