Getafe 1 Barcelona 2

Barcelona news Paco Alcacer

Ousmane Dembele hobbled off in the first half, as Barcelona came from a goal down to defeat Getafe 2-1 on Saturday.

Getafe remain on four points and have now gone 10 LaLiga matches without a home win, despite a fearless performance.

Gaku Shibasaki's wonder strike just before half-time gave Getafe a shock lead against Barca, who lost Ousmane Dembele to injury, but Ernesto Valverde's substitutes made all the difference, with Denis and Paulinho both getting on the scoresheet.

The hosts made a bright start, forcing Gerard Pique into a rugby tackle on Jorge Molina to thwart an early attack, earning the defender a booking, although the resulting free-kick was wasted.

In the 16th minute Getafe squandered a great opportunity to grab the lead after Molina failed to connect to Baku Shibasaki's deflected cross.

"Before the game started we saw that the grass was long and dry", said the midfielder, who replaced Andres Iniesta at half time.

Lazor is in his 12th season as an National Football League coach and in his second year as an assistant coach with the Bengals. The clock is ticking on Cincinnati's season, however, with a trip to Green Bay coming in nine days.

The opening 25 minutes of football passed without Barcelona having a single shot on target, and it got worse for the visitors when Dembele limped off the field with a hamstring injury on his first league start for the club, which saw Gerard Deulofeu introduced off the bench.

Messi nearly found a quick-fire equaliser, his free kick curling towards Guaita's top-left corner, but the goalkeeper managed to tip it over.

Getafe hero Shibasaki had to leave the match with an injury of his own early in the second half, shortly before Sergi Roberto tested Guaita.

GOOOALLLLL Denis Suárez equalises!

Former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho scored a late victor as Barcelona maintained their 100% record in La Liga by coming from behind to beat Getafe.

Argentina worldwide Lionel Messi nearly levelled the scores just before the break but his brilliant free-kick, that seemed destined for the top-left corner, was superbly tipped around the post.
