Paulinho scores late in Barcelona win

Barcelona's record 105 million-euro signing Ousmane Dembele who is set to be sidelined for up to four months after a hamstring injury has made just three appearances for Barca since sealing his move from Borussia Dortmund last month

The Brazil worldwide netted his first Barca goal with six minutes remaining as Ernesto Valverde's men recovered from a awful first half to claim a fourth straight top-flight victory in 2017-18.

Getafe had taken the lead in the first half through Gaku Shibasaki's stunning volley high into the roof of the net.

Barcelona ideal start in the La Liga continued after a hard fought 2-1 victory over Getafe on a day the Spanish giant nearly failed to come to the party.

The result keeps Ernesto Valverde's side top of the table, having won all four of their games so far this season.

Getafe were inches away from moving in front when a neat passing move ended with Shibasaki's cross from the left being put into the side netting by a stretching Molina only a yard out, with a vital deflection from Pique as the pass was making its way to the striker doing just enough to put him off.

Signed for an initial €105 million ($156.6 million), ex-Borussia Dortmund winger Dembele had made his first Barca start against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday (AEST), having come on as a substitute at home to Espanyol last week, his first game in the club's colours.

Dembele made his first start for Barca and Sergi Roberto replaced Nelson Semedo at right-back, in an otherwise-unchanged XI.

Barcelona completed the comeback vs. Getafe and remain ideal in La Liga courtesy of new-signing Paulinho's strike late on.

Paulinho came on as a second-half substitute and powered his way into the box before netting from a tight angle.

Messi had a free-kick brilliantly saved by Guaita and Getafe could have gained at least a point when Mauro Arambarri's deflected shot struck the foot of the post.

"I'm very happy to have scored the winning goal, it was very special", Paulinho said.
