FC Barcelona received a major boost this week with the return of first-choice goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen. The German international has been out injured since January with a back problem, but he is now back in training and is expected to make his comeback in the upcoming Champions League match against Napoli.

Ter Stegen’s absence has been a major blow for Barcelona. The team has conceded 32 goals in 17 La Liga games without him, compared to just 15 goals in 17 games with him in goal.

Ter Stegen is not only a world-class goalkeeper, but he is also a leader on and off the field. His return will be a major boost for Barcelona’s morale, both in La Liga and in the Champions League.

In La Liga, Barcelona are currently in fourth place, 15 points behind leaders Real Madrid. They have a chance to close the gap when they face Granada at home on Sunday.

In the Champions League, Barcelona are in a good position to qualify for the quarter-finals. They won the first leg of their tie against Napoli 1-0, and they will be confident of finishing the job in the second leg on March 15.

Ter Stegen’s return will be a major boost for Barcelona’s chances of success in both La Liga and the Champions League. He is a world-class goalkeeper who can make a difference in big games.
