All three played a big role and were definitely crucial in Barcelona’s success of coming back from 1-0 down to win the game at Getafe.
Gerard Deulofeu was sent in before the first half was over, after what could be a serious Ousmane Dembele injury. Denis Suarez and Paulinho were called in the second half, with each one doing his part in Barca’s 2-1 win.
We wanted to break through the lines, to go deeper. If not, we would have kept crashing into a wall. Deulofeu was daring in the one against ones, Denis was cool with his passes and his goal and Paulinho was successful with his power
Ernesto Valverde told reporters after the match, Barcelona’s fourth win in as many matches since the start of the new La Liga season.
Scoring is important for them [Suarez and Paulinho] as individuals, it gives them both confidence. It also shows that the squad has depth and that we have a lot of players who can contribute – and that includes players that aren’t here
the Barcelona coach said.
All three [that came on as subs] can get forward and they have goals in them. We had not rotated much from Tuesday against Juventus. Those who came on gave us freshness and end product
Valverde also said. As for Dembele, he preferred avoiding saying anything, waiting for the doctors to determine the seriousness of his injury.
