Messi and Co drop points

La Liga leaders Barcelona failed to break down Getafe in a dull 0-0 league draw on Sunday (Feb 11), leaving the Catalans seven points clear at the top of the table.

Barcelona failed to score for the first time in La Liga this season as Getafe picked up a hard-fought point at the Nou Camp. The hosts remain unbeaten in the league and are seven points above second-placed Atletico Madrid.

Philippe Coutinho and Lionel Messi both forced saves from Getafe keeper Vicente Guaita, who is joining Crystal Palace on a free transfer this summer. Yerry Mina, making his league debut for Barca, headed a chance just wide.

Getafe, who move into the top half, almost scored a winner with the last kick as Vitorino Antunes' 30-yard free-kick was tipped over the bar by Marc-Andre ter Stegen - with no time for the corner to be taken.

Later on Sunday, Valencia came from behind to beat Levante 3-1 and move above Real Madrid into third place.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Roberto, Mina, Digne, Alba, Rakitic, Busquets, Coutinho, Messi, Suarez, Alcacer

Getafe: Guaita, Suarez, Bruno, Dakonam, Vitorino Antunes, Fajr, Arambarri, Portillo, Shibasaki, Diedhiou, Angel.
