Ernesto Valverde: 'We were lacking some freshness' | FCBarcelona.com

FC Barcelona were unable to secure three points against Getafe as they were held to a 0-0 draw. The manager said, “we were lacking some freshness and rhythm, especially in the first half. Getafe are a team who stop you from playing so you don’t get close to their box. As the game went on we attacked more and more and despite our best efforts it wasn’t to be. They defended their box well and we lacked a bit of spark."

“We have had a busy month and have just reached a final. We can’t win every game we play or be 100% all the time, and this is why the coming week without a game comes at a great time for us to recover.” More here.
