‘We have to wake up’: Courtois was not kind to his teammates after having to fall back three times in the defeat in Leipzig | sports

Champions LeagueReal Madrid is not yet sure of the group’s victory in the Champions League. And the royal suffered a sudden defeat in Leipzig (3-2) after a poor performance. Thus, the Germans are one point away from Real Madrid with one day remaining in Group F. Nor was Courtois gentle then: “A bad day was possible, but the sharpness was not there.”

Thibaut Courtois, like Simon Mignolet, is not yet defeated in the Champions League. Due to a back injury, the best goalkeeper in the world played two less active matches than he did with the Red Devils. Courtois could not live on this statistic in Leipzig for long, because the home team started strong.

We were still sleeping in the field. There was no severity and you pay it in cash.

The Germans scored two goals in less than twenty minutes. Courtois was let down by his defense in two corners. At first he saved 1-0, but our compatriot had no story against Gvardiol’s rebound. A little later the same story: Nkunko with 2-0.

Real were nowhere to be seen and he had to thank Courtois for not being an embarrassment before the break. Typical of the Royal was the goal connected with a hit from the first half. Asensio hit Vinnie Jr with a header, and we had another match in the second half.

Standings after five days of Group F matches.

1. Real Madrid – 10 points

2. RB Leipzig – 9 points

3. Donetsk Chakther – 6 points

Eden Hazard actually had another fifteen minutes, but the Red Devils couldn’t force an equaliser. On the contrary, Werner put Leipzig on its way to a surprise 3-1 victory ten minutes from the end. A penalty kick from Rodrygo at the end was a footnote. Leipzig comes at one point from the Royal.

In the other match in Group F, the match between Shakhtar Donetsk and Celtic ended 1-1. Talent erased Modric goal from Giacomakis in the second half. Celtic are eliminated in Europe, and the Scots will face Real on the last day of play. Leipzig fights Chakther.

Courtois: “We have to wake up”

“It happens to us every now and then,” Courtois sighed on Spanish TV afterwards. We were still sleeping in the field. There was no severity and you pay it in cash. The coach warned us about this and it became a reality.”

The Red Devil continued, “We cannot go to the square with this situation.” “We scored the calling goal before the end of the first half, but the weather wasn’t good in the second half. A lot of passes went wrong. As a goalkeeper you see we’re not in the game. We lost a lot of duels. You can see that in the goals. The ferocity was missing.” We need to wake up. You may have a bad day, but the intensity should always be there. If it doesn’t work out, there are too many men on the couch.”

On the other hand, coach Carlo Ancelotti was conservative when confronted by his goalkeeper’s remarks at the post-match press conference. “Everyone has their own opinion,” said the Italian.
