Even without a win, he is in second place: Getafe – Barcelona 0-0 –

Filled with losses, Barcelona entered as a guest of Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, where they eventually came to nowhere. Xavi’s squad did not play well, but thanks to this point, he finished second in the standings, which is a huge achievement compared to the beginning of the season.

Getafe started the match strongly, perhaps with a somewhat unusual lineup (5-2-2-1) that surprised Barcelona in the first minutes. Quique Sánchez Flores wasn’t much help in defence, his energy-consuming shots proving very costly in the sweltering heat.

The Catalans had no attempts in the first half of the first half, while Getafe made five – although they were unsuccessful. Barcelona’s attacking structure was far from accurate: there was mostly a set ball on the host side, and if there was no better idea, his teammates tried to play the strikers with deep starts. Obviously, all this was the result of a well-organized Getafe defense, but it also lacked creativity on the other side.

He was threatened more and more by Getafe half an hour later and crashed into the gate three times in a row within minutes. This also led to Barcelona being hit twice with a suspicious penalty shootout at the back, once by Dani Alves and once by Ter Stegen, both times due to a push, but luckily Gil Manzano and VAR did not mention a penalty kick. , or at least the possibility of examination.

Xavi’s crew seemed to bounce back in the overtime minutes, when he managed to take a corner kick several times due to “knockout” balls by Getafe, but they did not reach the goal post, so the first 45 minutes ended. 0-0.

At the beginning of the second half, the first attempt of the guests arrived, which was named after Ferran Torres. However, after a stunning move by Spanish winger Aubameyang, he practically gave the ball to Syria. In fact, in terms of the game’s image, everything continued where it ended in the first half: high ball possession rate, but unimaginative offensive game.

If the number of absences was not enough, they were joined by Memphis, who indicated that he was asking for a replacement as a result of the collision. The second 45 minutes did not bring many situations, the hosts tried to break the match and the intense defense, and Barcelona’s attacks remained ineffective.

In general, the winner of this match was Getafe, even in the face of a draw, as they scored points and were more prepared, determined and goal-oriented than their Catalan opponent – even if they had much less ball. This point also means that Sanchez Flores will remain in the league, who, incidentally, reached the draw that they considered sufficient at the pre-match press conference.

Barcelona fans may be more disappointed with the match picture, and less so in terms of position in the standings, as Atlético de Madrid were unable to beat Sevilla at home (1-1), so Xavi is sure to finish in second place. La Liga season 2021/22. At the same time, this means that next week’s meeting against Villarreal will not be at stake.
