THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 30-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Belgium's 3-0 win over Sweden, as Domenico Tedesco won his first match as manager in style with Romelu Lukaku netting a hat-trick in the Euro 2024 qualifying opener.

But Courtois' injury comes as a concern for Madrid ahead of their Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Barcelona on Wednesday, April 5 and ahead of the Champions League quarter-final tie with the goalkeeper's former club Chelsea a week later.
