Jasper Cillessen made his debut for FC Barcelona this weekend. Just as Paco Alcacer, it wasn't the best day to do it apparently. The Dutch goalkeeper conceded two goals against Alaves in his firts ever game with the scarlet and blue badge.

There's nothing to blame on Cillessen in either of the goals. Deyberson scored from inside the box and he didn't have time to react to the shot. Same with Ibai Gomez's second goal, even he touched the ball a little, not enough to put it wide.

Debuts from Ter Stegen and Bravo

Claudio Bravo made his debut two seasons ago against Elche, at Camp Nou. The game finished 3-0 so he didn't concede. However, in his first ever start with Barcelona in a pre-season game against Napoli, he made a big mistake and conceded a goal against Napoli. 

Ter Stegen made his debut on 17th September 2014 in the Champions League, against APOEL at Camp Nou. 1-0 victory, also without conceding.
