Things are not looking great right now

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen may be on the bench once again on Sunday when Xavi’s side take on Atletico in La Liga.

The Germany international has been out with a back injury, and missed Barca’s last two games, and the latest update suggests he’s still a major doubt.

RAC1 are reporting that as things stand it will be “difficult” for Ter Stegen to play at the weekend.

The Barcelona goalkeeper is still not feeling good and has only two training sessions left to prove his fitness and be included in the squad.

Losing Ter Stegen would be a blow ahead of such an important game, however Inaki Pena put in a fine performance in midweek in the Champions League.

The back-up stopper also earned plenty of praise from manager Xavi after the win and may have to step up once again on Sunday evening at Montjuic.
