The coldness of Courtois in the area: the hitch to win against Kai Havertz | VIDEO

His main function is to avoid goals, but circumstances sometimes force him to leave his goal and show up with a passing option for his teammates. We say that Thibaut Courtois, who showed off with a play against Kai Havertz, in Real Madrid vs. Chelsea, for the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

At minute 10 of the first period of extra time, Dani Carvajal gave the ball to the Belgian goalkeeper, who was immediately pressured by Kai Havertz. Before the arrival of the German, Courtois made a great hitch and made the ‘Blues’ attacker go by.

The action, in fact, scared more than one at the Santiago Bernabéu. It is worth mentioning that shortly before, the meringues got 3-2, thanks to the appearance of their main goal card, Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid, to semifinals

With goals from the Brazilian Rodrygo Goes (80′) and the Frenchman Karim Benzema (96′), Real Madrid qualified for the semifinals of the Champions League despite losing 3-2 in extra time against Chelsea on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Although the tie seemed doomed after the Whites’ 3-1 win in London a week ago, Chelsea were able to turn it around with goals from Mason Mount (15′) and the Germans Antonio Rüdiger (51′) and Timo Werner (75′), but when Real Madrid seemed to have lost everything, he first forced extra time and then sealed his classification in extra time.

The Spanish team, which is looking for its 14th continental title, will play for the pass to the final against the winner of the semifinal that will be resolved on Wednesday by Atlético de Madrid and Manchester City (with a 1-0 advantage for the English).
