The game started with an open cloth for the home team, who had won the Super Cup in Saudi Arabia against Real Madrid earlier this week. For that occasion, the players of Getafe formed a guard of honor for Barça.
Sergio Busquets was also honored with the home team for his 700th match in the shirt of Barcelona.
After the festivities, it was also Barça that took the lead. After a few warnings, it was Pedri who was able to score 10 minutes before half-time, on a pass from Raphinha.
A stiff Getafe gave little away in the remainder of the match and was also dangerous in the 2nd half. Borja Mayoral couldn’t get his header inside the box. The former Real Madrid striker had also scored in the 1st half, but that goal was rejected due to offside.
Barcelona could not score anymore either, but thanks to the 13th clean sheet of the season, one goal was enough for victory.
