Real Madrid had Thibaut Courtois' excellent saves to thank for salvaging a point in a battling 0-0 draw versus Getafe in La Liga.

The goalkeeper has been one of the best in the division this season and once again he was in fine form as a Madrid team down to the bare bones of their first team squad earned what could be a good point

But who else performed well?

✔️ Rodrygo: 5.9

While Vinicius Jr has moved to the next level of late, Rodrygo is still playing catch-up a little, and that was reflected in another frustrating, inconsistent performance here.

Both he and Marco Asensio couldn't provide the type of incision necessary to create any clear chances and it was no surprise to see him replaced on 65 minutes with Madrid failing to look threatening.

⭐ Thibaut Courtois: 8.2

After a difficult first season in Spain, Courtois has truly moved back among the elite goalkeepers in 2020/21 and once again he saved his side.

Courtois made six saves in total throughout the contest, some of them routine, but some made to look easily as a result of his sound positioning.

He was excellent in midweek against Liverpool and his continued exploits are helping Madrid remain in the title race - but only just.
