Marc-André ter Stegen Produced Two World Class Saves Against Atletico Madrid
Marc-André ter Stegen pulled off not one but two stunning saves during Barcelona's La Liga victory over Atletico Madrid.
The German international prevented Atletico Madrid from scoring as Barcelona secured a dramatic 1-0 victory at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Sunday.
Ter Stegen produced an incredible save to deny Mario Hermoso in the 20th minute. He somehow kept out his header from point blank range.

He then made another incredible save to stop Alvaro Morata from opening the scoring in the 40th minute. The 27-year-old keeper stuck out a big right hand to save the Spaniard's bullet header.
Needless to say, Ter Stegen's heroics between the sticks sent social media into overdrive.
What a wonderful goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen is, both with hands and feet. :ok_hand:

The Atlético fans gets to witness with their own eyes who exactly is the best goalkeeper of the world. Oblak is great, but Ter Stegen is on another level.

Barcelona's No.1 is widely considered the best goalkeeper in world football and his performance on Sunday would suggest that sentiment is correct.
Is he the best keeper in the world? Let us know what you think.
