At the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Saturday, FC Barcelona faced Getafe in La Liga Here is the result, what happened and what we learned from the tie

Local press thought Koeman wouldn’t give up a rest just yet, but he did, and changed training as well.

Sergino Dest had to make his left-back debut anyway, due to Jordi Alba’s injury.However, there was also a 2020/2021 debut for Ousmane Dembele and Pedri in a 4-3- 3

No clear chance for either side, but there were signs of promise in a pair of runs Dembele and Messi managed to do, with the latter twisting players inside and out

Getafe broke through with Nemanja Maksimovic, who had space but shot straight at Neto in the 18th minute

But then Pedri’s fine work saw him find Dest on the edge of the box, starting to take his own The American handed it over to his captain, who let him rip with a bang curling brand that made the woodwork ring

And at the rate this one was going on the physical level, it seemed like a red card was a gift at one point For many, the hosts should have been reduced to nine men as Allan Nyom and Erick Cabaco in particularly were involved in controversial incidents which included the former Messi who broke his elbow

Dembele was criticized for a first touchdown and foul during a previous break, but the next he was right when he faced Messi who spotted the other Frenchman running to goal

Unable to keep his shot down and resurrect a tendency to open Barca’s account in 2019/2020, Grizi has yet to manage to stand out in this campaign

The bright spots were Pedri’s impact and Dest’s growing confidence, but it was Blues Griezmann and Dembele who let the team down They are clearly low on morale and seemed certain to be the first pair Koeman hung in the second installment

It took around 10 minutes after the referee’s whistle for the restart, but when De Jong knocked down Nyom, who should have already been sent off from the proceedings, Getafe received a penalty which Jaime Mata converted

Luuk de Jong scoring early for Sevilla last time around, before Philippe Coutinho equalized almost instantly, it would be another test of Koeman’s character with just over an hour to spare

Dembele rightly cut, Griezmann survived slaughter at Pedri’s expenseLet’s see what some of the most notable visitor artists to date in the reign of the Dream Team Legend might find

Standing over the teenager and screaming after a fight, Fati had also attempted a shot that went very far

Struggling to build something after Mata’s goal, it looked like they didn’t know they were 1-0

Griezmann out of his misery, Martin Braithwaite also suffered a rare race and was joined by Francisco Trincao as De Jong left the stage on the left

With Busquets the only remaining midfielder, Barca had to go bankrupt here with as much offensive firepower as possible

Braithwaite giving the ball deep in Getafe’s half with a misplaced pass to Trincao, the resulting counter-match spelled Cucho almost punishing the error when Neto tilted his shot at the bar

Later he was sharp on goal after fleeing the halfway line But like Griezmann from almost identical place he put too much power into his off target attempt

With three minutes to spare and downtime, there wasn’t much chance the La Masia fruit would have an impact

Barca raised the bet somewhat, with Djene Dakonam hitting his own bar in a moment of madness, but Getafe held on for the surprise

Real Madrid also embarrassed by Cadiz earlier, FCB could have entered El Clasico with three points clear at the top

Instead, they come in ninth, although there are other chances to make it to the top

Their unbeaten cut has been cut short, Koeman tasted defeat on the eve of club football’s biggest game and the Champions League group stages that have begun

Some maybe tired of their international duties, the Dutchman has to motivate his troops in a hurry and put them back on horseback
