Before Real Madrid begins to play against Sevilla in search of a new victory for LaLiga Santander, there were very special moments at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. In addition to Karim Benzema’s Ballon d’Or presentation, Thibaut Courtois also wore the Lev Yashin Trophy.
The Belgian goalkeeper, chosen as the best goalkeeper in the world last season at the ceremony prepared by the prestigious magazine France Football, received the award from the hands of the historic Iker Casillas. Later, the lanky goalkeeper showed it to the fans amid an impressive ovation.
“It’s nice to hear it officially. I play for Real Madrid and only the best play here. In the end I have to help my team to win trophies and when you do it you know that you get to be the best. This reward is very good, but it only comes when the team wins titles”, Courtois pointed out on the day of the gala.
The Bernabéu was dyed gold
The prelude to the match between Real Madrid and Sevilla, on date 11 of LaLiga, were festive for the Madrid fans, who dyed the Santiago Bernabéu gold to pay tribute to the Frenchman Karim Benzema, who offered the Ballon d’Or, and to the Belgian Thibuat Courtois.
That yes, the battering ram did it street dress, since on the morning of this Saturday it was known that he was low due to a “Muscular fatigue in the quadriceps of the left leg”.
Benzema will not take any risk and will miss his fourth game so far this season. On September 7, he suffered a muscle rupture in the semitendinosus and an overload in the right quadriceps that made him miss three games, and the last one, against Getafe, due to being loaded after returning and playing two full games in three days.
