Courtois and Navas shouldn't be on the same team, even if it's as high profile a squad as Real Madrid - they're way too good to not to start every game.

Temporarily stymied as to what other squad could come even close to having such elite goalies. (The French national team when they had weirdo Barbez and Coupet?)

Wasn't Courtois Cech's understudy at Chelsea for quite a while? Though of course, he probably wasn't as good back then. I seem to remember Pagliuca and Buffon fighting over the Italy #1 jersey for quite a while in the early 00s. But you're right, there aren't many examples, especially in club football (for obvious reasons).
