F.C Barcelona fresh from their Copa Del Rey victory against Valencia were in action against Getafe in the league. Barcelona is league leaders in La Liga and have a 7 point gap against second-place Atletico Madrid. They were held to a draw by a gutsy performance from the Getafe defense.
Although, Barcelona commanded most of the possession (79.3%) but to little effect. Barcelona had rested impact players like Iniesta, Pique, and Dembele. It was quite a surprise to see the center-back pairing of Lucas Digne and debutant Yerry Mina.
The first half was a cagey affair as both teams were trying to find their feet. Barcelona were quite lackluster their gameplay, especially in the final third. Barcelona created many chances with Coutinho, Suarez and Messi coming close to scoring only to be denied by the heroics of the Getafe keeper.
Let’s take a closer look at the ratings of the Barca players:
MARC ANDRE TER SETEGEN- 7/10
Yet another clean sheet for the German shot-stopper. Looked assured in goal as always and made some clever saves, especially in the first half. Overall, MATS was hardly tested and did a great job when called upon. He is surely been one of the best keepers in the world this season.
