Thibaut Courtois is doubtful to face Manchester City. The Belgian goalkeeper limped out of Benito Villamarin after the game against Real Betis as El Chiringuito showed and this Tuesday he will undergo tests to find out the extent of his left leg injury. The resonance cannot be advanced to Monday due to inflammation in the area of the lesion.
The Belgian goalkeeper could be low for at least the next two meetings: Eibar’s visit to Santiago Bernabeu and the round of 16 of the Champions League against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, where whites are forced to overcome 1-2 of the first leg at the Bernabeu.
This injury could take Courtois away from the white goal for the first time since February 6, when Areola played the 90 minutes 3-4 at home against Real Sociedad. In the League, Courtois has been starting since December 7 on an uninterrupted basis.
In spite of the two conceded goals, Courtois avoided that Real Madrid will fit more so many before Real Betis with decisive stops like the one that made Nabil Fekir. Now, the Belgian is among cottons and he may not be able to defend the white goal in one of the most important games of the season.
