Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was, without doubt, the best player in his side's goalless draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.

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." 

The Barça No.1 didn't feel he was extra motivated because he was playing back in Germany amid the debate over who should be the country's stopper: him or Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer.  

"The people know what I am capable of," he said. "I just focus on myself, I always want to give 100 percent and today I have been able to demonstrate that."
