Many questions and clear answers arise at Real Madrid when discussing a key action against Guardiola’s men.

The first leg of the Champions League quarter finals between Real Madrid and Manchester City continues to be a topic of discussion. Analysis ahead of the second leg is almost endless, even within the white team itself.

One of Real Madrid’s major absentees this season, Thibaut Courtois, closely followed the match and did not hesitate to comment on what happened to his teammate Andriy Lunin.

A night full of goals at Santiago Bernabéu where Real Madrid left with good offensive sensations, but defensively, there were doubts as the last line fell short.

Thibaut Courtois reacted to Andriy Lunin’s performance against a Manchester City that only scored from outside the box. There are perspectives beyond the criticism received.

The Ukrainian is the first to know what level of responsibility he holds for each of Guardiola’s team’s goals.

Courtois watched from afar, always analyzing different shots that, of course, mean going to Manchester with the obligation to win. It’s not the first time, and there are reasons to dream. 

Some think that Lunin could have done more, especially in that action where Bernardo Silva surprised everyone at the white coliseum with a great shot at the start of the match. Today, and on the day after at Valdebebas, Thibaut was adamant when asked for his opinion. A total balance when reviewing such a play.

Another Perspective

“It’s more complicated than it looks. As soon as the ball hits the ground, it’s unstoppable because it’s right on top of you,” Courtois said, according to Defensa Central. For the Belgian, the barrier is the key reason we saw the 0-1 so early.

Added to this is the movement of Vinicius and, of course, the merit that Silva has in the action. There is total confidence in Lunin for the future and above all, the feeling that they managed well against a City that could only score through great goals. Andriy has everyone’s confidence for the battle at the Etihad.
