If Real Madrid fans spend the weekend celebrating another European title, they owe a lot to goalkeeper Courtois, one of the highlights of the season and the big decision against Liverpool. According to “Rádio Marca”, the Belgian archer played in the confrontation last Saturday with an injury, with a groin discomfort.
The outlet claims Courtois has been trying to deal with the physical issue for a few weeks – so much so that the reserve Lunin had space in the final stage of La Liga, after the expected Real Madrid title. Then he participated in the last round against Betis, already in preparation for the final of the Champions League.

Now the Belgian national team will have to deal with the goalkeeper’s physical problem as Real Madrid have gone on vacation until next season – but the Belgians have League of Nations commitments in the coming weeks. Courtois has been called up by coach Roberto Martinez, but doctors may suggest rest is the player’s best option.
National team goalkeeper coach Erwin Lemmens has confirmed that Courtois has an injury and needs treatment.
We have to deal with these problems of the year well, to be good next season and also in the World Cup. “We have to understand the choice of the rest,” Lemmens said.
