FC Barcelona’s amazing defensive record continues. Although a win at Olympiacos would clearly have been a much nicer result, it was still another clean sheet.
In ten games in La Liga, four in the Champions League and one in the Copa del Rey, Barça have only conceded four goals. That’s eleven games out of fifteen in which the opposition have failed to score.
And if Ter Stegen was the hero against Athletic Club, in Piraeus it was Samuel Umtiti who won over the plaudits. He won back the ball eleven times, almost twice the amount recovered by the German keeper and Luis Suárez, who had six each.
The French defender has got off to a spectacular start in his second season at the club and is now an automatic starter in the first XI. Our cameras followed his progress throughout Tuesday’s Champions League fixture and you can enjoy the highlights reel by clicking the video above.
