How to Watch Barcelona vs. Getafe

Barcelona possible Getafe

The hosts failed to register a shot on target during the first half, while Luis Suarez had a goal correctly ruled out for offside. Valverde is quite anxious about the game despite Getafe failing to win on any of their last 12 visits. However, while Getafe have played better in their last six games, they have been very bad away from home. They defended their box well and we lacked a bit of spark.

Thanks to both of them as Barcelona reached the King's Cup final for a record fifth year in a row on Thursday. "We can't win every game we play or be 100% all the time and this is why the coming week without a game comes at a great time for us to recover".

Barcelona are held, at the Camp Nou, by Getafe in a goalless encounter.

"This league is never easy, we'll have to work hard", he explained in his post-match press conference.

"Normally the months of January and February are like this", Iniesta said.

Arguably the most encouraging element of Barcelona's performance was a classy full-debut from Yerry Mina at centre-back, made all the more impressive by left-back Lucas Digne being played out of position alongside the Colombia global at the heart of defence.

Inconsistent in defense, Mina was a constant threat on set pieces in attack, almost scoring with a header in the second half.

"It is positive news that the two centre-backs, Yerry and Digne, have been quite good", Valverde said.

Getafe brought on former Arsenal and Crystal Palace midfielder Mathieu Flamini for Angel with 12 minutes to go in an attempt to close out the game and they were indebted to their goalkeeper for some impressive late saves.

"The pair have improved with minutes and it didn't impact us at the start, we're happy with them".

Barcelona is already running away with the league title this term after having won 18 games out of 22 games they have played this season.

'From the 20th minute we had more peace of mind and we had our chances.

"We have high hopes for him, and we need to be careful", the Barcelona coach told the club's official website.
