Real Madrid Keeper Thibaut Courtois Outlines Important ‘Advantage’ They Have Over Liverpool In Battle For Champions League Glory
Real Madrid’s keeper Thibaut has been talking about the Champions League final against Liverpool and what he believes his team may have.
Los Blancos secured their spot in the final with a dramatic turn in their semi-final against Manchester City, at the Santiago Bernabeu, on Wednesday.
Two goals in injury time from Brazilian Rodrygo pushed the game into extra time before Karim Benzema sent Madrid to the final with a penalty during the additional 30 minutes.
As per AS (via Sport Witness), Courtois believes Carlo Ancelotti’s team have proved they are more than capable of winning the trophy after knocking out PSG, Chelsea, and City. This team, this club is capable of everything. We didn’t give up until the end.
“We’ve knocked out some very big teams, who have spent a lot of money to try to win the Champions League.
“The path we’ve had… We know that at home, we can do everything, and we’re looking forward to getting back to a final.
