The main goalkeeper of Real Madrid is injured and cannot help his team.
Andrey Lunin is closing in on his debut for Real Madrid in the Champions League. According to Spanish media, Madrid’s main goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is injured and will miss the match in the third round of the tournament against Shakhtar, which will take place on Wednesday, October 5.
According to El Chiringuito, the Belgian goalkeeper will certainly not have time to recover from a back injury, because of which he missed the match against Osasuna yesterday. He will not rush the recovery and risk the health of the main goalkeeper and the coaching staff, where the main thing is that Courtois fully recovered from his injury in El Clasico against Barcelona on October 16.
So, in the match against Shakhtar, the doors of the “Royal Club” are likely to be defended again by Andrey Lunin. For the goalkeeper of the Ukrainian national team, this will be his debut match in the Champions League.
It will be recalled that Lunin was previously recognized as the worst player in Madrid in a match against Osasuna.
