Courtois beats Resino’s record

Thibaut Courtois broke a second of Abel Resino’s goalkeeping records yesterday, just at Resino watched on as Coach of opponents Celta Vigo.

The Belgian youngster surpassed Resino’s club record tally of 613 minutes during Wednesday evening’s 3-1 win at Balaidos to become the ‘keeper to have not conceded a goal away from home in La Liga for Atleti.

Augusto Fernandez’ late strike for Celta set the new record for Courtois at 681 minutes, with Resino present as the Galicians’ Coach on the night too.

Courtois earlier this season surpassed Resino’s record for minutes without conceding a goal in the League at the Vicente Calderon, when he went 819 without conceding earlier this season.

Resino held both the home and away records for Atleti from the 1990-91 campaign.
