Post.
FT: Getafe 1-0 Barca! A Mata penalty was the difference between the two sides here. Barca were very poor, especially in the second half and they have a lot to work on over the next few days. The closest they came to scoring in the second half was when Djene headed against his own post in stoppage time. Messi did little apart from a post shot in the first period.
98'
Timor goes for the goal from the free-kick, it goes just wide of the goal and it's full time!!
97'
Barca's best chance has come from Djene. That says a lot!
97'
Barca lose the ball, Molllejo runs towards the Barca goal and Dest sees yellow. Getafe will run out the clock here.
96'
Getafe hit their own post!!! Unbelievable!! Dest's cross is headed by Djene against his own post! Incredible!!
95'
Getafe sub: Mollejo on for Maksimovic.
94'
Pique wins the ball after jumping for an aerial ball, it balls to Messi inside the box who hits wide!
93'
Olivera is booked for trying to waste time.
93'
Cucho Hernandez is absolutely gutted at missing that chance just before he was subbed.
92'
Red card!!! One of the Getafe coaching staff is given a straight red. Presumably for something he said. He's not happy about it. It's Bordalas' assistant.
91'
Good play by Braithwaite sees Djene almost turn the ball into his own net! Nothing comes of the corner. Six added minutes.
90'
Getafe sub: Timor on for Cucho.
89'
Cucho!!! What are you doing? The Getafe man is one on one on the counter after Cucurella finds him and he hits well over the crossbar!! He got carried away there.
88'
Messi launches a free-kick into the box which Getafe's solid defence easily deals with-
87'
Barca sub; Dest on for S Roberto.
84'
Barca's response to falling behind has been very disappointing to say the least.
83'
Off the crossbar!!! A long ball forward is sent to Cucho who sees off Lenglet and Neto makes a fine stop onto the crossbar! Corner.
81'
Damian Suarez wins a corner off Lenglet.
80'
Barca sub: Braithwaite on for De Jong.
79'
Barca sub. Trincao comes on and Griezmann makes way.
79'
De Jong passes to Fati, who sees his first shot saved, Soria can't hold on and he gets the ball at the second attempt. Tight call that one.
78'
Cucurella has a shot which is saved and then Barca break!!
77'
Fati goes down wanting a spot kick and the ref says Arambarri won the ball. Not much in that.
76'
Getafe win a corner here and Barca manage to clear.
76'
Barca are running out of time here and they certainly don't look lime scoring.
73'
Nyom has his name taken after bringing down Busquets. Cynical.
72'
A dangerous Getafe set piece sees Griezmann have to concede the corner.
70'
Getafe sub: Mata goes off and receiving treatment and Unal is in.
70'
The away side have been far from impressive this evening.
69'
Ansu Fati has a strike which flies wide of Soria's right hand post.
65'
A Barca corner by Messi is well caught by Soria.
64'
Chance for Pique as he heads over Messi's free-kick.
63'
Free-kick to Barca on this near side after a foul by Nyom.
62'
Barca double sub: Fati and Coutinho on for Pedri and Dembele.
61'
Messi looks to find S Roberto and ends up giving an overhit pass.
60'
How will Barca react to this? Could Barca and RM both lose on the same day?
57'
That was a controversial penalty. I'm not convinced that was a spot kick and I think Djene was looking for it, but that was never going to be overturned by VAR as there was contact. One of those.
56'
Mata sends Neto the wrong way!! The ball goes to the GK's right and Neto dives to the left.
55'
Getafe attack, the ball breaks to Djene and Djene goes down under F de Jong's challenge. I think Djene may have deliberately put himself in front of the Barca man there. That's a dicey call.
54'
The set piece is blocked and Getafe get a second chance,
53'
Dest concedes the corner.
52'
Getafe get a free-kick just inside Barca's half of the field.
51'
Busquets chips a pass looking for Messi into the box, but the ball isn't accurate enough.
50'
A foul is given against Nyon on F De Jong. He doesn't agree with the call. Bordalas is protesting and is given a final warning.
48'
Dembele dribbles past two opponents, but he can't get past the third and Getafe boot it clear.
46'
Getafe get us going again!
45'
HT: Getafe 0-0 Barcelona!! Half-time in Getafe! A competitive first half is goalless here. Both sides had good moves early on, but Barca picked up in the last 20 minutes. Messi's post shot was the best chance for either side while Griezmann should have hit the target when he was one on one. Maksimovic has come the closest for the hosts, but he was denied by Neto. The referee has been erratic with his cards, but apart from that, it's been good. Back for more in a bit!
