When Thibaut Courtois moved to Real Madrid from Chelsea in 2018, it was seen as a controversial move, given his highly successful stint with Atletico Madrid.

Fast forward to now, and it would be fair to say that Real Madrid did well to get the Belgium international. Having pursued Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea- another former Atletico Madrid player- for some time, Los Blancos decided to address their shot-stopping issues by bringing in Courtois.

De Gea's form has dipped for Manchester United, while Chelsea's replacement for Courtois, Kepa Arrizabalaga, has not impressed. The Belgian goalkeeper, on the other hand, has been a vital player for Real Madrid.

A strong, composed shot-stopper, the 28-year-old has been a consistent presence in the backline for Real Madrid. This season, he has 7 clean sheets in 17 league games, with his side involved in another title race.

#1 Jan Oblak, Atletico Madrid

Arguably the best goalkeeper in world football right now, Jan Oblak is the epitome of consistency.

Atletico Madrid have always been renowned for their defensive stability under the management of Diego Simeone, and Oblak has been a vital factor for that.

The Slovenia international constantly impresses with his reflexes, concentration and composure.

Having joined Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2014, Oblak has made 278 appearances in all competitions and is now one of the leaders in the dressing room.

The 28-year-old, who has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea in the past, has kept 10 clean sheets in just 15 games so far, as Atletico Madrid sit at the top of the league table.
