However, Courtois himself has now provided hope that he could make an appearance before the season comes to an end.

Losing Courtois at the start of the season was a major blow for Real Madrid. Kepa Arrizabalaga was signed as his replacement, but it is Andriy Lunin that is now the undisputed number one for Carlo Ancelotti.
