March 10, 2015 By Oscar Casanova Perches
The Belgian goalkeeper already reached a UCL final with Atletico Madrid. He felt good with how he played in the first leg,

He is usually the last man between a striker and the back of the net, and now days he is considered one of the best at his position. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois claimed that he is not afraid of Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of their UCL game on Wednesday.

At 22-years old, Courtois has shown the necessary skills to bench Petr Cech in many games. After a solid start with Chelsea and winning La Liga with Atletico Madrid last season, his credentials speak aren't questioned.

“No, I’m not afraid. I played against him three weeks ago and I played well. I hope to stop him again on Wednesday,” Courtois said.

The Belgian star already has World Cup experience under his belt. He knows Chelsea and PSG are among one the favorite teams to make it all the way to Berlin in the European competition.

“They are a team that can reach the final. To play them in the last 16 is very early in the completion. But that’s the way it is, “he added.

Courtois sees the 1-1 draw at Parc des Princes as something that could play in favor of Jose Mourinho’s team. But the team must play its game without waiting to see what Zlatan and his teammates have in store.

“We have to defend well, but we mustn’t go for the 0-0 because if we concede a goal, Paris will qualify by winning 1-0,” the goalkeeper said.

Last year, before the Belgian joined Chelsea, the English side eliminated the French team at the quarterfinal stage. Courtois made it all the way to the final with Atletico and lost against Real Madrid.
