Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has sustained a new injury, this time a ruptured internal meniscus in his right knee, which could see him miss both legs of the Champions League quarter-finals against Manchester City. Previously recovering from an ACL injury that kept him out for most of the season, Courtois had been expected to face City before this setback. With Courtois now ruled out for two months, Manchester City will face a Real Madrid side without their star goalkeeper in the upcoming matches.

Despite the absence of Thibaut Courtois, Manchester City will still face a tough challenge in the Champions League quarter-finals against Real Madrid. While Courtois’ understudy Andriy Lunin has been performing well, Real Madrid boasts quality across the board and City should not underestimate them. The matchup remains evenly-matched and both teams will need to bring their best to determine the outcome over the two legs, with City looking to avenge their defeat to Real Madrid last season.

The injury to Thibaut Courtois adds a layer of uncertainty to the upcoming clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid. Both teams will need to be at their best to secure a spot in the semi-finals, with City facing a resilient Real Madrid side despite the absence of their main goalkeeper. The outcome of the matchup remains unpredictable, with fans eagerly awaiting the showdown between these two European football giants.
