On Wednesday, May 17, in the return semi-final of the Champions League against Manchester City, Real Madrid suffered a major defeat – 0:4.
This failure, together with a 1-1 home draw, closed the road to the final of the tournament for the “creamy” ones.
It is reported that the gates of Real Madrid in the match against City at the Etihad were defended by Thibault Courtois, who had health problems. The Belgian took part in the La Liga match against Getafe last weekend and injured his triceps muscles in it. The source claims that Courtois felt uncomfortable throughout the game with Manchester City, but remained at the last frontier of the team.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian goalkeeper Andrei Lunin spent the whole game in the reserve of Real Madrid.
After losing to Manchester City and being knocked out of the Champions League, Thibault Courtois is expected to make a major infirmary to fully recover. This means that Lunin will play for Real at the end of the season.
