Courtois suffers in San Mamés

Thibaut Courtois (28 years old) is going through a fantastic season finale. The Belgian goalkeeper has started in the six games that have been played since the return from the league competition and has only suffered two goals (against Eibar and Real Sociedad). He is supporting the white team with his performances in this final stretch. Without going any further, against Getafe, he took out a prodigious pair of hands to avoid greater harm to the white team. So much Zamora has the goalkeeper with the fewest goals scored in this league.

Today will put you at risk in San Mamés, a stadium that is not particularly good at it. The Belgian adds, in the League, two defeats (both 3-0 and wearing the Atlético shirt), one win (1-2, also from Atletico) and another draw (1-1, last season on his first visit with the Madrid). In addition, we must add another visit, this time in the Cup, which also ended with an athletic victory by 1-2. Nine goals conceded in five visits to Bilbao and no goal to zero …

The funny thing is that Courtois now has 17 games without fitting into this league championship: he has only received 18 goals in 30 games who has participated (has a coefficient of 0.62, a figure mathematically unattainable for Oblak and the rest of the goalkeepers at this point, according to MisterChip). So if Zidane wanted, Courtois could no longer play in this League and secure the award for the least beaten goalkeeper of the season. He will not rest while the title is at stake, but everything is on track for the Belgian to add another Zamora Trophy for his collection (he has two of the 2012-13 and 2013-14 campaigns with Atlético de Madrid) and for Madrid, which does not he achieves this since 2007-08 with Casillas.

But there is another record that you can beat today in San Mamés. If no goal is conceded, it will be the fourth consecutive league game in which Bree's will not pick up the ball from the bottom of his tights. Until now adds three streaks of three consecutive days without fitting: he did not even receive against Sevilla, Osasuna and Atlético (on matchdays 5, 6 and 7). The second streak was between days 11 and 13 (Leganés, Betis and Eibar) and the penultimate positive dynamic was in December-January: Barça was measured (day 10: it should have been played in October), Athletic (day 18, last match of 2019) and Getafe (matchday 19 and first match of 2020). Today he wants to close his goal in Bilbao … and strengthen Zamora.
