SILENT HERO OF THE CULÉS
Ter Stegen, in anthology mode: The hero with Barça gloves
Marc-André ter Stegen is having a dream season with FC Barcelona in which, in addition to recovering his best version under the three sticks, he has become the team's anchor
Marc-André ter Stegen has dressed of silent hero in what it goes of season for the FC Barcelona. It goes out to paradón milagroso by party and has turned into one of the players more determinants on the terrain of game. Against the Real Sociedad, in the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey, went back to appear to give a life 'extra' to the culés and 'sentenced' the party beside the goal of Ousmane Dembélé.
It is not the first time that happens, but yes a 'consequence' of the confidence that has in this season. The guardameta of Mönchengladbach, after several courses in which it had remained discussed and even arrived to debate his continuity in the Spotify Camp Nou, is showing of which wood is fact and, especially, justifying the inagotable confidence that have given him at all times in the Barça.
It has played 25 parties in what it goes of season and his importance inside the plans of Xavi Hernández has gone 'in crescendo' split to party, especially in the national tournaments in which it has turned into a wall inquebrantable for the rival players. In LaLiga registers the most impressive numbers: 17 presences, six goals fit (0.35 by party) and 34 stops (2.00 by party).
It has given continuity to these good feelings so much in the Supercopa of Spain as in his debut in the Glass of Rey. In Saudi Arabia was in two parties, with two goals fit (one in each one) and ten stops made (went out to 5 five by party), in addition to his unforgettable performance in the batch of penaltis against the Real Betis, in which it detained two launchings to give the note to the final to the Barcelona.
In Glass, played against the Real Sociedad and signed two stops, without having fit. His only 'brown' has been in the Champions League, but was victim of a Barça that was very far of his best defensive version. It played the five first crashes of the phase of groups, in which it fit ten so many (two by parties) and cut across thirteen shots (2.60 by clash). A total of 25 presentations, 19 targets against and 59 stops.
Hero without layer
Ter Stegen Has chosen the gloves to be the hero of the Barça. They are importantísimos the goals that has annotated Robert Lewandowski (22 in 24 parties) or the decisive that has gone back Ousmane Dembélé in this season, as well as the magic from the centre of the field that have 'caused' Pedri or Gavi, but behind all this is the figure of a guardameta that, from already, is signing his candidature to be, again, between the best of the world.
