Many Real Madrid fans have lamented goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after the 13-time European champions could only salvage a point versus Club Brugge in the Champions League.
Will Zinedine Zidane last the season at Real Madrid?
The goalkeeper was taken off at half-time after Emannuel Dennis, 21, scored twice past the Belgian for the Belgian side.
The Bernabeu was stunned at half-time but thankfully some words from Zinedine Zidane looked to have done the trick – but it wasn’t enough to win them the match.
Sergio Ramos got the scores level thanks to a header which had to be checked by VAR, and with five minutes to go Ruud Vormer was sent packing for Brugge after bringing down Vinicius Junior.
It was from the resulting free-kick that Madrid levelled, with Casemiro nodding home the ball from Toni Kroos to share the points.
Madrid have now only amassed one point from their opening two games after they were battered 3-0 in France by a Paris Saint-Germain side missing their three forward superstars in Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.
Here are some of the responses below to Real’s result:
What did Chelsea do to both Hazard and Courtois before sending them to us?
It's like they forgot how to play football
