Sunday was marked by a funny scene in La Liga (2-3) between Sevilla FC and Real Madrid. Fifteen minutes from the end, Thibaut Courtois took advantage of interference by the VAR to speak quietly with the Andalusian supporters behind his goal.
A moment of peace in the heart of a stressful evening. The clash at the top between Sevilla FC and Real Madrid sparked an original scene during the 32nd day of La Liga (2-3) on Sunday. A quarter of an hour from the end, the referee in charge of VAR intervened to deny a goal to Vinicius Jr., guilty of a hand fault. What causes a short interruption, during which Thibaut Courtois gives himself a moment of rest at the Sánchez-Pizzuan Stadium.
The Merengue goalkeeper (then 2-1 behind) sat on the scoreboard to chat with Andalusian supporters behind his goal. A smiling and cordial exchange was shared on the network by journalist Sid Lowe, who works exclusively for The Guardian and ESPN.
Real Madrid will win its 35th title
At the end of a game with twists and turns, Real won at Sevilla’s Lair, thanks to a new saving goal from Karim Benzema in extra time. An extreme success that allows the White House to move toward the 35th title in its history. Carlo Ancelotti’s players are now 15 points ahead of Barca (which are two games short) and Sevilla FC. Six days after the finish, the suspense on the other side of the Pyrenees is over.
