One week before the Clasico which will oppose them, the two giants of La Liga do not reassure… A few hours after Real Madrid, surprised at home by the promoted Cádiz (0-1), FC Barcelona lost on the ground of Getafe (0-1) this Saturday on the occasion of the 6th day of the championship.
FC Barcelona lost in Getafe (1-0), and lost for the first time this season, missing the opportunity to come back to Real Madrid, leader of the Spanish league, which also fell at home against Cadiz on Saturday for the 6th day of the championship.
The big winner of the weekend was Atlético Madrid, who won 2-0 at Celta Vigo and are now two points behind Real with one game less.
Barça still looking for the way
Barça’s French forward Antoine Griezmann was again disappointing, missing a golden goal in the half hour that could have changed the course of the game.
Lionel Messi also missed a huge chance in added time, when he shot wide after a Gerard Piqué save.
The deserved victory for Getafe, was obtained thanks to Jaime Mata’s penalty (his second goal this season), who approaches Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga with ten points, like Cadiz and Granada.
The defeat could have been more salty for Ronald Koeman’s Barça, with several missed chances by Getafe.
