Champions League Ter Stegen back for Barca v Celtic

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has recovered from a hamstring injury and is set to return in goal as Barcelona host Celtic in the Champions League.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is poised to return to action in Tuesday's Champions League opener against Celtic.

Ter Stegen is now Barcelona's first-choice keeper following Claudio Bravo's switch to Manchester City, although he sat out Saturday's shock LaLiga defeat to Alaves with hamstring trouble.

Dutch international Jasper Cillessen made his Barca debut in his absence but is now expected to drop to the bench for the visit of the Scottish champions.

It means third-choice goalkeeper Jordi Masip joins midfielder Denis Suarez and defenders Jeremy Mathieu and Aleix Vidal in missing out on the matchday 18.
