Spanish La Liga match report FC Barcelona v Getafe 11 February 2018

Samuel Umtiti is suspended for the visit of Getafe this weekend

The draw means Barcelona are now seven points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the table and still undefeated in the league after 23 games.

'I would have prefereed to suffer a lot less and have everything in front of us before, Valencia were very risky on the counter and created problems with good players.

However, a 2-0 midweek win over Valencia sealed their place in the Copa del Rey final.

"He does have some fitness issues from the Espanyol game, and we took a risk on Thursday [against Valencia] because it was such a decisive game, but tomorrow is also an important game, so we have to assess the situation", he said. "He will help us with his quality".

The Catalan side improved in the second half but still struggled to break down the visiting defence, while Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita made a fine save in stoppage-time to prevent Suarez heading in a last-gasp victor as Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina started his Barcelona career with a stalemate. And as he can not feature for Barca in the Champions League, he will be used in La Liga to give Iniesta some rest. However, in the long term, he is seen as a replacement for Iniesta and it is that role he will be expected to learn in the weeks and months ahead.

But, before that, Rico had intervened to prevent the home side going behind just prior to the interval, diving to his right to save an Aday Benitez penalty awarded for a handball by Luis Muriel.

The 20-year-old has been unlucky and badly needs a run of games to prove his worth.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini came on towards the end to make his debut for Getafe, who are 10th. "He has different characteristics to the others and is a player we have high hopes for".

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde's team selection saw full debutant Yerry Mina start alongside Lucas Digne in an unfamiliar centre-back pairing that seemed to encourage the visitors. When you have got none, you can get one.

"Thomas Vermaelen is coming to the end of his recovery", Valverde added.
