Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen delighted after victory at Mallorca - and another cleansheet

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen broke his longest streak in LaLiga without conceding a goal in Saturday's 1-0 win over Mallorca.

Ter Stegen's longest run without conceding was previously set at 500 minutes but after the Mallorca win he has now gone 534 minutes without being beaten.

In total, Ter Stegen has conceded just one goal this season in seven league games, which was Alexander Isak's for Real Sociedad in the second game of the campaign.

He later said: "The victory is more important than the record. And even more so in this type of match. These victories give you the conviction and the security of entering the positive dynamic, it gives us life because we keep up the pressure.

"There are always things to improve on a personal and collective level, I am doing everything possible to prepare myself as well as possible for matches and it shows."
