Ernesto Valverde happy with Barcelona’s win over Getafe

The manager offered his thoughts after the match

Getafe CF v FC Barcelona - La Liga

Ernesto Valverde seemed pretty happy with his Barcelona team after Saturday’s 2-0 win over Getafe in La Liga.

The champions finally picked up a win on the road through goals from Luis Suarez and Junior Firpo.

Valverde said the team’s first-half goal helped them settle down at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and reckons it was a decent performance from the visitors.

“It was important not to make mistakes early on like we have done in other games,” he said.

“That was fundamental. The goal calmed us down and, from there, we imposed ourselves well. We didn’t give much away and had chances to score more.

”If you want to win La Liga you have to win a lot of games away from home, not just your home games.

“Getafe were a tough rival, it’s a hard place to come and we’ve played well. Now we have three days to prepare for Inter.”

The win leaves Barca two points behind Real Madrid at the top of the table, although Real Sociedad can go above Los Blancos if they beat Sevilla on Sunday night.
