Marc-André ter Stegen saved to the FC Barcelona this Tuesday in Saint Paolo, with more than a save that prevented to the ones of Gattuso add more than a goal in the marker
This Barça has to him a lot to Ter Stegen, and to measure that happen the parties the debt increases . The ones of Quique Setién, although they did not play a bad party in Saint Paolo, went back to suffer more than the owed in defence and the guardameta German was essential to receive only a goal in the marker, since they could have been several more the targets fit.
Little it could do Ter Stegen to avoid the initial goal of Dries Mertens, but in the second half saved occasions very clear. A shot escorado of Insigne, with thread and raso, went the first warning after the goal of the tie of Antoine Griezmann. Shortly after it arrived the clearest opportunity for the Naples: a hand manually between Alley and Ter Stegen that the germano won, going out very fast of the goal to bale out spaces.
The shot of the attacker Spanish crashed in the body of Ter Stegen and the balloon left to corner, in front of the incredulity of the fans napolitanos that already sang the goal. Finally, another sample of the winning attitude of the Barcelona archer could see in the injury time, specifically when the electronic marked the minute 94 and some seconds.
The Naples had achieved a corner in favour, surely the last occasion of the party that went to have, after an action by the left between Insigne and Mario Rui. The centre of Insigne cleared it Semedo to corner and the Portuguese of the Barça, far to be slope of the kickoff, went back of backs to calm step, until it listened the cry of Ter Stegen.
The touch of attention of Ter Stegen
The cancerbero culé did not want that to the Barcelona happened him the same that him sucedió in Liverpool with Trent Alexander-Arnold, and warned to Semedo of the possibility of a kickoff in short. Then the side of the Barça turned immediately and shortened space to cover to Rui, that was biased already to associate with Insigne in short for pillar to the saga culé desprevenida.
Ter Stegen, in definite, no only is important by his unemployed (that they are many) but also by the security that contributes to the team so much in defence as in the exit of balloon. In this Champions League his performances were key for 'save' to the Barça in the phase of groups in front of Dortmund, Inter of Milan and Slavia of Prague, especially far of the Camp Nou. Without him, probably the blaugrana already would be deleted...
