The performance of Thibaut Courtois against the Liverpool was the summary of what has been the guardameta Belgian in this season: a wall under the three sticks of the Real Madrid. It has turned into one of the big figures of the season and the big protagonist of the final of the Champions League 2022. It carried the 'MVP' of the night after a performance soberbia in which it avoided the goal of the 'reds' in more than five occasions. It put him the bolt to his arch and frustrated, one and again, to the attackers of the English picture.

The Real Madrid has a lot that appreciate him to the guardameta, the one who in the previous had mentioned that "now it is in the correct side of the history". It did not make a mistake and engrandeció the numbers of this season. Mohamed Salah will dream with him, probably, after denying him the goal in an infinity of occasions, even in the one against one.

It appeared in countless occasions to show that it is the goalkeeper more in shape of all Europe and that, no only pganará probably the recognitions to Better Goalkeeper of the year, but also colará in the list of the best footballers of the year. It was the 'culprit' that the Madrid resisted the pressure in the first minutes and appeared in several opportunities to put the bolt in his goal.

First it diverted to corner a shot point-blank of Mohamed Salah and afterwards for blocar to two times a finish at first of the Egyptian after a pass backwards of Sadio Mané. It went back to appear to pull and touch with the yolks the balloon after a shot of the Senegalese that finish hitting in the crash.

Second brutal part

After the goal of Vinícius with which opened the marker, the Liverpool tightened and was very near to reach the goal, but appeared Courtois to save to his: Mohamed Salah outlined in the frontal, found hollow and finished, but the guardameta appeared of way milagrosa to take out the hand and avoid the tie. The put Belgian was having a night of stars and took out 'in extremis' a shot of the 'pharaoh' in the second stick. To fault of 10', the '1' madridista avoided the goal after a refuse that almost him colaba in the goal.
