Courtois “A Doubt For Manchester City Clash”

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is reportedly ‘doubtful’ to play against Manchester City in the Champions League next week after limping off after the shock defeat by Betis.

The Belgian shot stopper is set to have tests on his left leg on Tuesday to discover how serious his injury is, according to Spanish outlet AS, who say he must wait an extra day to be looked at ‘due to inflammation’ in the area.

Madrid next play against at home against Eibar on Friday night before travelling to the Etihad to face City, and he will be a question mark for both games.

Real Madrid With Massive Clasico Win

El Clasico In USA 2020

Real Madrid have returned to the top of La Liga thanks to a late 2-0 win over rivals Barcelona in tight El Clasico clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Vinicius Junior and Mariano Diaz’s goals took them a point clear of their bitter rivals at the top of the Liga table and gave them the better head-to-head record, which could be crucial in such a tight title race.

Certainly, there is little to choose between the two teams, as Sunday’s game showed. This entertaining, end-to-end battle at the Santiago Bernabeu between two clearly flawed teams could have gone either way.

Barcelona Stay Top After 0-0 El Clasico Draw

Camp Nou

Barcelona and Real Madrid were unable to find a breakthrough as their anticipated El Clasico clash ended 0-0 at the Camp Nou.

The stalemate is the first time a game between the two sides has ended goalless since 2002, a run of 49 games in all competitions between the two great rivals.

The visitors dominated the opening stages, with Karim Benzema bringing a save from Marc Ter Stegen and Gerard Pique clearing Casemiro’s header off the line in a frantic opening.

Barcelona improved as the half wore on, with Sergio Ramos clearing a scuffed shot from Messi off the line, and Jordi Alba wasting a great chance went put through by the Barca skipper.

But, according to Spanish newspaper Marca, PSG are having difficulty managing Mbappe’s ambitions and are worried about his attitude in recent games.

Mbappe was substituted off by PSG coach Thomas Tuchel in their last two Ligue 1 fixtures against Nantes and Montpellier, reacting badly on both occasions.
