Marc-André ter Stegen was once again one of the important Barça players against Dortmund. The goalkeeper took two occasions of merit and confirmed his best year in Champions in terms of average stops
The FC Barcelona won to the Borussia Dortmund this Wednesday with Leo Messi like indisputable protagonist of the party. The Argentinian star marked only a goal, but also was the author of the two assistances for the so many of Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann. Besides, the '10' gave an exhibition of passes to the gap, dribblings, lacking, drivings... In definite, went back to do a worthy crash of the extraterrestrial that is.
But, in addition to the of Rosario, there was another Barcelona that without doing a lot of noise went back to be decisive for his. It treats , as almost always, of Marc-André ter Stegen. The German goalkeeper lived a calm night in the first time, but in the second went back to do gala of his reflections to save to the Barça in two very clear opportunities of the Borussia.
In the first, the culés still won 2-0 and the Dortmund was improving and approaching with more danger to the area. In one of these approaches, Julian Brandt planted in front of Ter Stegen, but the archer germano took out a hand milagrosa to avoid the so much of his compatriot. It had meant the 2-1 and the meeting could have complicated a lot for the interests barcelonistas.
In the another opportunity that took out the put blaugrana, went Jadon Sancho the one who, with 3-1 and with four minutes more discount by in front, tried recortar differences. The English, that shortly before had marked a golazo incredible, went back to test luck with another powerful shot arriving by the left, but found with Ter Stegen. The ex of the Mönchengladbach pulled and touched the just the balloon to divert it and that went to the crossbar, in place to finish inside his goal.
With this paradón, the guardameta Barcelona reached his best average of stops in Champions since it is in the Barcelona. It carries already 17 cut across in five meetings and promedia 3,5 in each one of them. Never there was promediado so many and alone Onana, of the Ajax, surpasses him in Europe. The ex canterano barcelonista carries 24 stops in five commitments, with six interventions in each one of them of average. Besides, only they have put him five goals, by the three that have marked him to the German.
The comparison with other goalkeepers of elite
After them, they appear porterazos of the quality of Thibaut Courtois, that carries nine stops in 5 crashes; Jan Oblak, with 11 in other 5; or Alisson, that only has stopped 5 in the same parties. The comparison between all they and Ter Stegen is tremenda, since the numbers of the germano are quite upper.
That the put of the Barça stop so much says, at the same time, a lot of him and very little of the Barcelona defence. If the international by Germany makes so many stops is because to the Barcelona are arriving him a lot and with a lot of ease in what it goes of Champions. It is rare not seeing two or three interventions of merit of Marc in each European meeting. The German did them against the Borussia and the Slavia in the gone and the turn, and also against the Inter. The culés have to improve a lot in this facet to win the 'Orejona' this course.
