La Liga giants Real Madrid’s star player Thibaut Courtois is not having the best of seasons presently. He is no longer being considered the world-class goalkeeper which he used to be considered by fans when he used to play for teams like Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois has now conceded in each of his last La Liga matches. He is thus on his longest run without conceding a single goal in the match.
The Belgian International has played as many as 154 matches each for Atletico Madrid and Chelsea. For Atletico Madrid, he did not concede a single goal in 76 of these matches. For Chelsea, he did not concede in 58 matches of the 154 he played as per a report carried by Goal.

However, in the 38 matches that Courtois has played at Real Madrid, he has only managed not conceding a goal in 10 matches. In the remaining 28 matches, Courtois conceded 52 goals. Although the Belgian won the Golden Glove award at FIFA World Cup in 2018, his stint with Real Madrid has not been impressive.

With goalie Keylor Navas leaving for Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), it might be a possibility that Courtois takes up shirt no 1 at Real Madrid and would look to put up an impressive show with Real Madrid.
