Conceded three goals today but saved many more. He stopped Messi on at least two one-on-ones in the second-half.
It was his poor control that led to Pedro's goal. Aside from that, Diaz was poor at the back and allowed the Barca attackers to stab him wherever they wanted.
Villa and Messi ripped the heart out of him as they destroyed him at right-back.
Like the rest of the Getafe backine, Ortiz was a mess at the back and failed to defend properly.
Dani Alves tore him to pieces as he had the free run of his flank and whipped in many a well-chiselled cross.
Showed enthusiasm in the opening minutes but then started to fade and didn't reappear.
Lost control of the midfield right from the start and failed to recover as the match developed.
Went close with a header but left his side when they needed him as he went for a needless challenge.
Came slightly alive at the start of the second-half and it was his cross that Pique handled inside the Barcelona penalty area in the second session.
Manu del Moral
Looked very good in the second-half and was Getafe's main threat in the attacking department. Provided crosses and also cut inside on several occasions. Scored from the spot.
Was hardly prominent in the first-half and didn't do much better in the second session.
Wasn't tested until Barcelona had secured the victory but was alert when he was asked to make saves and also denied Arizmendi late on.
Probably saw more of the ball than any other player today and his crosses were exquisite as well. Played Messi and Villa through on goal from the right in the first half-too but left gaps at the back in the second-half.
Didn't do much wrong really but his handball offence for which he was booked and subsequently sent off was silly. It did increase pressure on the Barca backline.
Was troubled at the back in the second session but he stood stern and calm unlike the red-carded Pique.
Played well down the right flank and helped in attack. Provided a balanced performance today.
Had a good and confident game in defensive midfield and put in the right challenges at the right time.
Didn't have the best of games today as he didn't appear very confident or controlling in his central midfield role. Showed lack of pace that encouraged Getafe players to come at Barca but he was still crucial in laying the platform for Barca's attacks.
Like Villa, Pedro too has regained his confidence and scored an opportunistic but important goal. Helped in attack throughout
The World Cup winner was on song tonight and played brilliantly for most of the match. Created chances for Villa and Messi and also sent them through on a number of occasions.
Took his goal very well and also combined well with Messi, especially in the first-half. The World Cup winner faded in the second session but he is not short of confidence in front of goal any more.
Scored one and provided the assists for the others. Could have added more and also had a goal disallowed. The world's finest and most talented footballer continued to rock.
- 1 O. Ustari
- 23 Marcano
- 21 Pedro Mosquera
- 6 Borja
Made important runs at the Barca defence and injected pace and intent into the Getafe attack in the final 20 or so minutes.
Didn't do much after replacing Casquero in the 64th minute.
Could have etched his name on the scoresheet at least twice since he came on but missed his chances in an utter show of hilarity.
