Marc-André Ter Stegen was killed at the last moment on Saturday in front of Betis by a stomach problem. In the Sunday session, the goalkeeper alone did specific work, without training with the group, whereby 48 hours before the party against Celtic de Vigo his presence at the Camp Nou next Tuesday seems committed. In this sense, Net Walled would repeat the tenure after his good performance in Benito Villamarín.
The minutes come well to the Brazilian, the one who will probably have to look for the team in the summer, since the intention of FC Barcelona is to file another goalkeeper who was able to challenge the tenure of the German. In January, the directive tried to release from Net with letter of freedom to file to Stole Dimitrievski, but the one of Araxá denied to leave and the operation fell. During the 2021-22 season, the 32-year-old played four games (three in La Liga and one in the Copa del Rey), scoring four goals.
For his part, Ter Stegen comes to him well after having defended the blaugrana arc throughout the season. That of Mönchengladbach received 54 both in 46 appearances with the culés, with a total of 4,200 minutes played. In La Liga, the German received 32 goals in 31 games, a statistic that could have been much worse, if not for his remarkable interventions in games like Raise (2-3) and ahead of Real Sociedad ( 0-1).
Ter Stegen’s is not serious
On Sunday, Barca inform that Ter Stegen is progressing satisfactorily from gastric disorders which separated him from the expedition to Benito Villamarín. Still, the German was left out of the post-recovery party session in front of Betis and only did specific jobs, which he could suspect until the last moment. In this sense, Xavi will not risk with the German if he is not 100%, especially since the Barca already secured its main objective for the semester: to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League.
With nine points for the competition, the blaugranas add 69 points, 11 more than Betis (fifth) and 13 more than Real Sociedad (sixth), by which any of the two can snatch their place between the first four. Now the objective is to maintain the second place to finish as escorts of Real Madrid, champion expected since last Saturday. After receiving at Celtic, the culés will have to go to Getafe and receive at Villarreal to close the season.
