Barcelona wins 2-1 over Getafe, Spain by Depay

This was Depay's second league goal in Barcelona's first season without Lionel Messi.

After the financial difficulties of Catalan, Messi was set to make his debut with Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.

Depay was Barcelona's most important offseason signing. He also scored in the team’s draw at Athletic Bilbao. After a clever move in front of a defender in the area, Depay scored in the 30th minute with a low shot at the near post.

After a Jordi Alba cross, Sergi Roberto opened the scoring at the Camp Nou Stadium.

Roberto said that oeWe were coming off a draw and needed to win the international break. He had also scored in Barcelona’s 4-2 victory against Real Sociedad. "oeIt was difficult, but we won the match. '

Getafe lost three straight league games to begin the season. In the 18th, Sandro RamArez scored a goal that equalized the score. This was Getafe’s first league goal for the season.

RamArez, a former Barcelona footballer, said that "it's been an awful start to the season but we must keep working hard to recover."

Martin Braithwaite from Barcelona, who had scored two goals in the opening against Sociedad, was disallowed for offside shortly before the match ended.

Depay almost added his second goal from close range in 85th but the ball went over the crossbar.

Camp Nou was home to more than 26,000 people.

Barcelona's veteran defender Gerard PiquA(c), was absent due to a muscle injury.

The Catalan team has seven points. This is the same number as Real Madrid, which won 1-0 at Real Betis. Sevilla, Valencia, and Mallorca all have seven points.

If Villarreal is defeated at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Sunday, AtlA(c]tico Madrid will be the only team to have three consecutive victories and can start the league as the champion.

Sevilla, which also had two wins entering the weekend, was held to a draw at Elche on Saturday.
