Barcelona 0 Getafe 0

Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita made a fine save in stoppage time to prevent Suarez heading in a late victor as Barca missed out on the chance to re-establish their nine-point lead at the top.

After needing a late equalizer to avoid defeat against crosstown rival Espanyol in the previous round, Barcelona couldn't find the net against midtable Getafe at Camp Nou Stadium.

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.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest of Barca's superstars failed to muster a shot on target during the first half and Valverde felt his players failed to adapt fully to the challenge presented by Pepe Bordalas' side.

"You can't win every match you play and you can't be consistent all the time", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said.

"We still have to sweat for this league", he told a post-match news conference. It hadn't gone without a goal at Camp Nou in the league since a scoreless draw against Malaga in November 2016.

When quizzed about Sunday's clash with Getafe, Valverde said: "I have spoken about this game before it is a hard one, the game against them early this season was the first game we were behind".

Getafe, 10th in the standings, has drawn four straight matches, losing only once in its last seven games.


Barcelona are without the suspended Samuel Umtiti and the injured Thomas Vermaelen while Denis Suarez and Andre Gomes have failed to make the squad.

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.

Valverde responded by sending on Andres Iniesta and Ousmane Dembele in place of Coutinho and Alcacer.

Valencia moved up to third on 43 points, a point ahead of Real Madrid having played a game more than the title holders.

Sevilla owed their win to goalkeeper Sergio Rico who pulled off a series of stunning saves, including a first half penalty save from an Aday Benitez penalty.

Sevilla defeated Girona 1-0 with a victor by Pablo Sarabia early in the second half at Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium.

Sevilla is sixth in the standings, one point behind Villarreal.
