Barcelona didn’t hesitate to maintain their lead over their Rival Real Madrid in La Liga table on Sunday as they thrashed Getafe 1-0 at Spotify Camp Nou, goal courtesy to Pedri.
Xavi’s team are 44 points now as they maintain their three-point lead on Real, who defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-0.
Getafe are 16th and level with Celta Vigo and 18th-placed Real Valladolid on 17 points, just above the relegation zone thanks to a superior goal difference.
There were several changes made by Xavi Hernandez from his regular team, giving some key players rest while others were suspended, players like Robert Lewandowski, Frenkie de Jong and Ronald Araujo ahead to their Copa del Rey quarter-final clash against Real Sociedad on Wednesday.
Barcelona sensational star Pedri scored the lone goal in the 34th minute when he converted with a beautiful kick from Raphinha’ pass and tapped into an empty net.
But Ter Stegen was Barcelona’s saviour once again this season as he constantly saved Barcelona from their terrible mistakes.
Ter Stegen had two heroic saves in the match, including a very decisive situation 1v1 against Borja Mayoral. Then swept one last attack in the last ten seconds. Back like his hairline. What a goalkeeper!
