Koeman suffer first defeat as Blaugrana boss

Barcelona failed to capitalise on Real Madrid’s earlier slip-up, falling to a 1-0 defeat against Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. 

The visitors edged what was a quiet first half, where Lionel Messi came closest to netting when his shot crashed off the post from Sergino Dest’s cutback. Antoine Griezmann squandered a glorious chance to open the scoring too, blazing miles over after being put through by Pedri.

The Blaugrana struggled to create anything of note in the second half, and fell behind when Jaime Mata converted from the spot after Frenkie de Jong carelessly brought down Djene.

Ronald Koeman’s side didn’t come close to equalising until right at the death, when Djene headed a cross onto his own crossbar.
