Ajax vs Real Madrid: Courtois: Now Real Madrid are playing well, other teams are more afraid
Ajax vs Real Madrid Happy with upturn in form
Real Madrid have managed to recover their form and Thibaut Courtois has indicated that they intimidate their rivals more than they used to do several weeks ago.
The Belgium international has claimed that Los Blancos will compete in all three competitions they are currently in, aiming to go all the way and win each trophy.
“I notice that now they see that it is harder to win us,” Courtois told the press.
“In October we had a very bad month and now they see that we are playing well and they are more afraid of us.
“We are here to fight for everything, [including] the Copa del Rey, LaLiga Santander until the last day and to get as far as possible in the Champions League.
“When you play at Real Madrid you play to win everything.”
“Ajax are a great team, as they have bought Daley Blind and Dusan Tadic, and already had great players like Hakim Ziyech, Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong,” Courtois added.
“They know how to play football and we have to be careful with them.
“It’s going to be a very tough game and we have to concentrate.
“We have experience and we know that we have to give everything, and no player will think that tomorrow will be an easy game.”
“I like VAR, as in the World Cup we had a very good experience,” Courtois noted.
“In Spain too and there are times that if the rules are not clear you can’t intervene, only in clear errors.
“It is there to help, although sometimes it will go against you, but VAR is necessary to make football fairer.”
