Getafe 1 – 2 Barcelona [La Liga] Highlights video, mp4 download
Paulinho’s late goal at Getafe helped Barcelona maintain their 100 per cent start, but Ousmane Dembele went off hurt.
Substitute Paulinho scored a late winner as Barcelona came from behind to beat Getafe 2-1 and continue their perfect start to the new LaLiga season.
The Brazil international netted his first Barca goal with six minutes remaining as Ernesto Valverde’s men recovered from a dreadful first half to claim a fourth straight top-flight victory in 2017-18.
The visitors lost Ousmane Dembele to injury in the opening period of his full Liga debut and their Saturday afternoon got worse when Japan international Gaku Shibasaki scored his first Getafe goal in stunning fashion before the break.
But another of Valverde’s subs, Denis Suarez, struck for the first time since January as the visitors battled back in the second half, before Paulinho grabbed the winner just as it looked like they would have to settle for a draw.
