Unbeaten Barca Drop Points On Home Soil

LaLiga
 
Result: FC Barcelona 0-0 Getafe
 
Date: 11 February 2018
 
Venue: Camp Nou
 
FC Barcelona failed to score for the first time in LaLiga this season as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Getafe at Camp Nou on Sunday evening.
 
Barca dominated the opening exchanges but could find the right pass in the final third to bypass the Getafe defence.
 
The Catalan giants had to wait until the 27th minute for their first chance of the half when Luis Suarez side-footed a volley inches wide of the upright.
 
Getafe had a chance of their own in the 39th minute but Angel saw his low strike sail inches wide of the upright.
 
Barca had the ball in the back of the net on the stroke of halftime but Suarez's volley was flagged offside.
 
10 minutes into the second half, Paco Alcacer went close to breaking the deadlock but his close range effort sailed wide of the upright.
 
With Barca struggling in the final third, Ernesto Valverde introduced Ousmane Dembele and Andres Iniesta for Philippe Coutinho and Alcacer in the 64th minute.
 
Barca's frustration continued with 10 minutes remaining as Getafe shot-stopper Vicente Guaita denied Lionel Messi with a fine save.
 
The Catalan giants threw everything forward in the closing stages, but the visitors remained resolute to claim a valuable point at the Camp Nou.
