Barely a day after Real's humiliating 5-1 defeat, Lopetegui was sacked.

Thibaut Courtois is Solari's choice to play in goal for Real Madrid in the Champions League match away to Viktoria Plzen, thus confirming his decision to use just one goalkeeper for the club's two biggest competitions, unlike Julen Lopetegui.

Temporary coach of Real Madrid, Argentinian former player Santiago Solari, attends a press conference at the Ciudad Real Madrid facilities on October 30, 2018 in Madrid, Spain.

"For me, he's been the best coach I've ever had, unfortunately he lacked that hint of fortune to continue with us", he told reporters (via Marca).

"His way of looking at football, of handling the squad, of being there for the players... that's something I share, it's the way I see football as well".

"I said it before he arrived at Real Madrid, I'm still saying it now he´s gone, and I will keep saying it until I have a coach that's better than him".

He added in an interview with TVE: "We're not going through a good moment, that's clear, but we also struggled at the start of previous year and ended up winning a third successive Champions League, which is something historic".

Real Madrid took a huge step towards clinching a spot in the Champions League knockout stage on Wednesday with a 5-0 rout of Viktoria Plzen as Karim Benzema scored two of four first-half goals for the Spanish giants.
