Many Barcelona fans were unimpressed by the performances from many of their players during the 2-1 win over Slavia Prague, but there wasn’t much disappointment aimed towards Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Will Barcelona win La Liga this season?
The Germany international made a total of 8 saves, 1 punch, 1 high claim and 1 clearance during the game, as per SofaScore.
This performance saw the 27-year-old get plenty of praise, as he helped earn the three points that kept the team top of their Champions League group:

While many Barca fans praised the club’s number 1, they also showed concern about how much he was relied upon to get the three points.
For him to have to make so many saves in a game against that level of opposition, is seen as a sign that the rest of the team were not performing to a high enough standard, in the minds of many fans.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the performance, including posts from appreciative Barcelona fans, can be seen below:
His performance was probably the only saving grace. Slavia could have easily won the game if not for him. The lack of confidence of our team is clearly showing. After the first goal, I thought that the team was going to make a point, but disappointed again.

This guy is a gift to Barcelona..
He is so intelligent in goal keeping..
He didn’t/doesn’t allow the flops of our defenders to be open to the world as such…
What a brilliant performance yesterday bro @mterstegen1
