Marc-Andre ter Stegan pulls off incredible save during Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Getafe in their La Liga encounter on Saturday.
Barcelona remain hot on Real Madrid’s heels with a 2-1 victory over Getafe. The two sides are now level on points. However, Real Madrid still have a game in hand and could take a 3 point lead on Sunday night. Regardless, this was a lead achieved by a collective effort from Barcelona.
Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto scored in the 1st half to give Barcelona a 2 goal lead. Angel Rodriguez scored in the 2nd half for Getafe and reduced the difference to a single goal. The visitors could very well have brought the difference to zero if not for Marc-Andre ter Stegan’s heroics.
