“It was the worst moment of my career.

When you make the first one you focus and then I made an effort against Man, Salah… Nobody was going to get in the way of my desire to win the Champions League”, confessed the goalkeeper, the architect with his 9 saves! of the victory. Several of them to Salah.
With a hand down and coming from behind in the first half and with a stretch to a shot with his left foot and with one foot on a hanging ball that the Egyptian pushed down the line in the second, the Belgian was a wall. In minute 81, ‘Mo’ invented a formidable chance with a control on the run… which Courtois cleared! He riddled him with shots (five) and could not beat him, again running out of ‘Orejona’.
