Once again in this Champions League, Marc-André ter Stegen won honours of 'saint' with his saves. In the first-half, starred until three saves against Slavia of Prague
Although Leo Messi put the party very of face with his goal in the minute 3 of party, the Slavia of Prague was improving with the step of the minutes and caused a lot of problems in the aledaños of the Barcelona goal. So many, that of not being by Ter Stegen the FC Barcelona would have gone with tables in the marker, or can that even underneath taking into account the easy that arrived the Czechs.
Three celestial stops of Ter Stegen saved to the FC Barcelona in the first time. First it went in the minute 19 when, after a shot raso and practically from the small area, the guardameta German reacted to time to take out the shot with the feet. Also it was very fast of reflections in the minute 36, when it went back to detain a shot from the interior of the area of one of the forwards of the Slavia.
And a minute afterwards, starred a big pulled to send to corner a shot of Olayinka. Three unemployed providenciales of the 'saint' of the Barça, that already saved to the culés in the Signal Iduna Park against the Borussia Dortmund, when detaining a penalti to Marco Reus and desbaratar multiple shots of the forwards germanos. Also, we remember, it completed a stellar performance against the Inter of Milan in the Camp Nou.
Well, by third day of Champions League consecutive, the Barça suffers backwards and has to thank him Ter Stegen. True is that it has improved defensivamente in the last parties, and that the Barça so only has fit two targets in the last five meetings. However, still there are too many lagoons backwards, and will have to solve if it wishes arrive far in this League of Champions.
If it wants to win the Champions, it is necessary to improve in defence
Europe does not forgive when they arrive the eliminatory direct. It remained showed in the Olympic of Rome and also in Anfield against the Liverpool, for mentioning so only the two last thumps of the FC Barcelona in the tournament. It will be necessary to follow improving in this appearance, and especially when they arrive rivals of entity as they are the Inter and the Dortmund. The modest Slavia of Prague, in fact, achieved empatar the party against the Barça in the minute 50 of party this Wednesday, what already is a clear sign that the Barça needs to be more concentrated in defence.
Because Ter Stegen is one of the best guardametas of the world, but will not be able to stop evermore. If the contrary players follow generating occasions of goal with ease, some shot will finish colando in the goal without that the put German can do at all. Here it is where Valverde will have to sort out and improve a defensive line that, although by names is of big quality, still leaves a lot of doubts.
