Getafe hit back at Barca over ‘dry pitch’ claims

Getafe president Angel Torres has hit back at Barcelona over claims the pitch at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez was ‘dry’ on Saturday.

Getafe’s Gaku Shibasaki was injured during the game and is now ruled out for six weeks of action.

Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele was also injured in the game, which has led both boss Ernesto Valverde and keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to bemoan the state of the pitch.

However, Torres has hit back at that criticism, saying the pitch was in ‘perfect condition’.

“Our pitch was in perfect condition and was in line with the parameters of which La Liga demands,” Torres told Onda Cero on Monday night.

“People have complained about our pitch but there is no justification for these words – the league has even congratulated us on the state of our pitch!

“The measurement of the grass? Ours was 29mm and the league stipulates the grass must be between 20-30mm so we were within that range.

“Barcelona’s Coach was right in saying there was nothine else to say about the pitch, of course we are sad Dembele got injured and we wish him a quick recovery to action.”

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho saved the Catalan’s bluses with a late strike, coming on as a late substitute for Ivan Rakitic.

Getafe had taken the lead through a superb strike from Shibasaki, who hit a stunning half volley into the roof of the net.

Gerard Deulofeu had a hand in Barca’s equaliser, winning the ball back on the edge of the area, before finding Sergi Roberto, who played in Denis Suarez to score a superb goal.

Lionel Messi was at his ever best and he almost made it 3-1 late on, whilst soft penalty calls from the home side came after Samuel Umtiti produced a superb late challenge to deny them a share of the spoils.

Getafe face Celta Vigo on Thursday night at the Balaidos as they seek to get their second win of the new season, whilst Barcelona host Eibar at the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening, looking to make it five wins out of five games.
