Marc-Andre ter Stegen has sent a message to Barcelona fans ahead of the club’s Champions League tie with Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday.

The Germany international is expected to be passed fit ahead of the game and included in the matchday squad for the first time this season.

It’s then up to manager Ronald Koeman to decide whether Ter Stegen should start or not but from the looks of it the goalkeeper is raring to go.

Koeman spoke briefly about Ter Stegen in his pre-match press conference. He said the stopper had been looking good back out on the training ground but stopped short of saying whether he would play or not.

Neto has done a pretty good job in Ter Stegen’s absence, Alaves howler aside, but he looks set to make way and head back to then bench either on Wednesday or on Saturday when Real Betis visit.
