Courtois is focused on tough October and November schedule

Thibaut Courtois is entirely focused on what is sure to be a difficult month for Real Madrid. The Spanish champions return to the Champions League next week, with the season’s first Clásico against Barcelona is also taking place at Camp Nou. Real Madrid have started the LaLiga season in great shape and sit on the top of the table in these early stages, but Courtois knows there is still a long way to go and that starts with a tough October and November schedule. “This is a month of important games,” Courtois said as he accepted an award as Mahou Five Star Player in September, while also crediting his teammates for Real Madrid’s good defensive record.

For Belgian international, it’s essential to keep clean sheets

“It’s the job of the whole team, and I hope I can continue to help us win games. It’s essential to keep a clean sheet, but it’s also important to score goals and win the games we play. We are doing well physically and with our results, which we hope to continue for the next month. “In September Courtois retained two clean sheets in three games he saw voted Player of the Month at Real Madrid. The Costa Rican’s sale to PSG gave Courtois his confidence and form again. So he played a crucial role in winning the LaLiga title with Los Blancos in 2019/20. Courtois conceded just 20 goals in 34 LaLiga appearances throughout 2019/20. Impressively, the Belgian managed to keep a whopping 18 clean sheets, enough to see him win the Zamora Trophy, preventing Jan Oblak from winning it for the fifth time in a row.
