Courtois Earns A Point For Real Madrid At Getafe

Posted by

Real Madrid held off a spirited Getafe to earn a point that keeps them in touch with La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid. Thibaut Courtois made several key saves.

Because of Covid-19, Zinedine Zidane was missing many players due to injury, suspension, or loneliness.

Early on, Courtois made his first major save, denying Mathias Olivera’s close-range effort. Late in the game, the Belgian tipped over Nemanja Maksimovic’s deflected attempt.

Real, who defeated Barcelona last weekend and eliminated Liverpool from the Champions League in midweek, are now three points behind leaders Atletico Madrid and two points ahead of Barcelona, who have a game in hand.
