Especially with a penalty on Karim Benzema that the referee did not point out and of which neither WHERE. Unlike the action of Carvajal, the maximum penalty was not indicated.
Thibaut Courtois, at the end of the game and on the Movistar + microphones, he showed the impressions of the dressing room after ending his winning streak that they had been chaining since the victory against the Seville. The Belgian goalkeeper stressed that the result was “a shame”. “We leave frustrated because they are two points that escape us, “he said.

Courtois also pointed out the error of the referee. “Is not correct whistle a penalty and the other does not “, although he asked for more attention in the game because the members of the merengue squad should not be” so aware of that “because” they are plays that happen “.
However, the merengue goalkeeper was sincere: “It seems to me a light penalty, little grabs that are always in the area.” For Courtois, “there are referees who like to whistle that.” “It also happened to us against Barça“recalled the Belgian goalkeeper. The fact of pointing one and the other not,” is not correct.
Regarding the result, Courtois congratulated his counterpart in Elche and he stressed that there was not “an excess of confidence” on the part of Real Madrid. The Elche team defended “with two very close lines” and their goalkeeper “was very good in two or three actions.” Therefore, the white team must look forward to maintain the good streak.

Courtois asks “to continue like this” and already looks at the duel against him Celtic on a day that is expected to be a “complicated” match for which the Real Madrid players will have to continue working.

Since they beat Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán, the team trained by Zidane only knew what it was to win. And to teams as complicated as the current leader of La Liga, the Atlético de Madrid. In addition, in this time the first position in Champions League and the second position in the domestic competition has been reaffirmed.
