Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 02/10/2019

The main reason why Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was substituted at the end of the first half in the Champions League clash against Club Brugge has been revealed.

Real Madrid conceded two goals in the opening 45 minutes and after the break, Alphonse Areola was thrown in for the fumbling shot-stopper but it was revealed that Courtois felt ill with stomach problems, after being whistled at from Los Blancos' supporters following Brugge's second goal.
