  • 93'
    FT: Barca 5-2 Getafe!!! All over at the Camp Nou and it was quite straight forward. Two goals from Messi and a Chakla own goal gave Barca a 3-1 lead after an own goal by Lenglet had drawn Getafe level. Barca were cruising, but an Unal penalty brought Getafe back into it. Araujo and a Griezmann penalty in the closing stages made it five.
Penalty scored
Goaaaaal from a penalty!

    Pedri is pulled back by Iglesias and it's a free-kick.

    Still 3-2, but the visitors are not really testing the Barca GK.
  • 81'
    Getafe have the ball on the edge of the Barca box through Arambarri and Sabit, but Getafe go sideways rather than forwards.

    Iglesias' cross into the box is headed at Ter Stegen.

  • 71'
    Chance for Barca as Messi goes forward, he gives to Trincao and then Ilaix hits at the GK! Koeman isn't happy with Mingueza.

    Araujo is booked for the foul as well.
  • 68
    Penalty to Getafe after Araujo is penalised following the VAR review!
  • 68'
    The ref is going to the screen and Araujo clearly steps on his foot.
  • 67'
    Getafe want a pen as Unal goes down in the box after a foul by Araujo, but the ref says no! It was good play by Kubo in the build up.
  • 64
    Barca sub: Trincao on for Roberto.
  • 63
    Getafe sub: Angel Rodriguez is replaced by Unal.
  • 62
    Play is stopped as Ilaix and Chema clash hands, but the Getafe man is ok.
  • 61'
    Messi and Ilaix combine, the ball is then given to Roberto on the far side, but the centre is poor and the ball goes for a goal kick.
  • 57'
    Messi goes looking for his hat-trick, but the move comes to nothing.
  • 56'
    Getafe go forward through Kubo and Arambarri, but the cross into the box is really poor.
  • 52'
    Nothing came of that corner and Barca are just passing the ball around. There's no urgency now from the hosts.
  • 50'
    Getafe get themselves a corner.
  • 48'
    Barca having the ball here early on.

  • 45
    Barca double sub: Araujo and Ilaix on for Pique and Lenglet.
  • 45'
    HT: Barca 3-1 Getafe! Half-time at the Camp Nou and Barca are cruising. Messi was denied by the bar early on, but he then scored in the 8th minute. A Lenglet own goal drew Getafe level, but a crazy own goal involving Chakla and the keeper gifted Barca the lead. Messi then struck again minutes later to give the hosts a two goal cushion. I can't see Getafe coming back, but join us for the second half anyway!
  • 45'
    Messi's ball in is too strong and it's a goal kick. One extra minute.

    Kubo brings down Messi near the penalty area.
  • 42'
    Alba passes to Roberto, whose pass is blocked and then a Barca ball in for Messi is headed away by Chakla.
  • 41'
    76% possession for the home side.
  • 39'
    The hosts are deservedly winning this one. It's been an impressive performance from Ronald Koeman's side.
  • 37'
    Barca look very comfortable here now.
  • 35'
    Getafe have yet to have a shot on target and I think this is done and dusted.

  • 33
    Messi scores again!!! Messi's free-kick is dealt with, Maksimovic hits the clearance high rather than far, the ball goes to Lenglet, who heads to Messi, his first shot strikes the far post, but he hits home the rebound. No chance now for Getafe.
  • 33'
    Free-kick to Barca to the side of the box.
  • 32'
    Barca win themselves a corner.
  • 31'
    I said Barca would score again, but I never thought it would be like that.
  • 28'
    Soria came charging out of his goal, but Chakla did what you never do in football, pass the ball to the middle. You always pass to the side in case that happens.
  • 27
    Own goal by Getafe in comical fashion!!! What an absolute gift!!! What was Chakla doing? Chakla passes the ball back to the GK from the edge of the area, but Soria comes charging out of his goal and he passes it past Soria into the goal!
  • 24'
    Barca are putting Getafe under plenty of pressure here and I think they'll score again soon.
  • 22'
    Getafe target this near side again and Cucurella's low cutback is dealt with by Pique.
  • 22'
    Barca have played well here up to now, but a bit of bad luck means they aren't winning.
  • 20'
    Barca threaten again, but Messi's effort is regulation for Soria.
  • 18'
    Barca are playing better and have another corner.
  • 16'

    Getafe level with good fortune!!! Own goal by Lenglet!!! Maksimovic passes to Cucurella on this near side, his cross finds Angel in the middle, his wayward shot strikes Lenglet on the right arm and completely does Ter Stegen!
  • 11'
    It looks Mingueza won't be able to continue and Dest is preparing to come on.
  • 9'
    Getafe look for an instant response, Kubo hits wide, but Mingueza seems to have a knee problem as he went for the ball.

    Messi isn't denied this time!! Busquets sends a lovely ball forward from his own half, Messi is onside, he gets the ball and runs into the box before firing past Soria! The GK gets his hand to it, but can't keep it out.

    Lenglet is booked for obstructing Iglesias, but I think the Getafe man was looking for the contact there.
