Barcelona come from one goal behind to record a 2-1 win over Getafe in Saturday afternoon's entertaining La Liga contest in Madrid. Mixed fortunes for summer signingsMuch is expected of Dembele at Barcelona, but this full league debut certainly did not work out well for him, with an outing that had seen him make little real impact being cut short just before the half-hour mark.
But, the first-half performance Ernesto Valverde's side gave in the first-half wasn't up to scratch and Barcelona were to enter the half-time break 1-0 down courtesy of a stunning volley from Getafe's Japanese global Gaku Shibasaki.
Big-money signing Ousmane Dembele was forced off on his first league start for Barca with an apparent hamstring problem and the hosts took a deserved lead in the 39th minute thanks to a superb Gaku Shibasaki volley.
After Barca failed to properly clear a Getafe free-kick, Shibasaki was on hand to absolutely thunder a ideal volley past Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and into the top corner.
Barcelona completed the comeback vs. Getafe and remain ideal in La Liga courtesy of new-signing Paulinho's strike late on.
Japanese global Shibasaki took matters into his own hands as he opened the scoring for Getafe with a spectacular volley from the edge of the box in the 39th minute, 1-0.
