Rare Courtois mistake helps RB Leipzig into 2-0 lead against Real

RB Leipzig have taken a quickfire 2-0 lead in Germany over Real Madrid and it all started after a rare Thibaut Courtois mistake. 

For the first goal, the Real Madrid goalkeeper poorly dealt with a corner before Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol headed the ball into the net to give the German side the lead.

That boosted the home side’s confidence and they quickly added a second just five minutes later through Christopher Nkunku.
