The end of the La Liga season offers an exciting final between Real Madrid and Barcelona and the doorman of the Devils has a say in Real’s good performances.
Real Madrid does not let go and clings to the title, imposing its pace at Barça in recent meetings. Courteous, Hazard and Co. have won all their matches since the La Liga takeover and remain tied with FC Barcelona at the top of the rankings.
Performances in which Thibaut Courtois played an important role according to the Iberian media. The goalkeeper of the Devils made important saves and kept the clean sheet against Valencia and Mallorca, a performance which brings him to a total of 14 in the league, returning to Jan Oblak of Atlético de Madrid.
The Belgian was thus honored by La Liga who on his official account renamed him “Courtois = Muro” (the wall). Just that…

This Saturday morning, Courtois also made the front page of the AS newspaper alongside four teammates, with the title “Intocables” (untouchables), thus qualifying Courtois, Ramos, Carvajal, Benzema and Varane untouchables in the eleven of Zidane, and also the basis of Real’s current solid performance.
The doubts and criticisms that have long been cast on the number one of the Devils seem far away.
🌞 ¡Buenos días!
