Star Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to miss the upcoming Real Madrid match against Spanish club Osasuna on Sunday. According to an official press release from the Spanish football team, the Red Devils goalkeeper is currently suffering from sciatica, a form of back pain.
It is not yet known how long Courtois will be out of action, but the keeper could potentially miss next week’s upcoming match against Ukrainian team Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League and Getafe in La Liga.
