And Marc-Andre ter Stegen has admitted that tensions remain between the players at both clubs after admitting a dislike for Real Madrid.

The Barcelona keeper however did find time to praise another rivalry, admitting the Spanish champions’ inner city derby with Espanyol is a more enjoyable occasion with much respect shown.

‘I don’t really like Real Madrid,’ Ter Stegen said. ‘We have a big rivalry with Espanyol, because we are from the same city.’

‘But there is a lot of respect between us. Those derby games are always very intense.

Despite being Barca’s No 1 goalkeeper in the club’s Champions League success last season, the German stopper has yet to make his league debut for the club.

In addition to winning the Champions League, Barca finished top of the Spanish top flight and won the Spanish Cup to complete a treble and Ter Stegen is motivated to ensure the club can repeat their success.

‘We want to repeat last season’s success. We will fight for it, although we all realise it will not be easy.”
