Ernesto Valverde and Paulinho speak out after Getafe La Liga win

17 September, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Joan Malone

Things got worse for Barcelona before the break when Getafe took a shock lead through a stunning long range strike from Gaku Shibasaki.

Barcelona come from one goal behind to record a 2-1 win over Getafe in Saturday afternoon's entertaining La Liga contest in Madrid.

Now, as I write this, Paulinho has actually just scored a lovely goal, but it still can't come close to what Japanese global Shibasaki did in the first half to give Getafe the lead.

As for Getafe, Jorge Molina once again led the line for the capital outfit, while Japan worldwide Shibasaki also kept his position in the team.

After Barca failed to properly clear a Getafe free-kick, Shibasaki was on hand to absolutely thunder a flawless volley past Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and into the top corner.

Signed for an initial €105 million ($156.6 million), ex-Borussia Dortmund winger Dembele had made his first Barca start against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday (AEST), having come on as a substitute at home to Espanyol last week, his first game in the club's colours.

Barcelona were pressing, however, and the visitors eventually levelled the scores in the 62nd minute when Denis Suarez, who had worked some space inside the Getafe box, found the top corner with a brilliant effort.

However, it wasn't all good news for the Catalans as Ousmane Dembele injured his hamstring after sprinting for the ball just after the 20 minute mark.

Paulinho celebrates after his winning goal helps Barcelona beat Getafe 2-1.

The result keeps Ernesto Valverde's side top of the table, having won all four of their games so far this season.
