Marc Andre Ter Stegen was decisive in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Elche.
Barcelona lost the Supercopa de Espana to Athletic Bilbao but bounced back to beat UE Cornella in the Copa del Rey.
Ter Stegen denied Elche striker Emiliano Rigoni at the start of the second half and Koeman hailed Ter Stegen who was pivotal in that game.
This records Barca’s 5th consecutive La Liga away win this season.

“Very happy with how we have won,” Koeman said.
“We’ve had many games in the last few days and we’ve been very focused.
“We were superior to the opposition, we were patient, we stole balls. It was difficult to score because they had a lot of people behind the ball, but we pressed well.
“They had only one chance and it was because of a big defensive mistake, but [Marc-Andre] ter Stegen was very good in the one-on-one. We’re lucky to have a great goalkeeper because they could have equalised. The best thing about today was our pressing and our play without the ball. We’re just winners.”
