first_imgBefore starring in a vigorous second half, Madrid walked on the wire in the first part and relied on the 199 centimeters of his goalkeeper, author of three stops worthy of fame that won with Belgium and Atlético. With 0-0, he wore reflexes to clear a very powerful Arambarri volley from the front; and after Varane 0-1, he closed the door to Fajr in the first suit; and on the verge of rest, he stretched to reject a header from Cabrera that, if he entered, would have weighed like a slab over white morals. “That was important, we could have gone with a draw to rest. The 0-1 made us enter calmer in the second half, “confessed after the duel the keeper. Thibaut, in a state of grace, does not seem the same as he heard recurring whistles of the Bernabéu in the first two months of competition. Chain three games with the gate to zero and has stopped 26 of the last 28 shots he has received (in the previous 15 shots, only eight stops). In the first nine days of LaLiga (of which he played seven) he received seven goals; In the next ten (only one was lost), he twice picked up the ball from his net. In Getafe Madrid were Courtois and ten more. The logic of the result will invite the spotlights to aim at Varane, bigoleador, or Valverde, energetic from the bench, but neither of them would have shone had it not been for the Belgian’s exhibition in the first half to hold the whites on their feet.center_img There are nine goals in 16 games that have taken him to the top of the Zamora Trophy classification: 0.56 goals against average, exceeding 0.63 of Oblak (yesterday one fit in). This is very long, but Courtois already walks the path that the last Zamora of Real Madrid once traveled: Iker Casillas, winner of the award in the 2007-08 season (32 goals in 36 games). A path that the Belgian also knows: he won the prize twice playing for Atlético (2012-13 and 2013-14).“The defensive and goalkeeping work is being very good, that helps to win,” said Courtois, who is already focusing on moving his moment of bonanza to the Saudi Super Cup: “We are ready, everyone feels good. Come on. for the first title. ” Zidane, who endured the Belgian in the post when reality asked otherwise, can now breastfeed: “He’s my goalkeeper, for me he’s the best. I have no doubt.”last_img
