As Real Madrid currently prepare for the Champions League final against Liverpool, Carlo Ancelotti obviously must have his team ready for all possible scenarios in the match.
So according to Defensa Central, the manager already works on a ‘secret weapon’ in case the game against the Reds goes to penalties.
That’s the potential use of goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, who featured against Cadiz at the weekend, making his fourth appearance of the season.
The outlet makes it clear Ancelotti has no doubts that Thibaut Courtois will start against Liverpool and will play for the 90 minutes plus potential extra time. However, in case the match goes beyond that, the Ukranian may be used.
Defensa Central points out Lunin is a ‘specialist’ when it comes to penalties, having saved one from Alvaro Negredo at the weekend.
Even though he’s expected to leave Real Madrid this summer looking for more minutes, he may still be used against Liverpool in his last game at the club.
