Thibaut Courtois believes Real Madrid don’t need January signings

Real also drew 0-0 in midweek at Barcelona but Sunday's result leaves Madrid on 37 points at the half-way stage of the season, two points off Barcelona who top the table on 39.

Beating Jan Oblak proved to be hard for Real Madrid in the first Derbi of the season, as he made some big saves to deny Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema.

With the likes of Karim Benzema and Luka Jovic not among the goals in the last two matches, manager Zinedine Zidane was quizzed whether the club will move in for a new striker in the upcoming January transfer window. "Bad luck and good goalkeepers, it's a bit of everything at the moment", Courtois said.

I don't have an explanation for why the ball doesn't want to go in.

"I feel sorry for the players". Nevertheless, an interesting game at Santiago Bernabeu. But now they find themselves two points behind Barcelona going into the Christmas break.

It was Real's third draw in a row, after 1-1 and 0-0 stalemates away to Valencia and Barca respectively.

Real Madrid continued for 180 consecutive minutes without scoring goals.

European champions Liverpool travel to Madrid in February for the Champions League first leg match and will have noted the commitment inspired by Atletico's feisty Argentine coach Diego Simeone. "The past is in the past", Madrid boss Zidane said as quoted by AS.

"But I was just as pleased to see him fighting for the win right at the end, when the team needed him".

"We had three or four chances, but this is football and there are runs".

Courtois was signed from Chelsea in the summer of 2018, around the same time when Ronaldo left for Juventus.
