Ter Stegen and Puig combine to send Barcelona to Supercopa final

Ter Stegen saved the first two penalties, with De Jong and Griezmann also missing for Barcelona. Youngster Ruqui Puiq was tasked with taking the decisive penalty and he converted.

Barcelona will play the winner of Thursday’s semi between Real Madrid and Athletic Club in the final on Sunday.
