Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has labelled Los Blancos’ upcoming Champions League group stage encounter with Inter as a crucial match given their less than ideal start to their group stage campaign.
The reigning Spanish champions, who are the most successful side in the history of the competition, have picked up just one point from a possible six after two games played against two sides they very huge favourites to win over in Shakhtar Donetsk, who beat them 3-2, and Borussia Monchengladbach, who they drew 2-2 with.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are sitting bottom of the group B standings after two games played and they are to face Inter, who, like themselves, have not started as expected in the competition, at home then away in the next two group stage matches.
“The clash with Inter will be crucial. We don’t stop, we have to go on,” the Belgian national team shot-stopper explained in an interview with Real Madrid’s official channel.
This season the 28-year-old has made eight appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has conceded nine goals and kept three clean sheets.
