Let’s have a look at the Player Ratings of Getafe’s surprising victory against FC Barcelona, a match played at Alfonso Perez Coliseum.
After a fresh defeat at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, FC Barcelona ended a shocking Saturday against Getafe. Ronald Koeman’s squad was extremely off target throughout 90 minutes against a combative local team. This latest result goes directly in line with Real Madrid’s historic defeat against Cadiz, and makes us realize the Spanish La Liga’s deplorable state.
The Dutch manager decided to give Antoine Griezmann a fresh chance to prove himself with another start. He played next to Dembele and Messi on the attack and had his chance to score but he blew it in ridiculous fashion. The French forward was on his own against the goalie and sent his attempt to the moon.
After another missed opportunity, perhaps Koeman will give chances to other players who want to impress the manager. Messi also sent a shot to the post before half-time, all of Barcelona’s attack was erratic today.
Mata gets a gift from De Jong.
Ten minutes into the second half, VAR stepped in to make a penalty call after a De Jong foul inside the box. Jaime Mata transformed this chance into the only goal that this match registered at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Koeman’s modifications made a major difference and the game got a lot more entertaining.
Ansu Fati gave Barcelona a fresh outlook but he wasn’t lucky in front of goal. Meanwhile, Getafe’s ‘Cucho’ Hernandez had two major missed chances near the end of the game. In fact, one was exactly the same as Griezmann’s first-half fiasco. In the end, Barcelona wasn’t lucky and they get a fresh defeat this early in the season.
