‘El Muro’ is back: Thibaut Courtois should play well in the Champions League final

Thibaut Courtois, who did not play in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League against Bayern Munich, should be in the game against Dortmund on June 1 for the grand final. This is what Relevo and The Athletic announce. According to both media, Carlo Ancelotti would like to bet again on the best goalkeeper in his squad, who has already won everything, or almost everything, with Real Madrid.

Recovered from his knee injuries, the Red Devil will already play this weekend against Granada, as confirmed by the Italian coach. The idea would then be to allow him to continue against Alavès and Villarreal, but also against Betis, although an alternation with Lunin remains an option. Ancelotti would like to gauge the level of his 32-year-old goalkeeper (he will celebrate them tomorrow). If he reassures, which was already the case when he returned last week, the Belgian should then start.

The debate over goalkeepers rages. Lunin was decisive on multiple occasions, proving his worth and returning Kepa to the bench, despite being brought in this summer to replace the injured Courtois. But the Red Devil is not just anyone. If some believe that Lunin deserves to play in the final after having participated in the campaign throughout the season, Carlo Ancelotti seems convinced that Courtois should be there against Dortmund, in a match of such importance.
