Barcelona drop points against Getafe — LaLiga

12 Febrero 2018

It means Atletico Madrid, which picked up a third consecutive victory at Malaga, has trimmed Barcelona's advantage at the summit to seven points.

"After tomorrow's game we have a long week with time to recover from our efforts in January".

A round of applause for Jose Bordalas, Getafe's coach, who got his tactics spot on and saw the leaders drop points for only the fifth time this season.

"These are the busy months of the season and we're obliged to do well in all three competitions", said captain Andres Iniesta.

Getafe are unbeaten in their last four games, including an impressive 1-1 away draw against Sevilla. He had to play because Gerard Pique was injured and Samuel Umtiti suspended.

Suarez almost won it for Barca late in the 90th minute but his diving header was tipped over the bar by Guaita.

"He has the quality to help us". Mina is left one on one with Angel. Tomorrow is also important.

A period of acclimatisation was always going to be in store for the Brazilian after making the switch from Liverpool.

Former Inter striker Rodrigo Palacio drew Bologna level in the 25th minute, largely thanks to a mistake by Joao Miranda, but Karamoh restored the hosts' lead after the hour mark, rattling home a stunning drive following a clever one-two with Rafinha. The 31-year-old provided two moments of genius to unlock a resolute Valencia defence and see his side through to the Copa del Rey final.

Ousmane Dembele (l) and Ernesto Valverde.

The second-half began in a very similar vein to how the first concluded, with Getafe quite comfortable in packing the defense to nullify any attacking threat from Barca.

The significance of this coming just a few days before PSG come to town can't be downplayed.

Barcelona will, no doubt, play far worse than this and win handsomely, it's just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes isn't it!

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho all start for Barcelona although things look less usual at the back.

Nicolas N'Koulou converted Iago Falque's 32nd-minute assist and in the 66th minute Belotti found the back of the net for the first time in four matches when notching at the end of a rapid counter-attack. Is he up to Barca's standards?

However, Sergio Rico, who starred throughout the match with several sharp saves, spared his team-mate's blushes to deny Aday with a fine stop to his right and keep the score goalless at the break.
