“There wasn't much space but we kept a clean sheet and picked up a point", he added.
Real Madrid clinched a point against Osasuna on El Sadar and following the final whistle, Courtois discussed the team's efforts: "There wasn't much space, although from my position I wasn't best placed to comment on how we could improve offensively. But we kept a clean sheet and picked up a point".

"We wanted to win it because if you want to fight for the LaLiga title, you have to win at places like this. We have to keep going, there are still a lot of points to play for, the whole second round is yet to come".
"First things first, I'd like to say thank you to the people at Osasuna for getting the pitch ready enough to play the game. It's regrettable how LaLiga have treated us with the storm situation. It wasn't just that they made us play, but the runway was frozen yesterday as well. We can't head back tonight, possibly not tomorrow either and we might have to head straight down to play in Málaga".

Monumental effort to play
"We do what we are asked to do, so if we're told we lose three points if we don't come it means we have to travel. We've come here on roads covered in snow and you have to think about people's safety. We've got families. We're not puppets who have to play all the time. We made the effort today and were focussed on playing. You have to think about the trip and the logistics as well”.
