The rival goalkeeper had an excellent game, the ball did not want to fly into his goal. There are fast players in the “Sheriff” squad, and this made life difficult for us. We were unable to succeed in pressing. Days like this happen.
Recently we scored very easily against Celta and Mallorca, and now we have lost, having scored one goal from the penalty spot. The opponent’s second goal was excellent, sometimes it happens, “- the club’s official website quotes Courtois as saying.
