Courtois Set to Shine in First 2021 Start as Real Madrid Edges Closer to Championship Glory

Thibaut Courtois returns to action this weekend after a long break, but Ancelotti trusts Andriy Lunin for the Champions League match. Real Madrid’s head coach revealed that Courtois will start against Cadiz on Saturday since he has recovered fully from two knee injuries. Alessandro also added that Courtois, who has been out for 13 months due to torn ligaments, will be cautious with Courtois and will opt for Lunin in the upcoming crucial Champions League match against Bayern Munich. The coach showed confidence in both goalkeepers but indicated that Courtois would likely regain his primary spot soon. Moreover, Eder Militao will play to get into form after a passive performance in the previous match against Bayern. Ancelotti stated his team’s focus on the upcoming “final” against Bayern and emphasized looking forward to the possibility of reaching the final in London. With only five games remaining, Real Madrid stands at the top of LaLiga, hoping to secure their 36th Spanish title with a win against Cadiz and Barcelona’s failure to win against Girona on the same day.
