Barcelona 2-1 Getafe: Ter Stegen's unbelievable saves seal Catalans narrow win

Angel Rodriguez's goal inspired a second-half fightback from Getafe but Barcelona held firm thanks to Ter Stegen to seal an unconvincing victory at Camp Nou.

Antoine Griezmann ended a five-match scoreless streak in LaLiga as Barcelona survived a second-half fightback to claim a 2-1 victory over third-placed Getafe.

Needing a win to put themselves level on points with table-toppers Real Madrid, Quique Setien's side started sluggishly on Saturday and would have gone behind if not for VAR.

Barca made their good fortune count, though, Lionel Messi - on his 350th official appearance at Camp Nou - setting up Griezmann to open the scoring in the 33rd minute.

Sergi Roberto doubled Barca's tally before half-time, but Barca-linked Angel Rodriguez set up a grandstand finish, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen just managing to deny Getafe an equaliser as the champions held on. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
