After a week, Courtois was sent to Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan. On the 25th of August, he made his Atletico debut against Vitoria de Guimaraes in the UEFA Europa League, scoring a 4-0 victory. He made his La Liga debut three days later with a 0-0 draw against Osasuna at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.
