Barcelona lost to Getafe

Barcelona

Barcelona fell to their first defeat in La Liga under new coach Ronald Koeman as they lost 1-0 at Getafe on Saturday. Getafe scored from the penalty spot in the second half to win the match.

 

Getafe forward Jaime Mata sent Barca goalkeeper Neto the wrong way from the penalty spot to score the only goal in the 56th minute. The penalty was for a foul committed by Frenkie de Jong on Djene Dakonam. Barca played really well in the first half and almost took the lead, but Lionel Messi's shot hit the post and Griezmann missed a golden opportunity. Both teams could have added more goals but they failed to find the net despite getting chances.

 

The result left Barca ninth with seven points after four games. This will not be great result for Barcelona who are to host Real Madrid in the El Clasico next week. They also have a Champions League match before the Clasico.
