Barcelona v Getafe - La Liga
The table-toppers were forced to settle for a draw

FC Barcelona extended their unbeaten run in the La Liga this season after a goalless draw against an inspired Getafe attack at Camp Nou on Sunday (11 February). The hosts tried hard to create chances and press the opposition in sporadic moments across the game, but could not find the breakthrough till the final whistle.

Ernesto Valverde's team looked slightly out of steam on the day but still managed to salvage a point from the encounter.

Here are five talking points from the game.

#5 Yerry Mina's home debut

Barcelona v Getafe - La Liga
The new signing did not disappoint

The Colombian impressed against Getafe in what was his first start for Barcelona. The Spanish giants did not play with three of their first-choice centre-backs on the day, but their defence remained solid through most part of the game.

He was instrumental in denying Angel Rodriguez a goal on a very big chance in the game and kept his wits about himself while going forward.

Mina developed a functional understanding with Lucas Digne and provided constant cover for goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who had a pretty forgettable day at the office, despite the clean-sheet that he managed to hold on to.

The defender, who was drafted to Camp Nou in the winter transfer window, was also useful in attack. Two headers from him almost closed the game for Barcelona, but the 23-year-old missed scoring on both the occasions by a whisker.
