Courtois raises Real Madrid crisis ahead of El Clasico against Barcelona
The Belgian Football Association has announced in an official statement that Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been injured ahead of the friendly against Germany on Tuesday the day after tomorrow.
And he continued in a statement that Courtois was susceptible to muscle fatigue, which caused the medical staff to order him removed from the squad in preparation for the meeting with Germany, and now he is returning to Madrid.
And in the event that the situation gets complicated and it is decided that he will be absent from the El Clasico match against Barcelona, scheduled for April 5, in the second leg of the semi-final of the Copa del Rey, this will be considered a strong blow to the royal.
Moreover, now the Belgian federation has not named the exact period of the player’s absence, since the matter is still ambiguous until he undergoes medical examinations to determine his condition.
