Getafe 1-2 Barcelona: 5 Talking Points
On a day when Barcelona looked set to drop all three points, Ernesto Valverde sent in two unlikely heroes to rescue the team and walk away with all three points. Denis Suarez and Paulinho came off the bench to score in the 2nd half as Barcelona won 2-1 at Getafe.
Gaku Shibasaki’s stunning strike in the first half saw the home side take the lead and it looked like they were going to run away with all three points with some strong defending. Here are 5 talking points from the game:
#5 - Barcelona are getting back to their rhythm
Ernesto Valverde is finally getting the hang of things and is getting the club back on track. The manager had a tough start - losing back-to-back games to Real Madrid in the Super Copa Final but has now figured out how to handle things.
His tactics are clicking and the players are now playing as he wants them to. Barcelona conceded a wondergoal – something that no defence or goalkeeper in the world would have stopped.
Despite the winner coming late, the match was dominated by the Catalan side, who kept knocking on Getafe's door.
