Real Madrid keeper Courtois on victory at Chelsea: We could’ve scored two more

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says the players were proud of their Champions League win at Chelsea.

Real lead the quarterfinal tie 3-1 on aggregate thanks to a hat-trick from Karim Benzema.

Courtois said, “It’s a good victory at a ground that’s always difficult to come to. We started well against a team who are very intense. We created chances – hit the crossbar, then scored two goals, then we missed two others. Their goal was a pity – I managed to get a touch but not well enough to stop it but then we started the second half directly with a goal.

“We played the game our way [which was] to have the ball, invite them to press us high … We had space and confidence in our football to play the ball through their press and we created a lot of danger that way.

“We can’t think it’s done. Football is like this – an early goal from them can get them back in the game. We have to play our game with our fans pushing us on like against Paris and play as if we were level and needing to win the game.”
