Barcelona are runner up of LaLiga after drawing against Getafe

Premier League

FC Barcelona confirmed second place in LaLiga after drawing 0-0 against Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Both Barcelona and Getafe needed a point from this fixture to fulfil their goal. Getafe wanted a point to be clear of the relegation zone. And Barcelona needed one point to secure second place on the league table and qualify for the Spanish Super Cup.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez said after the match: “We always want to win, but the draw served us.” 

“The minimum demand at Barcelona is to be in the Supercopa. Now we can reflect on how things have gone since we took over the team. We have turned things around. I wanted to win a trophy, which we haven’t managed. But we stopped the rot.

“We have played some great games. Now it’s about working on next season, but we also want to show that we can beat Villarreal in the final game. “
