In less than 2 weeks, Real Madrid will play in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. Experts and fans alike are still debating who should play in the decisive match of the most prestigious European competition - the highly experienced Courtois or Lunin, who has adequately replaced the Belgian and has become a co-creator of this year's achievements of Madrid.

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is trying not to make a mistake with the choice of goalkeeper, but even the numbers do not help him make the final decision.

According to Relevo, among all the goalkeepers in the top 5 European leagues who played at least 900 minutes in all competitions in 2023-2024, Lunin has the tenth highest save percentage (76.52%). Almost the same percentage as Courtois' in 2022-2023 (76.44%) and slightly lower than the Belgian's in the 2021-2022 season (77.44%). The number of shots saved was also similar: 10.79 per 90 minutes for Lunin and 11.31 for Courtois.

In addition, last season Courtois conceded 56 goals out of 68 expected (18%). Instead, Lunin's save percentage was 23% - 32 goals scored out of a potential 41.

Thus, Courtois' main advantage is his status and experience - many still remember the 2022 final against Liverpool, in which the Belgian showed an exceptional performance, making nine saves.

As a reminder, the duel between Real Madrid and Borussia D will take place on 1 June at Wembley.
