Barcelona made it four wins from four after beating Getafe 1-2 on Saturday afternoon, although they had to come from behind to do so. The home side started well, Jorge Molina testing Ter Stegen and then turning a shot just wide of the post before Shibasaki volleyed in the opener after Markel Bergara headed a long ball in to his path. Up to then Barça’s best effort had been a header from Umtiti which Guaita saved comfortably, but soon after the restart the local keeper had to save from Sergi Roberto, and with just over an hour gone substitute Denis Suárez made it all square after Deulofeu (who had replaced the injured Dembélé) and Sergi Roberto combined to set him up. The locals could have restored the lead when Sergi Roberto deflected a shot from Arambarri on to the post, but with six minutes to go another substitute Paulinho ran on to Messi’s pass to score the winner.
