The eyes of the football world were on PSG-Real Madrid on Tuesday evening. One meeting where our compatriot Thibaut Courtois particularly shone, despite a loss to Kylian Mbappe on a flash in stoppage time. During the second half, the Belgian goalkeeper notably intercepted a penalty kick taken by Lionel Messi, which earned him praise from all the press.
Question: Could the Argentine have done better? Demba ba thinks so. Following this decisive action, the former Chelsea player revealed that Courtois had a special technique on the penalty spot. “Just for the record, an analysis done by the guys at Chelsea in 2014 before the Champions League semi-final showed us Courteo is still diving on the cross side of the shot. Obviously that hasn’t changed!” He wrote on Twitter.
