Barcelona's hopes for the "Super" title hang on the glove of Ter Stegen

Stegen shone remarkably in the meeting with Real Sociedad.


Barcelona meets Athletic Bilbao today in the final match of the Spanish Super Cup, and the Catalan’s hope may be hanging in the glove of his German goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, more than any other player in the team, including Lionel Messi, who has doubts about his readiness for the match.

In Messi's absence, Stegen wore the championship dress and led his team to the final match, after shining in the penalty shootout in the semi-final against Real Sociedad.

Barcelona hopes Messi will recover to participate in the match against Bilbao, who beat Real Madrid 2/1.

The Real Sociedad match featured six great saves from Stigen, and was widely praised.
