The goal scored by Joao Felix proved to be the deciding factor in Barcelona’s victory over Atletico Madrid, which came as a significant triumph for Barcelona.
One of the most important players in the game was Inaki Pena, who made a save that was absolutely necessary for his team to win the game. During the absence of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who was suffering from an injury, Pena was playing.
As a result of a back injury, the German international basketball player has been absent from three consecutive matches. Despite the fact that his knock did not appear to be particularly serious at first, it appears that the goalkeeper may be out for a considerable amount of time.
Ter Stegen might not return for two to three months.
According to RAC1, which appears to indicate that Ter Stegen is suffering from a problem in his back that is affecting his leg, this is the case. This week, it is anticipated that he will consult with specialists.
On the other hand, all indications point to the fact that Ter Stegen will need to have surgery, given that the German has not shown a favorable response to conservative treatment.
In the event that the German international undergoes surgery, it is possible that he would be sidelined for a length of time ranging from two to three months, which would be very detrimental to Barcelona.
Does Barcelona have adequate coverage?

A positive indicator for Barcelona ahead of the key December season is the fact that he is doing well.In addition to Pena, Barcelona has Diego Kochen, a young player known for his potential, as their third choice. Over the course of the most recent few matches, Kochen has been a member of the squad, and it is quite probable that he will continue to be a part of the group going ahead.
