Barca struggled to get out of the blocks and the home side nearly took the lead when Gaku Shibasaki's cross to the far post was almost deflected into his own net by centre-back Gerard Pique.

Barcelona face an anxious wait to discover the severity of the injury that forced Ousmane Dembele to hobble out of Saturday's 2-1 victory over Getafe.

Dembele, Barcelona's record signing, had started against Juventus in the club's 3-0 Champions League win on Tuesday.

The Japanese midfielder left-footed shot full on the volley gave no chance for Marc-Andre ter Stegen in goal for Barcelona.

Getafe had a wonderful chance to take the lead in the 17th minute when a deflected Shibasaki cross fell for Molina at the far post, but the striker turned just the wrong side of the post as Barcelona survived another unsafe moment.

The away side's first shot on target saw Deulofeu bring a save from Vicente Guaita in the 29th minute, before the Getafe goalkeeper kept out a close-range Samuel Umtiti header three minutes later.

Japanese worldwide Shibasaki took matters into his own hands as he opened the scoring for Getafe with a spectacular volley from the edge of the box in the 39th minute, 1-0.

Barca would equalise through Denis Suarez before Paulinho, a second half replacement for Ivan Rakitic, scored with his first attempt of the game.

Halftime substitute Denis Suarez curled in the equaliser from inside the box after being set-up by Sergi Roberto in the 62nd minute, 1-1.

Barcelona remain top of the league with 12 points after four games.

However, it wasn't all good news for the Catalans as Ousmane Dembele injured his hamstring after sprinting for the ball just after the 20 minute mark.
