Stubborn Getafe Hold Barcelona At Camp Nou

Valverde's side are still unbeaten in 22 league matches this season and sit nine points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid.

The Blaugrana were held to a 1-1 draw by local rivals Espanyol last weekend.

Ernesto Valverde warned Barcelona they will have to overcome plenty more dogged opponents like Getafe if they are to get their hands on the title in LaLiga.

On match day 23-of-38, Barcelona hosted mid-table Getafe at the #Camp Nou.

In irresistible form in front of goal in 2018, Suarez had the ball in the net just before half-time with a great finish from a Lionel Messi free-kick, but the home celebrations were cut short by the offside flag.

The draw sees Barcelona open up their lead at the top of La Liga to seven points, but the goalless draw means that today was the first time this season Barcelona had failed to score in a La Liga fixture.

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

And Valverde is hoping Dembele, who has not played since January 14, can make an impact.

Valverde said he would carefully manage Dembele's game time to ensure that he does not suffer a recurrence of the hamstring problem and hinted that the 20-year-old would start on the bench against Getafe.

Colombia defender Yerry Mina was in the starting lineup for his Liga debut.

Mina was caught out, both in possession and positionally, early on but otherwise looked assured as well as being a threat at set-pieces.

Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele came on in the second half for his first appearance since his latest spell on the sidelines, but the young France forward was also incapable of breaking down the Getafe back line.

Defending champion Real Madrid routed Real Sociedad 5-2 at home on Saturday behind a hat trick by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Girona missed a chance to open the scoring before halftime when Aday Benitez had his penalty shot saved by Sergio Rico.
