UCL: Thibaut Courtois Makes Honest Confession After Real Madrid Knocked Out Chelsea

Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has made an honest confession after his side knocked out Chelsea from the Champions League quarter-final stage on Tuesday night.

Real Madrid lost 3-2 against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-final second leg tie last night at Santiago Bernabeu.

But the Los Blancos qualified for the Champions League semi-final on a 5-4 aggregate win, having won the first leg 3-1 last week at Stamford Bridge.

Mason Mount gave Thomas Tuchel’s side hope with an early strike and Antonio Rudiger made it 2-0 shortly after half-time.

Chelsea were going through when Timo Werner added a third with 15 minutes remaining, but Madrid responded through Rodrygo’s goal following a stunning pass from Luka Modric.

The match entered extra-time, and Karim Benzema, who scored a hat-trick in the first leg, headed the decisive goal in the 96th minute to send Real Madrid through to the last-4 on a 5-4 aggregate win.

And Courtois, a former Chelsea shot-stopper, admitted that the Blues were the better team on Tuesday.

The Belgium international said at his post-match press conference: “We weren’t lucky, but it’s true that they were the better team.”

“We ultimately won the tie,” he added.
