Barcelona teenager Ilaix Moriba couldn’t hide his delight after getting more first-team minutes under his belt on Thursday against Getafe.

The 18-year-old came on at half-time of the 5-2 win as manager Ronald Koeman made two changes at the break with Barca 3-1 to the good.

Moriba and Ronald Araujo replaced Gerard Pique and Clement Lenglet for the second 45 minutes, and the youngster admitted he is loving life at the Camp Nou.

“I am living a dream and I hope it never ends,” he said. We depend on us and we have to go to all the games the same way.”

“There is good vibes in the dressing room, that is reflected in the results you are seeing.”

Barca did go flat in the second half and allowed Getafe back into it when Ronald Araujo gave away a penalty and the visitors made it 3-2. However, late goals from Araujo and Antoine Griezmann ensured the hosts ran out 5-2 winners to keep their title charge on track.
