Ter Stegen Makes Barca History With Assist

Marc-Andre te Stegen has made history at Barcelona, becoming the club’s first goalkeeper to provide a La Liga assist in the 21st century.

The Germany international achieved that feat during a meeting with Getafe on Saturday.

He did so in style, with remarkable composure displayed by the 27-year-old.

Ter Stegen found himself forced outside of his area four minutes before half-time.

Acting a sweeper behind his defence, a man widely regarded as one of the very best in the business in his chosen position showed why he enjoys such a standing.

Rather than rush a clearance or look to lay off to a nearby team-mate, Ter Stegen opted to cushion the ball off his chest.

He then got his head up and fired a lofted pass down the middle of the field.

Luis Suarez was on the move, getting beyond the last man, and calmly lobbed an onrushing keeper at the opposite end of the pitch. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
