Real Madrid haven’t scored in three matches in a row, something that never happened during Cristiano Ronaldo’s time at the club. Keylor Navas discussed the absence of the Portuguese forward in relation to this mini goal drought and admitted it could be having a negative effect. “Cristiano Ronaldo set the bar very high, that’s no secret,” he said. “You cannot cover the sun with one finger. “But it’s in the past now and we can’t live off that. “My teammates do the best they can and the goals will come.” The next match for Real Madrid will come away at Alaves this weekend, although Navas wasn’t sure if he’ll start or if Julen Lopetegui would put Thibaut Courtois back in goals. “I don’t know if I’ll play in Vitoria,” he told reporters. “You have to ask the coach about that. “But I’m always prepared to play. “We respect Lopetegui’s decisions with regards to the goalkeeping position.” In recent weeks, Courtois has been starting in LaLiga Santander and Navas has played in the Champions League, although it remains to be seen if it’ll continue that way.
