LOAN WATCH: Chelsea keeper Courtois in doubt as Atletico Madrid prepare for Real

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is in danger of missing this weekend’s Spanish La Liga clash with rivals Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is in danger of missing this weekend’s Spanish La Liga clash with rivals Real Madrid.

The 20-year old Belgian, on a season-long loan from Chelsea, missed Wednesday night’s Copa del Rey win over Real Jaen because of a virus and may not come up for the trip to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Courtois has started 12 of the 13 league games this season as well as one other cup fixture whilst Sergio Asenjo has made one league appearance as well as starting all five Europa League games.
Last season at Real, Courtois was questionably sent off in the 21st minute for bringing down Karim Benzema in the area when Atletico led 1-0 courtesy of Adrian’s 15th minute opener. Atletico eventually lost 4-1.
