Speaking after the match, Courtois explained how he got to make that promminent save.
“Obviously he shoots a lot of penalties, so it’s hard to guess right,” he told BT Sport.
“He missed a few on this side, so I think it was obvious he was going to the left. Maybe to the middle, he scored one against Leipzig.
“I just said ‘okay, we’ll go left’, and I had a good save.”
