Real's fixture against Frankfurt was set up following last season's heroics in the Champions League.
They beat Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in the final to claim their 14th European title.
Courtois dropped one of the greatest goalkeeping performances to stop Jurgen Klopp's team from scoring.

Speaking after his team's victory in Paris, Courtois spoke about the respect he deserves following his brilliant showing in goal.
"I saw a lot of tweets saying I would get humbled," said the 30-year-old.
"It was the other way round. Today I needed to win a final - for my career, for all the hard work, to put respect on my name because I don’t think I have enough respect, especially England. I saw a lot of criticism that I was not good enough or whatever."
Courtois is set to start Real's opening game of the new La Liga season as they begin the defence of their title at Almeria on Sunday.
