Thibaut Courtois Explains His Penalty Save Against Messi | Read
Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has explained how it was easy for him to stop Lionel Messi's penalty against Paris Saint Germain.
The Belgian who was almost perfect in the UEFA Champions League game against PSG confirmed in the post-match conference with RMC Sport, that he had studied where Messi always places his penalty.
I studied it, he had missed once with Barca against Atletico but it hit the bar and it seems to me that he has missed one with Paris on the right side. He put it there against Bruges and again against Nice at the Coupe de France so I figured I should dive to the left.
He also spoke about Messi having not scored against him while in goal for Real Madrid.
He has not scored a lot against me but u against these great players, Leo, Neymar, Di Maria, you have always got to be careful.
The goalkeeper made nine saves during the game but was beaten by Kylian Mbappe in the 93rd minute of the game. PSG go into the second leg with a 1-0 advantage.
