The FC Barcelona premièred the Champions 2019-20 this Tuesday, and in the party of the return of Leo Messi, the protagonist was Marc-André ter Stegen. With the Argentinian of turn after an injury but far of his best moment of form, the one who shined in his country was the germano, that turned into a pillar for the Catalans in a night in which it frustrated to an insistent Borussia Dortmund, that had to conform with a tie without goals.

The one of Mönchengladbach gave an authentic recital in the Signal Iduna Park, where even stopped a penalti. Marco Reus, the greater victim by his unemployed -the face to face in the maximum penalty also went for the guardameta- will dream a few days with his compatriot, ex mate and fellow, because every time that had a finish frank to goal, here appeared with total security.

And it is that little by little and in silence, the effectiveness of the Barcelona from the eleven metres is increasing. The last triumphs of the German in this speciality have left his statistics in 11 wrong launchings of 41 tried, what means that 26,8% do not surpass the wall. That is to say, that, roughly, a chamber finish in celebration barcelonista, since it has denied a so much to the rival.

This attainment improves notably in the Champions League, where the percentage elevates to 66,6%. Of the data mentioned, six shots were in the European competition and four of them toparon with the cancerbero, the last of them in the commitment in Germany. Recently more than a week, in front of Osasuna, Roberto Torres had surpassed to the archer culé, but this time Reus carry another disappointment.

Ter Stegen Wants to improve his registers in LaLiga

In spite of his tarpaulin, Ter Stegen no for to grow and wants to follow doing it, because the ambition is one of his signals of identity. Of him it has praised his soltura in the game of feet and some reflections that turn him into all an expert, but the true is that to his 27 years can affirm without any doubt that is in the podium of the best goalkeepers of the planet. It is complete and totally reliable.

Now, the crack pretends to improve his leaf of service in LaLiga, where for his misfortune, the team has not attained to avoid the borrones. In four days still does not explain a goal to zero, whereas the first of the course arrived in Europe without a victory of the hand. The next appointment is with the Granada in the Stadium of the Cármenes, and the ex of the Borussia expects to carry three points... Without any goal in his pigeonhole.
