Following his impressive performance against Paris Saint-Germain in last night’s Champions League match, in which he saved a penalty from Lionel Messi, Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois spoke to RMC Sports.
“I studied it, he had missed once with Barca (against Atlético) but it hit the bar and it seems to me that he had missed one with Paris on the right side,” said the Belgian, who made 9 saves in total last night . “He put it there against Bruges and again against Nice in the Coupe de France so I figured I should dive to the left.”
He continued, referring to the fact that Messi has never scored against Thibaut Courtois in the Real Madrid goal (over the course of 6 games), “he’s not scored a lot of goals against me but, up against these great players, Leo, Neymar and Di Maria, you’ve always got to be careful.”
