Courtois to start for Madrid in Bilbao

Thibaut Courtois will retain his place in Real Madrid’s starting line-up for the weekend clash at Athletic Club Bilbao, according to Marca.

The Belgian international joined the European champions in a €35m deal last month but Keylor Navas retained his place for the first three competitive matches this season.

The Costa Rican played against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup before keeping his place for the opening league fixtures against Getafe and Girona.

Courtois then started the league fixture against Leganes before the international break, while it is possible the two will be switched again when the Champions League restarts next week.
