Hot comment by Courtois after Real Madrid’s victory over Chelsea
Belgian star Thibault Courtois, goalkeeper for Los Blancos, said during the post-match press conference: “Saving a goal makes me very happy. We played a very complete game, especially defensively.”
He stressed: “We have to play in London like we played against Barcelona. We can’t take the field without the intention of winning.”
The Santiago Bernabéu goalkeeper said: “This is an important moment for us. They played well at the beginning of the counterattack.”
And he continued: “In the second half, you need to have a long possession of the ball in order to prevent them from scoring a goal that can change the result.”
And the global goalkeeper summed up: “When Chilwell was sent off and played 10 players, we should have scored more goals and used opportunities, but we will go into the second leg with a 0-0 mentality.”
