Thibaut Courtois Real Madrid 2019-20

Real Madrid will be without Thibaut Courtois for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter with Manchester City after seeing their first-choice goalkeeper pick up an untimely injury.

The Blancos have confirmed that the Belgian international is nursing a groin complaint.

Courtois was able to see 90 minutes of La Liga action against Real Betis on Sunday, as Zinedine Zidane’s side suffered a shock 2-1 defeat.

He was, however, spotted hobbling in the aftermath of that contest, raising fears as to his involvement in upcoming fixtures.

Medical tests have revealed that the 27-year-old will require a spell on the sidelines in order to recover full match fitness.

That means Courtois will be unavailable for a meeting with Eibar on Friday, before then sitting out a crucial European clash with City at the Etihad Stadium.

An update on Madrid’s official website read: “Following tests carried out today on Thibaut Courtois by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with an injury to his left adductor muscle. His recovery will be monitored.”