45'
Free-kick for Getafe just outside the area.
43'
58% possession for the away side.
42'
Messi isn't happy as the wall is quite clearly not 10 yards and the free-kick is simple for Soria.
41'
Sergi Roberto gets a card for something he said, I suppose.
40'
Nyom brings down Messi just outside the box and he catches Messi in the face with his arm. No card for this when it was clear. The ref's decision making continues to baffle us...
37'
It looks this will be 0-0 at the interval. Barca have picked up in the last 10-15 minutes, but a draw is fair.
35'
And another card!! This time for the Getafe coach Pepe Bordalas for protesting. On the pitch, Barca are caught offside from the free-kick.
33'
Barca win a free-kick near the Getafe goal. The ref tries to play an advantage, but then brings it back.
31'
Mata has a pop from outside the area but it goes wide.
30'
And that came just seconds after Lenglet nearly turned Messi's free-kick in. Barca picking up.
30'
Griezmann!!! How did you miss that? Dembele starts the move, Pedri takes over and then finds Griezmann who blazes it over the bar! He had to hit the target.
29'
Three yellows in six minutes and the game hasn't been remotely dirty.
28'
Pedri is caught by Cabaco and this was a bad challenge. The ref's on fire!!! This was a card though.
27'
Mata has his name taken after catching Lenglet with a stray arm. That's a ridiculous call. The arm catches Lenglet on the upper chest and he goes down holding his face. Play acting from Lenglet and very poor refereeing...
25'
Cucurella sends in the free-kick, but it comes to nothing.
23'
Pique sees yellow for catching Cucho in the face with a stray arm. Bit harsh.
20'
Messi strikes the post!!! That was close! Pedri starts the move before passing to Dest and then Messi who strikes the woodwork from just inside the area.
18'
Maksimovic!!! Barca lose the ball, Cucho feeds Maksimovic and Neto saves from close range! The first clear opening.
17'
Arambarri sends a cross into the box which beats everyone.
15'
No score so far here at the moment and Barca have done very little up to now.
12'
Another free-kick for Getafe about 35-40 yards from goal.
12'
Barca counter through Dembele and his pass to Pedri comes to nothing.
11'
The free-kick is taken short and then Cucurella's delivery sees Busquets knock it behind for a corner. Nyom seems to be offside, but gets away with it.
10'
Free-kick to Getafe by the far corner flag after Nyom is brought down by Dest.
8'
Cucurella is penalised after charging in on Sergi Roberto.
7'
Getafe have the ball on this near side through Olivera, he crosses and Barca head away.
4'
Cucho looks to find Mata just outside the Barca box, but the latter fails to control the ball.
2'
Good play by Barca early on here without creating anything.
1'
Barca win the first free-kick of the game.
1'
Barca get us going from left to right in the pink!!! Getafe in blue.
Prev.
FT: Getafe 1-0 Barcelona!!! All over in Getafe and it's a huge blow for Barca after failing to take advantage of RM's loss to Cadiz. A penalty converted by Jaime Mata after Djene was fouled by De Jong was the difference between the sides. Koeman's men were very poor, especially in the second half. The closest Barca came were a Messi post shot and then when Djene headed against his own post in added time.
Prev.
The players are out here!!
Prev.
Getafe lost 3-0 at Sociedad before the international break. Cabaco is in for Etxeita from that match while the rest of the team is unchanged.
Prev.
Barca make four changes from the 1-1 with Sevila. Lenglet and new signing Sergino Dest replace Araujo and Alba. Youngster Pedri comes in for Coutinho while Dembele starts ahead of Ansu Fati.
Prev.
Barcelona host Hungarian side Ferencvaros in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Prev.
Messi starts despite talk of him resting following his Argentina commitments.
Prev.
Cesar Soto Grado is the referee for this one while Ricardo de Burgos Bengoextea is the VAR.
Prev.
16 degrees and dry in Getafe this evening.
Prev.
Both teams are on 7 points, but Real Madrid have just been beated at home to Cadiz. RM, Cadiz and Granada are top all with 10 points (Cadiz have played 6 games, the others 5). If there's a winner here, they will go joint top with those. If Barca do it, they will have a game in hand on all of those as this is only their fourth game! Next week's Clasico is already looking huge.
Prev.
Barcelona XI: Neto (GK); Dest, Lenglet, Pique, S Roberto; Dembele, De Jong, Pedri, Busquets, Griezmann; Messi.
Prev.
Getafe XI: David Soria (GK); Olivera, Cabaco, Djene, D Suarez; Cucurella, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Nyom; Cucho and Mata.
