Marc Ter Stegen (32 years old) has had back problems since the training camp in Germany. Nothing serious, but his presence is at risk in Saturday’s game in Vallecas against Rayo Vallecano (2:00 pm/DAZN). So far, the German goalkeeper has not trained on Tuesday and they don’t want to force him. If he improves and is fine, perfect, but if he still has discomfort, Iñaki Peña will play.
The final decision is set to be made on Thursday because if he has to play on Saturday he must train at least before the match against the Madrid team, but having an important Champions League match on Tuesday against Porto is the idea of all parties is Do not run more than necessary. Furthermore, after the European clash, Barcelona receives the two most form teams in the Liga: Atlético de Madrid, with fewer games remains fourth, stalking the Blaugrana, and Girona, who remains alone leader
Full confidence in Iñaki
Furthermore, the Barça club has full confidence in Iñaki Peña (24 years old), whom they consider a good goalkeeper. In fact, that’s why they tried to keep him because in the summer the goalkeeper’s initial idea was to get out and get minutes in a First Division. There was no shortage of offers, but both sports management and the coaching staff convinced Peña.
The Alicante goalkeeper trains at a high level, he remembers more and more Ter Stegen from whom he always learns and is more than ready if he needs to relieve the German.
