Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen on penalty save: I went with feeling

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was proud of his clean sheet for their 0-0 draw at Champions League opponents Borussia Dortmund.

The German international made a string of fine saves in the game to ensure Barça kept a clean sheet, including stopping Marco Reus' penalty.

"I think they had some clear chances at times when we weren't organised very well, but I think we played well," Ter Stegen said after the game. "With the quality they have, it's difficult to avoid (them having chances)."

Ter Stegen, who kept his first clean sheet of the season, said that "we're happy in the end because we have got a point here."

As for his penalty save from Germany teammate Reus, he added: "It's difficult to study him because he always changes. It was just a feeling that I had and I am happy to have saved it."
