Real Madrid has the chance to play with their new goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, when they will meet with Girona in the second week of La Liga. The match will take place in Estadi Municipal de Montilivi, Sunday (08/26/2018).
Courtois didn't have an official match with Real Madrid. In the European Super Cup and La Liga first week, Julen Lopetegui still relies on Keylor Navas.
Real Madrid supporters have been waiting for Courtois. Therefore, Courtois has a heavy burden to prove himself at Los Blancos.
Real Madrid won against Getafe in the first week. Los Blancos won 2-0 with goals from Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale.
In the match against Girona, Real Madrid had a big chance to take three points. Lopetegui was able to bring out his best squad in the match.
The player who is confirmed to be unable to perform is Jesus Vallejo who suffered a hamstring injury.
Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are still the hopes of Real Madrid to gain goals. Real Madrid can prove that they can fight without Cristiano Ronaldo.
The last meeting between Real Madrid and Girona occurred in March. At that time, Real Madrid won with a score of 6 - 3. Cristiano Ronaldo scored four of the six goals scored by Los Blancos in the match.
