The Belgian goalkeeper has suffered a Grade I injury to his left iliacus muscle. He will miss the league games against Betis and Sevilla.
Another probelm for Real Madrid and Solari. The club has issued a medical report concerning Thibaut Courtois who, finished Sunday's game against Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabéu apparently without any problems, and completed all of this week's training sessions ahead of tonight's Copa del Rey tie against Leganés. Courtois was due to make way for Keylor Navas this evening with Kike Casilla and Luca Zidane on the bench.
Keylor Navas gets new chance
However, the goalkeeper underwent tests today which detected a Grade I injury to his left iliacus muscle. It's not a serious injury, but according to Doctor González, who was consulted by AS, "he could face between 10 days and two weeks on the sidelines". That effectively leaves goalkeeping duties to Keylor Navas, who will defend the team's goal in both of the Copa del Rey legs as well as the league games against Betis and Sevilla.
