Getafe 1 Barcelona 2

Getafe 1 Barcelona 2

Gaku Shibasaki's wonder strike just before half-time gave Getafe a shock lead against Barca, who lost Ousmane Dembele to injury, but Ernesto Valverde's substitutes made all the difference, with Denis and Paulinho both getting on the scoresheet.

Paulinho scored his first goal for Barcelona late in the second half of a 2-1 win over Getafe, upholding the club's ideal start to the Spanish league on Saturday.

The Brazil global netted his first Barca goal with six minutes remaining as Ernesto Valverde's men recovered from a terrible first half to claim a fourth straight top-flight victory in 2017-18.

Entering this fixture Barcelona had taken a maximum nine points from the nine available and hadn't conceded a goal.

That was followed by the ball dropping in front of Shibasaki, who smacked a fine volley into the roof of Ter Stegen's net to become the first Japanese to score against Barca and Madrid in official matches.

Getafe had a wonderful chance to take the lead in the 17th minute when a deflected Shibasaki cross fell for Molina at the far post, but the striker turned just the wrong side of the post as Barcelona survived another unsafe moment.

Denis Suarez equalized in the second half.

Ousmane Dembele was forced off the field with a suspected hamstring injury halfway through the first half and was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu.

It was Paulinho that came up trumps in the 84th minute, however, with the Brazilian finding the far corner with a terrific finish to register his first Barcelona goal, which proved to be the difference on the afternoon.

Barcelona completed the comeback vs. Getafe and remain ideal in La Liga courtesy of new-signing Paulinho's strike late on.

And Paulinho was happy to get off the mark for his new side.
