It was a pleasure to bring you all the updates of the feisty encounter, live from the Coliseum in Getafe.

This is Shaurya Vineet signing off, until next time.

Until then, goodbye and adios!
...
Barcelona have turned it around here at the Coliseum to make it 4 wins out of 4 in La Liga. The Catalan outfit are now, at least temporarily, 7 points clear of Real Madrid. 

Ernesto Valverde needs to get the credit for this win as his inspired substitutions were the catalyst behind Barcelona's comeback.

Getafe deserve a round of applause for punching above their weight. The newly-promoted side had Barcelona on the ropes for much of the second half, and it was the better conditioning of the Barcelona team, coupled with their superior quality that proved too much for the home side in the end.

After Shibasaki opened the scoring with an excellent strike, Denis Suarez equalized with a peach of a strike before Paulinho thumped it in to win it for his side. The Brazilian has silenced his doubters for now, so have Barcelona and Ernesto Valverde.
...
FULL-TIME: GETAFE 1-2 BARCELONA
...
90+3' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Barcelona have turned it around to maintain their perfect start to the league season.
...
90+2' Getafe have a corner but Barcelona are quick to clear it. Valverde's men are pressing the life out of the home side.
...
Getafe are bombing forward, looking for a desperate equalizer.
...
90' 3 minutes of added time.
...
88' Messi goes close as his left-footed strike goes inches wide of Guaita's far post and the referee gives Barcelona a corner, thinking Messi's shot must have been on target. Replays confirmed there was no deflection. It is alright referee, we are all humans, even Messi.
...
88' Yellow Card: Damian Suarez is the next player to be booked.
...
87' Barcelona have turned it around in the second half. Getafe look stunned, they are desperate to get a point from this.
...
It is Messi who is the architect but let's not take anything away from the Brazilian, who produced an excellent thumping finish to put his side ahead, for the firs time this night. Messi carried the ball past the halfway line before threading an inch-perfect through ball into the path of Paulinho, the Brazilian takes a touch or two before unleashing an unstoppable right-footed strike past Guaita to score his first ever goal for the Camp Nou outfit.
...
84' GOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!! Paulinho scores for Barcelona! Great great strike by Barcelona's new signing.
...
82' Arambarri rattles the upright. The Getafe star had the chance to win it for his team and he goes close as his strike takes a deflection off Roberto before striking Ter Stegen's near post and goes out.
...
Less than 10 minutes plus stoppage time to go.
...
80' Jimenez forces Ter Stegen into making an excellent save as he lets one fly from outside of the box. It was a stinging effort and a couple of inches on either side and the German shot-stopper could have been in trouble.
...
Getafe are looking to hold on to the scoreline or maybe try an attempt a late smash and grab win. Barcelona are pushing forward in numbers. Is there a late goal in this tie?
...
77' Substitution: Ivan Rakitic is withdrawn as Paulinho comes on. Can Barcelona's summer recruit complete the comeback?
...
76' Messi is acting as the creator here. He now pings a ball forward in the hope of finding Denis Suarez and so he does, but the Spaniard is unable to get it under control.
...
Meanwhile, Paulinho is prepared to come on.
...
75' Messi and Rakitic play a quick one-two at the edge of the Getafe box. The Argentine tries to scoop one into the path of the Croatian but the ball is cut out.
...
73' Yellow Card: Luis Suarez is the next Barcelona player to go into the referee's books and he has been cautioned for dissent.
...
72' Substitution: Mora comes on to replace Amath.
...
70' The Getafe defense is Messimerized as the Argentine goes on a jinking run past the challenges of three Getafe players before losing control of the ball. The home side launch a counter-attack and Umtiti looked to have shoved Jimenez right at the edge of the Barca box but the referee is not interested. Replays confirmed that the Frenchman got the ball.
...
69' Suarez - who has had another poor game - is seen holding his leg once again. The Uruguayan forward is hardly at 100% fitness.
...
68' Deulofeu gets to the byline and he tries to cut in from there, he beat his marker, but his touch lets him down and Getafe are able to clear.
...
66' Yellow Card: Jordi Alba is booked for holding his ground and Getafe have a free-kick in a good position down the right flank.
...
64' Barcelona are starting to ask serious questions from this Getafe defence. Will the home side be able to hold on to steal a point?
...
Sergi Roberto the architect there. The Spaniard gets to the byline before cutting it back for Denis Suarez - who is just inside the box. The Barcelona #6 wraps his right foot around the ball and sends an unstoppable shot past Guaita into the top corner to equalize in style.
...
62' GOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!! Barcelona equalize and it is Denis Suarez who has brought his side back on level terms.
...
60' Rakitic finds Suarez inside the box with an accurate through ball, however, the striker is unable to find the space to get a shot underway and another good chance goes begging. Time running out for Barcelona!
...
58' Suarez goes down under some pressure from the home side's defence and is seen clutching his left calf. The Uruguayan looks to be walking gingerly, will he be able to continue?
...
57' Ter Stegen with a poor kick, which sails into the stands and the crowd gets on his back.
...
55' Whenever Barcelona are in trouble, they tend to pass the ball to Messi and pray that something happens. Tonight, the case is no different, but the Argentine is closed down as soon as he gets the ball. Some relentless pressing by Getafe,
...
54' Substitution: Shibasaki is withdrawn as Alvaro Jimenez is thrown into the fray.
...
53' Yellow Card: Deulofue is booked for a high boot on Molina.
...
52' Shibasaki, who sent the Coliseum into a frenzy with his stunning strike looks to be struggling with an injury and looks unlikely to continue.
...
51' Messi leads Barcelona counter-attack as the Catalan giants look to find a way back into the game. The Argentine evades a couple of challenges before laying it off for Deulofeu down the right, who crosses it for Alba down the left. The Spaniard tries to lay it off for Messi but the forward is unable to get it under his control.
...
48' Suarez and Messi try to combine at the edge of the box but Shibasaki is there to get his side out of the spot. Denis Suarez then goes down under pressure from the Getafe defence inside the box and Barcelona want a penalty but the referee is having none of it. Denis Suarez was fouled right on the edge of the box but he only went down once inside the box and that may have affected the referee's decision-making.
...
Ernesto Valverde has already made his second change of the game, having been forced into repacing Dembele earlier.
...
46' Substitution: Denis Suarez comes on to replace Andres Iniesta.
