Luis Suarez's first-half goal was correctly disallowed, after the Uruguay striker strayed offside as he volleyed home Messi's free-kick.

"Our opponents defended really well and we were unable to score", Valverde told beIN Sports.

Barcelona's advantage over second-placed Atletico Madrid has been trimmed from 11 points at the start of this month to only seven now.

"We lacked a bit of spark to do something else". "It is odd for us not to score here at our stadium". Sure, they're a little thin on defense right now, with Samuel Umtiti suspended, Thomas Vermaelen hurt, and Gerard Pique struggling with fitness, but they're still Barcelona.

Coutinho was once again at it as he unleashed a dipping shot only to be superbly saved by Guaita after 57 minutes of action.

"It's not that anything was missing from our game", Iniesta said, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele came on in the second half for his first appearance since his latest spell on the sidelines, but the young France forward was also incapable of breaking down the Getafe back line.

The result ended a run of six straight defeats in all competitions for Valencia.

Defending champion Real Madrid routed Real Sociedad 5-2 at home on Saturday behind a hat trick by Cristiano Ronaldo. The players need to reactivate themselves for the game as this kind of fixtures are title-deciding fixtures and nobody wants to take a risk at this point of the season.

Speaking ahead is Sunday's clash with Getafe, Valverde said: "People can have a lot of hopes for many things, it is good that they do, we like that, but we're professionals".

The Spain midfielder ultimately came on as a substitute in the second half against Getafe and he could not inspire Barca to victory either as Getafe produced an impressive defensive display to deny the home side, something they nearly managed in the return fixture which they narrowly lost 2-1 after leading 1-0.
