Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André Ter Stegen has revealed that Barcelona has not done any psychological work after two consecutive seasons crashing out of the UEFA Champions League.

“The truth is we never considered it. There have been key games that have cost us classifying into the next round,” he said in declarations collected by Diario SPORT.

The keeper said that the Champions League is all about being decisive in key moments, moments at which Barça failed in the past two seasons.

Ter Stegen was chosen to give the press conference before Ernesto Valverde spoke ahead of Barcelona’s clash with Borussia Dortmund.

“The Champions is always at a high level, we always come out onto the pitch to win. We try not to forget what happened last year, but learn from the situations in which we have failed,” the keeper said.

“We try to come out tomorrow convinced in what we are doing. It will be a very difficult game that we will have to face, so we have to be 100%.”
