Carlo Ancelotti offers Thibaut Courtois injury return update

Thibauts Courtois of Real Madrid trains at Valdebebas training ground on March 13, 2024 in Madrid, Spain. 

Real Madrid star goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois tore his ACL before the season even started, leading the club to acquire Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan from Chelsea.

However, Real Madrid ended up getting the perfect Courtois replacement, even though it wasn’t Kepa. Young backup Andriy Lunin first showed his potential at the end of the 2021/22 season with LaLiga already won, and he turned up his performances for the club in 2023/24 with Courtois injured.

Lunin has been one of the best goalkeepers in European football this season, coming up big for Real Madrid in their second leg elimination of Manchester City in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid fans have felt safe with Lunin in goal, but they have been waiting for Courtois’ return, which was on the horizon in April before a setback.

Now, Carlo Ancelotti has informed reporters that Thibaut Courtois “feels good” and is in line to potentially return to the Real Madrid lineup against Cadiz in LaLiga.

The match between Real Madrid and Cadiz will actually take place after the first leg of the Champions League semifinals against Bayern Munich. Real face Bayern on Tuesday, April 30, and the Cadiz game will be the following weekend on May 4.

While Real Madrid can beat Bayern Munich or any other opponent with Lunin, who is world-class in his own right, in goal, Courtois is literally the best goalkeeper in the world and on another level entirely. He has still been missed.
