Marca: Courtois to debut for Real Madrid against Milan
- The Belgian goalkeeper is expected to get some minutes against the Italians
- Real Madrid internationals will also return in action
Julen Lopetegui is determined to win the first title of the season against Atletico. Thus, the key players who have just returned to training will get match practice against Milan. Casemiro, Marcelo and Varane will enter the pitch at some point. The possible exception is Modric, who is back in training for a couple of days only. The game comes too early for him.
Thibaut Courtois, meanwhile, is expected to be given his Bernabeu debut at some point in the second half. The Belgian has arrived in good conditions and trained well. Keylor is likely to start the game.
Courtois is also buzzing to finally play for Los Blancos: "
I can't wait. I think everyone who comes to this club knows how high expectations are, but I'm ready for it," he said in his first interview as Real Madrid player. "I've been in the game a long time, I'm experienced and I know I am capable of rising to this challenge. I can't wait to start training with my teammates and playing games."
