Marc-Andre ter Stegen, the Barcelona and Germany goalkeeper, will need lower back surgery.

The 31-year-old last played on November 12 and has missed three Barcelona games as well as two for Germany while his ailment is being treated.

Ter Stegen has appeared in 17 games for Barcelona this season, with eight clean sheets.

He had also started all four of Germany’s matches this season.
