The Belgian goalie doesn’t expect to miss long, as per Spanish reports that claim Courtois is expected to be in good shape to play Barcelona during the Clasico on 16 October.

Ukranian goalkeeper Andrei Lunin could take over from Courtois in the near-term. Lunin has played in five games in the Ukranian club since his move the club from Zorya Luhansk in 2018.


Prior to the Clasico Real Madrid play Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday, go to Getafe to play in La Liga, and then play Shakhtar once more in Poland which is in which the Ukranian team’s Champions League group games are playing due to the Russian invasion.
