89′
Eric Abidal launches the ball into the box but it is cleared by Lopo. Barca retain possession and look to mount another attack.
 
86′
Miku breaks forward from his own half and drives towards the Barcelona goal with only Abidal and Valdes in his way! He opts for a snap shot that goes just by the left-hand post!
 
84′
Substitution Pablo Sarabia Pedro Ríos
 
84′
Just over five minutes for Getafe to hold on. What a truly famous victory this would be for Luis Garcia's side, and you can't say they haven't deserved it. They have defended magnificently.
 
82′
Barcelona are flooding forward. Cuenca gets the ball down the left and crosses into the middle but goalscorer Valera clears the ball.
 
79′
Pedro receives the ball just inside the Getafe box to the right and drives in before smashing a shot at goal but Moya makes a solid save and the ball goes out for a corner kick!
 
78′
Yellow Card Alberto Lopo
 
77′
Xavi's free kick is disappointing and goes straight into the Getafe wall. Sums up the performance of Barcelona so far. Just over 10 minutes to go for Pep Guardiola's side to equalise.
 
76′
Free kick to Barca in an excellent position after Lopa earns a booking for handling the ball.
 
74′
Messi goes on a typical run and holds off the strong challenges of the defenders before lashing a strike at goal but it is bravely blocked by the Getafe defence.
 
72′
Substitution Alexis Sánchez Pedro
 
72′
Substitution Maxwell Cuenca
 
71′
Yellow Card Diego Castro
 
71′
Barcelona make a double substitution. Cuenca and Pedro come on for Maxwell and Alexis.
 
69′
An unlikely goal for Getafe. If Barcelona lose this match then Real Madrid will have a six point league in La Liga. It would be such a damaging defeat.
 
67′
Assist Pablo Sarabia
 
67′
Goal Juan Valera
GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL FOR GETAFE!!!! Sarabia whips a corner kick into the centre of the Barcelona box and Valera bullets a header into the bottom corner! Getafe lead Barcelona!
 
65′
Substitution Thiago Alcántara Seydou Keita
 
65′
Getafe enjoying a period of possession at the moment. Moya launched the ball up the park and Miku controlled well before passing inside. The home side patiently playing the ball around.
 
63′
Messi comes deep and turns before driving towards the Getafe defence. The Argentine attempts to slip a pass through to Villa but it was excellently intercepted by Cata Diaz.
 
60′
Most of Barcelona's play is going down the right-hand side at the moment. Dani Alves is typically getting forward well and he is effectively linking up with Alexis Sanchez, who has switched wings since half time.
 
58′
Lionel Messi finds a pocket of space outside the box and clips a pass over the top of the Getafe defence to Maxwell but the Brazilian was flagged as offside.
 
56′
Dani Alves gets to the byline and whips a cross to the back post but Casquero jumps high to clear the ball away with a commanding header.
 
54′
Good interplay between Villa and Messi. A quick one-two on the edge of the box and the Argentine strikes at goal but Moya saves easily.
 
52′
Barca need to be more quick with their passing. They are being laboured in possession which is allowing Getafe to regroup into a defensive unit.
 
50′
The game is a tad disjointed at the moment. The Getafe players are attempting to get in the face of the Barca midfield but they are coming out of position which is generating some space in places.
 
49′
Substitution Mané Alberto Lopo
 
48′
HUUUUYYYY!! Xavi's set-piece reaches David Villa at the near post who glances a header at goal but it goes just over the crossbar!
 
47′
Yellow Card Francisco Casquero
 
46′
The second half is underway. We apologise for the disruption in the first half coverage. We can now continue with the second half entertainment.
 
 
Half time in Madrid. Getafe remain solid to deny Barcelona for the time being. Real Madrid went six points clear of Barca before this match so the pressure is on. Join us on 15 minutes for the second half!
 
44′
Yellow Card Piqué
 
44′
Very open end to the first half, Barcelona are flooding men forward but Getafe look dangerous on the counter attack.
 
41′
Chance for Getafe! Miku drives a cross along the Barca six yard box and Diego Castro attempts a snap shot at goal but it is brilliantly blocked by Dani Alves!
 
38′
Getafe have defended very effectively in this first half. Both full backs are coming inside and squeezing the space just outside the box, and Barca are having trouble penetrating.
 
32′
Barcelona continue to pass the ball around the Getafe half, but the home side remain solid to deny the Catalan side. There are signs of frustration in the Barca ranks.
 
31′
