Real Madrid's goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois of Belgium, will be afraid to take a weighted kick against Liverpool, should his team need them in the Champions League final in football, on Saturday in Paris.

Courtois has a wealth of penalty or penalties, stopping three of the five kicks he has faced this season, including one for Argentina's Lionel Messi, the seven-time world MVP, during Paris Saint-Germain's clash with France in the first leg of the round of 16 continental competition.

It was a defining moment, with Real overturning their deficit against Saint-Germain to win the 3-2 two games.

  1. Courtois, who had previously defended Chelsea's colours before joining Real Madrid
  2. said he would do his job in the woods at the Liverpool meeting
  3. adding that he was ready to take over the penalty shootout or a shootout if asked to do so.

"I remember in the preparations for the season with Chelsea against Paris Saint-Germain I scored a kick, and in the Community Shield against Arsenal I a wasted another."

The Belgium international guard continued: "Conte (his former coach at Chelsea) put me there because he knows my ability to execute the kicks well, but it seems that standing on that point, at an important moment, looks different."

  • "Of course I wouldn't be between the first five (two shootout shots if the Real vs Liverpool game arrived for the shootout), but maybe then
  • if you need to shoot, you should shoot. I'm not afraid of that. It's a moment to shine ".
  • The 30 "s son completed our (penalty shootout) stake against Atletico Madrid in the Super Cup years ago when a kick was cleared. This season I repelled three. "

Real Madrid are looking to boost their record of 13 Champions League titles, with Liverpool wishing to claim the trophy for the seventh time.
