Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
Barcelona move up to fourth following that win, while Getafe remain in 18th.
Depay's first-half strike seals a 2-1 win for Barcelona. All the action took place inside the first half. Within two minutes Barcelona took the lead, when Roberto bundled in Alba's pinpoint cross. But Getafe fought hard and equalised through Sandro after a neatly worked move, only for Depay to restore the lead with a brilliant run and finish. Getafe worked diligently in the second half to try and find a second equaliser, but Barcelona largely kept them at arm's length to ensure they finished with all three points.
90' + 6' FULL TIME: Barcelona 2-1 Getafe
90' + 5' Barcelona keep the ball inside the Getafe half as they try and see this game out.
90' + 3' Busquets bundles into Mata, presenting Getafe with a promising free-kick. They work it out wide to Suarez who clips in a deep cross, but Dest anticipates the danger and volleys it clear.   
90' + 1' Five minutes of stoppage time are added on. 
90' Getafe are working hard, but clear chances are hard to come by as we approach stoppage time.
88' Getafe work an intricate free-kick routine and manage to find Koffi in space, but his cross trickles into the side netting.  
C. Lenglet
Yellow Card
86' Lenglet is booked after a foul on Mata near the halfway line.  
86' Almost! Barcelona come close to finishing the game. Dest storms down the right flank, before picking Depay out with a brilliant cross, but the attacker's acrobatic volley slices over from close range!
E. Akurugu
D. Dakonam
84' Dakonam signals to the bench and is quickly replaced in defence by Koffi.
Óscar Mingueza
A. Griezmann
84' Griezmann departs after a notably quiet game, with Mingueza taking his place.  
84' Araujo has it in the back of the net following a cleverly worked free-kick, but the flag is quickly raised for offside.   
82' Two fouls in quick succession for Dakonam, who must be getting close to a second yellow card. 
80' Timor robs Gaviria on the edge of the box, before feeding it out wide to Suarez but he slices his cross behind.  
78' Getafe are continuing to work hard for an equaliser, but time is beginning to run out for them.
J. Macías
E. Ünal
75' Unal makes way for Macias up top.
Nico González
M. Braithwaite
74' Braithwaite also goes down injured and despite it looking like a minor knock, he's quickly replaced by Gonzalez.
Gavi
Sergi Roberto
73' Roberto can't continue and he makes way for Gavira. Despite his day ending through injury, he can be pleased with his contribution for the hosts today - including that opening goal.
73' Roberto crashes into Timor off the ball and it looks like there'll be a brief delay for treatment.
71' Mata could be key for Getafe if they get back into this game. Mata has been involved in three goals in four games against Barcelona in La Liga (two goals and one assist).
69' Dest gets to the byline and floats in a tantalising cross, but there's no attacker on hand in the six-yard box and Getafe clear.  
67' Ter Stegen is forced to punch Olivera's dangerous cross clear, but it falls fortuitously to Depay who manages to hold it up and win a free-kick for his side.  
65' Barcelona are largely controlling this game still, but they'll be desperate for a third goal to kill this one off.    
S. Dest
Emerson
63' Emerson makes way for Dest at right-back.
62' Chance! Depay shows superb vision to lift an angled pass into Roberto, but the midfielder opts to attempt a header and it loops harmlessly into the arms of Soria.
M. Depay
Yellow Card
62' Depay is booked for a cynical trip.
Timor
Carles Aleñá
61' Meanwhile, Getafe's third sub sees Alena make way for Timor. Alena put in a lively display - featuring a pretty assist - but his day is finished now. 
Mata
Sandro Ramírez
61' Sandro has put in a superb 60 minutes up top, but he's replaced by Mata now.
61' Close! Getafe race away on the break again, and this time they construct a flowing move that ends with Maksimovic firing straight at Ter Stegen from 18 yards.   
59' Depay looks to link up with Griezmann on the edge of the box, but Mitrovic picks off his pass. 
57' Arambarri tries his luck from distance again, but his 25-yard strike flashes over the bar.
55' Chance! Unal holds it up near the touchline as he awaits support. Eventually, he spots the late runner of Alena and picks him out inside the six-yard box! However, Emerson does brilliantly to stay with Alena and after a few twists and turns, he blocks the eventual shot at goal.
53' Sandro wins a free-kick from Araujo near the touchline, but the resulting set-piece amounts to nothing.
51' Mitrovic rises highest from a Getafe corner, but his header loops safely over the bar.   
50' Chance! Jankto finds some space on the break and charges down the left wing before hitting a low shot towards the near post that Ter Stegen pushes wide.
48' Despite three goals in the first half, it was a tight affair: both teams managed just three shots each.
D. Suárez
Juan Iglesias
46' Iglesias is replaced by Suarez at half time.
46' Barcelona kick off the second half.  
Sandro was a constant menace in that half and Barcelona will need to mark him tightly to avoid conceding further goals.
Barcelona take a 2-1 lead into the break. The hosts started quickly: within a few minutes Roberto bundled in Alba's cross to give them an instant lead. But Getafe responded well. They stayed in the game, and then Sandro worked a neat move with Alena, before firing in a crisp strike. It didn't last long though - Depay clinically finished off a counter to restore the lead. The game tightened up from there though, leaving us nicely posied for the second half. 
45' + 5' HALF TIME: Barcelona 2-1 Getafe 
45' + 3' Depay approaches the box ominously again, but this time Dakonam fends him off. 
45' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time are added on.
44' That Arambarri strike was a warning to the hosts and it looks like they're just trying to settle the game down before half time.   
42' Close! Arambarri cracks off a vicious strike from 25 yards and although it's straight at Ter Stegen, the goalkeeper spills it! However, Ter Stegen bravely gets up and dives on the loose ball, before Unal crashes into him. The game is briefly delayed Ter Stegen to be treated, but he's okay to continue.   
40' Maksimovic's corner prompts a scramble inside the six-yard box, but the referee quickly blows up for a free-kick.  
38' Sandro beats Emerson with a brilliant piece of skill before he opts to pass back due to a lack of support. The Getafe striker has been superb today.
36' Barcelona look to secure their lead for the time being with a long spell of defensive possession.
34' Getafe look to equalise for the second time today, but Sandro is judged to have handled on the edge of the box.
32' That was too easy from Getafe's perspective. They didn't absorb much pressure at all, before allowing Depay to dance into the box and fire a fierce effort past Soria.
F. de Jong
Assist
30' It was a simple pass from De Jong to keep the move flowing by sending it out wide to Depay. But the attacker turned it into an assist with a brilliant run and finish!  
M. Depay
Goal
30' DEPAY! 2-1! Barcelona restore their lead. De Jong feeds Depay on the edge of the box,  and the attacker stands up Dakonam, before cutting inside and slamming a low shot in at the near post from eight yards!
R. Araújo
Yellow Card
27' Araujo halts Sandro's bustling run down the left flank and earns himself a yellow card.    
26' Unal goes down off the ball after brushing past Lenglet, infuriating the home fans. The referee remains unmoved though and the game continues.
25' Olivera looks to kickstart a counter-attack for the visitors with a huge switch of play, but Lenglet is alive to the danger and cuts it out.
23' Well, that was a superb response from Getafe. They could have easily caved after an early goal, but instead, the visitors have carefully worked their way back into the game!
21' The hosts work a corner short, but Alba's eventual delivery is headed away.
Carles Aleñá
Yellow Card
21' Dakonam is booked after a cynical trip on Depay.
Carles Aleñá
Assist
18' Alena realised that Sandro wanted an instant pass back into space, and he obliged enabling the striker to fire in a crisp low strike beyond Ter Stegen.
Sandro Ramírez
Goal
18' SANDRO! 1-1! Barcelona repeatedly fail to clear their lines on the edge of the box, and Emerson's tackle falls to Sandro. The Getafe striker plays a neat one-two with Alena on the edge of the box, before sweeping a low, 18-yard strike into the bottom left corner!   
17' Braithwaite looks to run in behind and latch onto De Jong's throughball, but he fouls Iglesias and Getafe win a free-kick.   
15' Dakonam goes down clutching his face after colliding with Braithwaite and the game is briefly paused for him to receive treatment. After a delay, the defender is okay to continue.   
13' After a promising start to this match, Depay will be hoping to make his mark later in the game. Depay has either scored or registered an assist in his opening two La Liga appearances and could become the first Barcelona player to be involved in a goal in each of his first three appearances in the competition since Cesc Fàbregas in 2011 (three goals and four assists).
11' Barcelona work an intricate move that ends disappointingly. Emerson's weak cross is hacked away by Iglesias at the back post.  
8' Close! Alena jinks inside from the right flank, before firing a low shot from 25 yards that fizzes just wide of the near post.
6' Getafe make their first foray forward. Alena swings in a cross from deep, but Araujo gets in front of Sandro and hooks it clear.
4' Well, that's an ideal start for Barcelona. After their unconvincing draw last week, there could have been some early nerves today - but they've quickly erased those fears. 
Jordi Alba
Assist
2' That was a brilliant cross from Alba. It was a quick, powerful delivery leaving the Getafe defence hesitant in case it deflected in, allowing Roberto to profit.
Sergi Roberto
Goal
2' ROBERTO! 1-0! Barcelona immediately take the lead. Depay sweeps a pass out wide to Alba who drives towards the byline. The full-back then drills in a low cross that narrowly misses Braithwaite at the front post, only for Roberto to ghost in front of Jankto and bundle it in from five yards!
1' Getafe get the first half underway.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Getafe have won just one of their last 12 La Liga away games (D2 L9), 2-0 against Huesca in April, failing to score in eight of those matches.
Getafe make just two changes. Suarez and Vitolo drop out for Iglesias and Jankto.
Barcelona make four changes to the team that drew with Athletic. Most of these switches come in defence: Dest, Erik Garcia and Gerard Pique all make way for Emerson, Araujo and Lenglet. Meanwhile, Pedri is rested with Roberto coming in.
SUBS: Jaime Mata, Diego Conde, Ruben Yanez, Jose Macias, Ignasi Miquel, Chinchu, Koffi, Damian Suarez, David Timor, Hugo Duro.
GETAFE (4-4-2): David Soria; Juan Iglesias, Djene Dakonam, Stefan Mitrovic, Matias Olivera; Carles Alena, Mauro Arambarri, Nemanja Maksimovic, Jakub Jankto; Enes Unal, Sandro Ramirez.
SUBS: Inaki Pena, Yusuf Demir, Nicolas Gonzalez, Oscar Mingueza, Miralem Pjanic, Samuel Umtiti, Rey Manaj, Riqui Puig, Sergino Dest, Neto, Philippe Coutinho, Pablo Gaviria.
