It's about facts, not words. Before Borussia Dortmund, Marc-André ter Stegen presented his best arguments to discuss the ownership of Manuel Neuer in the goal of the German team. Just when he has uncovered his discomfort at being relegated to the substitution and the Bayern goalkeeper has publicly shaved his behavior accusing him of lack of companionship. "Everyone knows what I am capable of," said the Barcelona goalkeeper at the Movistar Champions League microphone as soon as the game was over.
"I only look at myself, what I want is to always be 100 percent and it has been a good opportunity to prove it," said a Ter Stegen who signed several great stops. Among them, one to a penalty shootout by Marco Reus . "It's hard to study him, he always changes the way he throws them. I was guided by a feeling I had and I'm very happy to have stopped him," he revealed.
"We have been complicated, but fortunately Marc has been very good. Although in the end we have mastered again, we missed the last pass," analyzed Ernesto Valverde . "They have had a penalty, a ball to the stick ... And we have suffered. We had to translate the possession into verticality. In the end, we managed to put them a little behind, especially, thanks to Marc. What we like is to convert the game that We sometimes generate a goal. In the end, it's about that. The normal thing is that the one who believes most will end up winning, but this time the balance was unbalanced and balanced by our goalkeeper, "he added.
"When we are well adjusted in the pressure, we are doing well, we are coordinated, and generally we steal a lot of play in the opposite field. This time it has not been that way and in the end we almost had to play in our own half of the pitch. It is about continuing insisting, because when we squeeze and do it well, we are able to steal in his field, "insisted the Barcelona coach.
Jordi Alba's injury
The game, despite the tie and injury of Jordi Alba , who on Wednesday will undergo medical tests to know the extent of his illness, also left good news: the return of Leo Messi. "It was his first 30 minutes, Luis' first full game ... We need the front players to play together and get to know each other too. It's a first step," Valverde dropped in Movistar Champions League. An opinion that was fully shared by Antoine Griezmann . "It's my second month at Barça, I have to get used to the movements of Leo and Luis and they, to mine," said the Frenchman.
Of course, he also praised Ter Stegen's great performance, but not forgetting to put his finger on the sore. "Marc stopped a penalty and made other important stops, but we did not knock on the door and we must improve that," said the former rojiblanco. "Outside it is more complicated, the opponent presses more, has more confidence and it is difficult for us to create occasions. These are things that need improvement, see what we do wrong and work on it," he said.
