A lot of people don’t like Thibaut Courtois, but there’s no denying his talent. Rarely has a goalkeeper been hated by those who love him like Courtois.
The Belgian goalkeeper has received harsh criticism from both Atletico Madrid and Chelsea fans, or even when he first arrived at Real. Overcoming all, Courtois is on its way back to being number 1.
Real’s recent victory over Atletico once again shows Courtois how excellent it is. AS said Courtois has shattered all doubts about her.
Against Atletico, the Belgian goalkeeper has at least two saves when he has to face opponent strikers. The strikers of the visitors such as Vitolo or Angel Correa all failed to face Courtois.
For most of the Madrid derby, Atletico was the better team. Over the past months, Real have played extremely practical football with fulcrum from defense. Losing 0-1 to Mallorca at the end of October last year was the last time people saw losing.
Since then, the Bernabeu team has 21 consecutive unbeaten matches in all competitions. Many of them are draws or goals with only 1-0. Real are the team that conceded at least La Liga so far this season.
The number of goals conceded in their La Liga right now is almost half that of Barca. If this achievement is maintained until the end of the season, Real can break many defensive records in the team history. And the excellence of the Real crafts has a great contribution from the guardian of Courtois temple.
However, so far of the season, it can be said that Courtois has successfully steered his career. He is currently one of the best Real players at the moment. The Belgian goalkeeper conceded 0.56 goals per game. He became the goalkeeper to concede at least the current La Liga, surpassing colleagues like Jan Oblak or Ter Stegen.
