Fate handed Getafe the unenviable task of trying to stop both Clasico teams in the space of a week. They did a decent job against Real Madrid getting a point, which goes a long way to ease the relegation anxieties, but yesterday against Barca they found the going tough. Scoring 2 goals with having one shot on target says it all. Messi has hit ominous form at the right time during this hotly contested run in. Who is at fault for the hilarious own goal by Sofian Chakla? Both players.The shout came in far too late by keeper Soria and Chakla should have looked up instead he had his head down not seeing where his goalie is. A player worth his salt should always be able to control the ball whilst looking up. The geometry , the angles that Messi draws in his mind are mind boggling. Just watch his second goal. If you thought he was finished you got a reality check here.

Los Blancos look like the first team of La Liga’s leading trio to stumble following the draw against Getafe at the Coliseum. They are second three points behind Atletico De Madrid, but two points ahead of Barca who have a game in hand.
