After the game, former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reacts to Los Blancos win over the Blues at the Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid goalkeeper and former Chelsea man Thibaut Courtois: It’s a good victory at a ground that’s always difficult to come to. We started well against a team who are very intense. We created chances, hit the crossbar, then scored two goals, then we missed two others.
“Their goal was a pity. I managed to get a touch but not well enough to stop it but then we started the second half directly with a goal.
“We can’t think it’s done. Football is like this, an early goal from them can get them back in the game. We have to play our game with our fans pushing us on like against Paris and play as if we were level and needing to win the game.”
