Chelsea fans on Twitter celebrate Thibaut Courtois’s start at Real Madrid

Girona 1 – Real Madrid 4

Real Madrid picked up their second win of the new La Liga season on Sunday night at Girona.

Los Blancos, the reigning Champions League holders, beat Girona 4-1.

Girona took the lead through Borja Garcia atfter 17 minutes. But Madrid levelled in the 39th minute via a Sergio Ramos penalty.

In the second half, Karim Benzema cashed in with a brace. While Gareth Bale also found the target in the win.

Thibaut Courtois vs Keylor Navas

Real Madrid’s big summer signing has been landing Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.

However, in the opening weeks of the season, Courtois has been left on Julen Lopetegui’s bench.

Costa Rican international Keylor Navas has so far retained the starting spot for Madrid between the sticks.

And Navas was in superb form against Girona as he staked another claim to maintain the goalie position in the team.

It’s worth noting that Real Madrid’s Instagram account originally reported that Courtois would start against Girona.

Obviously that proved not to be the case.

Chelsea fans vs Thibaut Courtois

Thibaut Courtois didn’t leave Chelsea in a positive light.

Courtois baulked at signing a contract extension with the Blues. While in the final days fo his Stamford Bridge career, Courtois stayed away from the club’s training ground.

That’s created bad blood between Chelsea’s supporters and the Belgian number one.

With that in mind, Chelsea fans are enjoying seeing Courtois on the Real Madrid bench this season.
