Thibaut Courtois

 “I don’t know if the penalty has been repeated because of Courtois or because someone enters the area, as happens in all games. We should be just as rigorous on every occasion,”

Vazquez told



"It was a complicated game, they got ahead very quickly, and although we turned it around, they equalized again and that hurt us.

"It was difficult for us to find our football, and Rayo is a complicated team that today has been very good.

"But they [the referee and the VAR] send Trejo to shoot again and in other games they don't, they should always be just as rigorous."
