A respite for Zidane and also, for his part, for Courtois, who while Keylor was on the team still felt the goalkeeper's shadow in the last three Champions. The Belgian will appear today of his stay with his reinforced selection: he signed two matches with his immaculate goal (0-4 a San Marino and identical marker against Scotland).
He will wear the '1'. Areola will carry, despite everything and paradoxically, the number 1 of Madrid. He was free and Courtois could not change it having already debuted in this League with 13. At the close of this edition, the club had not yet decided whether to present Areola in the usual way in the signings (perched in the stadium and press conference) or is limited to perform a small introductory act for the fans in it Bernabeu just before Real Madrid-Levante.
From four goalkeepers to only two
Four goalkeepers in 2018-19 (Courtois, Keylor, Kiko Casilla and Luca Zidane, this one with the Castile but in the official photo of the first team) two goalkeepers now. A radical change in a position in which Madrid used to register a third goalkeeper. In this course he could not because there were no more goalkeepers of the first team after the transfer of Lunin or free chips, since Madrid has spent the 25 possible. The third goalkeeper is theoretically Altube, owner of Castilla, although Belman has also been exercising for Zidane.
