Ousmane Dembele fit for Barcelona's clash against Getafe

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.

Barca are now in action against Getafe at home in La Liga, having beaten the Madrid-based side 2-1 at the Coliseum in a hard-fought match earlier on this season.

Valverde added that Gerard Pique is doubtful to feature against Getafe as he is yet to fully recover from a knee injury picked up in the Catalan derby against Espanyol.

Arguably the most encouraging element of Barcelona's performance was a classy full-debut from Yerry Mina at centre-back, made all the more impressive by left-back Lucas Digne being played out of position alongside the Colombia global at the heart of defence. Valverde will hope that changes quickly, though, as Barca seek trophies on three fronts in the remainder of this season.

Coverage is set to start at 3:10pm. He could be partnered by Sergio Busquets.

"Normally the months of January and February are like this", Iniesta said.

The Blaugrana were held to a stalemate by Jose Bordalas's charges at Camp Nou on Sunday, failing to register a shot on target during the first half.

Getafe head to Barcelona unbeaten in four matches, drawing their last three, and are 11th in the table.

In the United States, the game can be watched live on television on beIN Sports and kicks off at 10:15 ET.

Although boss Ernesto Valverde will be less than impressed his star-studded outfit were unable to overcome the Madrid-based club, who were on the receiving end of consecutive 6-0 defeats in Catalonia during their previous two meetings, the 54-year-old will still hold comfort in their seven-point lead over Atletico Madrid, who are the only conceivable challengers to this year's league title.

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde could be faced with a defensive crisis when his side host Getafe in La Liga on Sunday.

Lionel Messi has scored 11 goals in his 11 games against Getafe at the Camp Nou in all competitions, the first of those his famous goal in 2007 which was reminiscent of Diego Maradona's slalom versus England in the 1986 World Cup.
