Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has urged his team to be positive after their 0-0 draw with Sevilla.

It was a disappointing night for Quique Setien’s side who could lose top spot in the table on Sunday if Real Madrid beat Real Sociedad.

Yet Ter Stegen isn’t giving up just yet and told his team-mates they need to focus on their own games and stay positive.

“Of course we’ve dropped two points and now we have to fight for the next three. We have to stay positive and as I said I’m happy with the attitude. If we can show this again on Tuesday I’m sure we’ll get a good result.

“I think both teams did a good job. So I think a draw is fine. I don’t think anyone deserved to win. It was a tough battle.

“We have to just focus on ourselves. We want to improve. I’m sure if we show the ambition we’ve shown in this game in every game then we’re in a good situation. We’re going to fight for every point and then well, we’ll see. Nothing else matters but getting the points.
