The 2023 Champions League final will be played without Real Madrid. Winners of the last edition, the Merengue of Carlo Ancelotti lost heavily on Wednesday evening on the lawn of Manchester City (0-4), a loss synonymous with elimination while the first leg had ended with a score of parity at Santiago-Bernabeu (1-1).

Author of several stops before the double of Bernardo Silva, in particular against the Norwegian striker Erling Haaland who remained silent despite the Mancunian demonstration, Thibaut Courtois will have postponed the deadline for a time before cracking. After the match, the Belgian goalkeeper agreed to appear before the journalists. The moment chosen by the last bastion of the Casa Blanca to analyze without concession the course of the meeting.

The Red Devil considers the qualification of Kevin De Bruyne’s partners to be indisputable, while explaining what his teammates lacked. “They pressed us a lot from the start, without letting us go out with the ball and they put a lot of people to lock us in our area (…) They felt very comfortable and they scored. We struggled to get into the game.”

“A very hard defeat”

“We have to review the images because it is not easy to see the match from the cages. We took a long time to make mistakes, the second balls were for them and we missed a lot of easy passes (…) The way of losing was the worst. You can lose a match in extra time or on penalties, 2-1 or 1-0. It can hurt if we gave everything on the pitch. But it is a very hard defeat. We should be proud of the path we have taken so far. It’s hard to fall before the final, but we lost against a great team. In the Premier League, they are unstoppable. It wasn’t our best game and if we’re not at our best, here’s what happens.

Dislodged from the Spanish championship by FC Barcelona, ​​Karim Benzema’s teammates only saved their season thanks to the King’s Cup.
