Coutinho, Dembele and Mina not ready to star for Barcelona

Coutinho, Dembele and Mina not ready to star for Barcelona

Coutinho scored his first goal for Barca against Valencia in the Copa del Rey on Thursday night and Valverde said: "He works well in several positions".

"These are the busy months of the season and we're obliged to do well in all three competitions", said captain Andres Iniesta.

Getafe brought on former Arsenal and Crystal Palace midfielder Mathieu Flamini for Angel with 12 minutes to go in an attempt to close out the game and they were indebted to their goalkeeper for some impressive late saves.

The Colombian got forward well and had a couple of chances, but gave the ball away carelessly on one occasion which allowed Getafe to break and also struggled positionally, similarly to Coutinho and Dembele early on in their Barca careers.

Barcelona are held, at the Camp Nou, by Getafe in a goalless encounter. However, while Getafe have played better in their last six games, they have been bad away from home.

The first shot of the game came in the 40th minute against the run of play as striker Famara Diedhiou found an opening, but his shot flew wide of goals.

"We did enough to win but we have to recall that Getafe played well too".

"It was a game at home that was always going to be complicated and, in the end, it was nearly impossible to come out with three points, even though we have tried until the end".

That's not to say that Getafe are a bad side by any means.

When quizzed about Sunday's clash with Getafe, Valverde said: "I have spoken about this game before it is a hard one, the game against them early this season was the first game we were behind". The players need to reactivate themselves for the game as this kind of fixtures are title-deciding fixtures and nobody wants to take a risk at this point of the season.

On the stroke of half-time, the home side finally had the ball in the net when Suarez turned home Lionel Messi's free-kick only for the assistant referee to correctly rule the Uruguayan offside.
