Thibaut Courtois highlighted Real Madrid’s victory (2-1) against Celta de Vigo on a visit to stay at the top of the table (69 points) and take a 12-point lead over second place, which is Seville. In this regard, the goalkeeper does not believe in controversy and considered that the penalties committed against his team were clear.
“It is very important to win as it was a very difficult game and you can suffer. When I have played here it has been very hard, I don’t know if we deserve to win because in the first half I have made two saves, but we have gone to their area and they are three fair penalties because they are all three “said in Movistar.
The goalkeeper explained the infractions in detail: “The first and the second are very clear, the third is the one that is more difficult to see from my goal, but in the end if you put your foot in, they have awarded us penalties like that against us as well and now it has been in favor. It’s been a long time since they charged us three”.
On the other hand, he also referred to Thiago Galhardo’s disallowed goal. “He shoots, I make a save, I push it to the post, Iago is offside and prevents Alaba from taking the ball. That is offside and he understands it.” added the goalkeeper of the ‘White House’.
Real Madrid thinks of Chelsea
The squad led by Carlo Ancelotti will have to prepare for the first leg against Chelsea in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League. The game will be played this Wednesday at 2 pm (Peruvian time) at Stamford Bridge. Then, the English team will visit the Santiago Bernabéu on April 12.
In this regard, Courtois highlighted the virtues of his rival. “They lost at home (4-1 to Brentford), but they will be very strong. He is going to be a hit. We have to give more because we lack intensity sometimes. There we cannot fail in that, then we have football ”, he added.
