Also, on Wednesday (April 5), Real Madrid plays Barcelona away in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal.
They are behind 1-0 from the first game. Courtois got hurt again during Belgium’s 3-0 win over Sweden on Friday. This is the third time this season that he has been damaged. Courtois finished the game, but he went back to Madrid two days later. Because he was still having trouble with his adductor.
The former Chelsea player is going to get additional testing on Monday, March 27. These examinations should show how bad his condition is. Andriy Lunin is anticipated to fill in for him while he is away.
