FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde highlighted the reaction of his team to going a goal behind against Getafe, in his post-match press conference: "It was a tough game and it cost us a lot, against a rival that pressed high against us. The pitch didn’t help, because it was dry and the ball didn’t go too far, but we came back and this proves our power of reaction in a difficult game."

It took until the midway point of the second half for Barça to break their opponents down and Valverde noted the difficulties in doing so. "Getafe were pushing and constantly threatening us. They closed down well and put us under a lot of pressure,” he said.

Asked about the players who won the match for the Blaugrana at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, Valverde reiterated the importance of all the players he has at his disposal: "The squad is big, the League has just started, all players deserve to play." On Dembélé, who had to leave the pitch in the 28th minute, he noted; "It's too early to make an injury assessment, but it's a pity, because he was playing well. Hopefully it's nothing. "
