Thibaut Courtois gave a very interesting interview after a match. Real Madrid played against Real Sociedad and dropped two important points.
Real Madrid lost the momentum in the second half
Los Blancos played a very interesting formation. Zidane wanted to play with Mendy and Lucas on the wings. They could run up and down and help both, defense and attacking line. Casemiro was helping Varane’s and Nacho’s duo. Brazilian midfielder was playing from the deep creating formation of three central defenders. It was a very interesting decision from Zinedine Zidane. Keep in mind that Los Blancos played with Isco and Mariano in the attacking line. There was not a winger on the left wing, so Mendy had to do the job himself. Isco was helping both wings – Asensio and Mendy. In the second half, Real Madrid conceded a goal from the wing of Mendy. French defender could not return on time and Portu was first on the ball. He scored a very beautiful header – Real Sociedad had only that moment. Courtois said that there was only one moment that Real Madrid wingers (Lucas and Mendy) could not return and that’s when Sociedad scored a goal. It will be a big lesson for Courtois and he promised that season is long and there will be many points to drop from the opponents.
Formation from Zidane
Courtois said that he was very satisfied with the formation. Belgian keeper admitted that Real Madrid dominated the field in the first half. It was worth watching because Real Madrid was playing beautifully in the first half. Thibaut Courtois added that season is very long and it’s not over yet. Keep in mind that Los Blancos have the same amount of points as Barcelona. Atletico Madrid is the leader of La Liga table. Diego Simeone’s team is 5 points clear of Barca and Los Blancos.
