Getafe 1-0 Barcelona. Lionel Messi and his teammates attacked a lot but failed to score goals and had to pay the price for wasting many opportunities. This is Ronald Koeman’s first defeat as Barcelona coach.
Getafe won at least 1-0 against Barcelona to rise to 2nd place on the La Liga standings. Coliseum Alfonso Perez home team only needs the ball 27% in this match, but they have 5 shots on target, of which 1 goal comes from the penalty spot.
In the situation that led to a penalty, Frenkie de Jong proved quite immature in a situation that came close to the opponent from behind. Just a very light impact on the leg, the Getafe player fell and Barcelona had to be punished without any protest.
On the side of Barcelona, they are still the team that holds the ball a lot, playing more dominate. However, they only have 2 successful situations. They created a number of opportunities to face the goalkeeper but the Barcelona strikers all failed to hit the target.
In this match, Coach Koeman trusted Dembele and Griezmann to start. However, the two proved to be quite out of place on the attackers. When Ansu Fati and Coutinho replaced in the second half in the context of Barcelona being led, there were not many opportunities to shine.
With this defeat, Barcelona missed the chance to equalize points with Real Madrid. The Bernabeu team previously had to receive a 0-1 defeat at home. After 4 rounds, Barcelona was ranked 9th with 10 points.
