first_imgIn seven months of competition, Thibaut Courtois has traveled through all moods. Of the unsafety at the beginning of the season fueled by statistics (nine goals conceded in the first five games) and by the shadow of Keylor Navas, goalkeeper of the three Champions followed by PSG, he went to the frustration to feel pointed after the win of the PSG (3-0) and whistled in the Bernabéu against Bruges (he conceded two goals and stayed in the locker room at rest for some stomach discomfort). After, reborn with merit stops and zero goals, acting as a hero against Valencia (he headed in the discount a corner that opened the way for a draw to one of Benzema) and in the Supercopa of Spain (fantastic during the final against Atleti, Thomas was penalized in the batch and gave the title to Madrid). And when I was in full physical, psychological and with an outstanding service sheet, against Levante doubts returned in Morales’ goal, where he was inexplicably seen to shrug his arms.For Courtois, the turning point of his season came on October 22 in Istanbul, when Madrid won the Galatasaray (0-1). Before that meeting, he felt on the target after the wreck of Madrid in Mallorca (1-0), in that game against Bruges where he did not play the second half for an indisposition (2-2) and in the debacle of Paris ( 3-0). In addition, in the other games he did not offer that image of ‘miracle goalkeeper’ so of Real Madrid. But in Ali Sami Yen, Courtois fell apart. “Against Bruges we got a point that was key to classify us. But against Galatasaray I got a‘ click. ‘Suddenly I had that feeling that no one surpassed me. Then Roberto Martínez, the coach, told me: ‘There I have seen the Thibaut of the World Cup again,” said the Real Madrid goalkeeper in statements at Proximus Sport. That night in Turkey stopped all the auction shots that came to him and sent a message outside the field: “I am the goalkeeper that I am and I never doubted myself. I know where I am and I am only interested in constructive criticism.” After the match in Turkey, Courtois only conceded 10 goals in 19 games (0.5) and registered eleven ‘goals to zero’. Contrast with the 12 goals in nine clashes that precede the appointment against Galatasaray (1,3) and only twice unbeaten. The Belgian was one of the pillars of that streak of 21 games without losing that Madrid had. “The important thing for me is not to show doubts; I will not shake my defense either, ”he said. Some doubts that seem to have returned in the last two games, where those of Zidane have lost five points (2-2 against Celta and defeat 1-0 against Levante), at the least opportune moment of the season.
