Barcelona Dealt Huge Injury Blow Ahead Of El Clasico Meeting With Real Madrid

 Sometimes you don't realize how good a goalkeeper is when he's not in the squad, and Marc-André ter Stegen has proven himself to be one of the best in the world in recent years.

Neto is a competent backup and he's unlikely to let you down, but he's not very good at the ball and you can tell that no one else is able to get some of the saves like Ter Stegen.

Barca's defense is just a little shaky so expect Real Madrid to have chances in the upcoming clash. So this news will be a blow.

Ronald Koeman has confirmed that the game will come too soon for the German goalkeeper and that he is in no rush to bring him back to the squad.

You still want to get your best players back as soon as possible, but that can only cause long term damage and Real Madrid have a similar situation with Eden Hazard despite the fact that the Belgian star took it upon himself to be kicked out of the game.  

It will be a big test for Koeman as he tries to take the title away from Real, but it will certainly reduce their chances of winning.
