The fear of Real Madrid supporters finally came to pass as it concerns the fitness of its first-choice goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.
The news was confirmed on the official website of Marca, a renowned football outlet that is based in Spain. According to reports from the Bernabeau, the decision was made to keep the Belgian out of the game after there was no real improvement in his condition.
Courtois has been suffering from sciatica since the end of last month and has not been able to train with his teammates. Lunin will occupy the Real Madrid goal in the first Clásico of the season. The Ukrainian goalkeeper has played the last four games for the white team, both against Shakhtar in the Champions League and Getafe and Osasuna in La Liga.
Real Madrid might also be without Antonio Rudiger who suffered an eye injury in the Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk.
