Real arrive on the back of four La Liga wins and will jump above their opponents with a win. "It happens in football, it's a derby and a derby here in Madrid is always heated," Courtois said. "They'll whistle and shout, everything you would expect, it's part of football. I will always respect them. Now I'm playing for the other side."
