Bravo posted his third consecutive clean sheet by making two saves in Barcelona's 2-0 La Liga victory over Athletic Club on Saturday.

With Marc-Andre ter Stegen available off the bench following his recovery from a back injury, the pressure will be on Bravo to keep up the solid goal-keeping duties. However, it's tough to say he's been asked to do much, as he didn't have to make a single save in both of his first two shutouts.

Bravo will be the starting goalkeeper for Barcelona for their La Liga opener against Elche on Aug. 24, ESPN FC reports.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen suffered a back injury in training this week and will miss between two to three weeks, giving Bravo the early lead for the starting keeper job this season. Both players were competing for the role, and while ter Stegen remains the frontrunner once he is fit, Bravo, who spent the last eight seasons with Real Sociedad, could firm up the spot if he plays well early.

Bravo signed a four-year contract with FC Barcelona on Thursday after transferring from Real Sociedad, the club's official web site reports.

Bravo spent eight seasons at Real Sociedad before the move to Barcelona, where he will likely backup Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who was acquired from Borussia Monchengladbach earlier this summer. Bravo is currently in Brazil to captain Chile's World Cup squad.

Bravo recorded three saves Monday, but he ultimately gave up two goals during Chile's loss to the Netherlands in the World Cup.

Bravo had been pretty sound during his first two games of the group stage, giving up just one goal to Australia, but the Netherlands proved to be better than Chile's former opponents Monday. He'll have a chance to bounce back when Chile faces the formidable foe of Brazil on Saturday.

Bravo made three saves but allowed five goals during Saturday's loss to Real Madrid.

Bravo had given up only two goals in his prior four matches, so while Real Madrid came in with plenty of firepower, five goals is still quite a figure. He'll look to get back on track against Celta Vigo on November 23 after the international break.
