FC Barcelona suffered the first official defeat under trainer Ronald Koeman on Saturday evening. Due to a penalty kick caused by Frenkie de Jong, the Catalans lost 1-0 in the La Liga duel with Getafe. Earlier in the day, Real Madrid blamed itself against PhD candidate Cádiz: 0-1.

Jaime Mata scored the only goal for Getafe against Barcelona eleven minutes after the break from a penalty kick. The ball went on the spot because of a foul by De Jong on Damián Suárez.

In the first half, Lionel Messi had hit the bar on behalf of Koeman’s team and in injury time, the Argentinian missed another chance at the equalizer. Cucho almost brought the Getafe to 2-0 five minutes before the end, but his shot ended up on the crossbar.

De Jong played with the visitors until ten minutes before the end, for which Sergiño Dest made his basic debut. The former Ajax player completed the ninety minutes as a left back.

Barcelona had won the first two league matches of the season under Koeman, followed by a draw against Sevilla two weeks ago (1-1). The team is ninth with seven points from four games. Getafe climbs to second place through the victory.

Real fell behind Cádiz after fifteen minutes. Anthony Lozano passed Thibaut Courtois after Álvaro Negredo had prepared a cross with the head. Karim Benzema was in the final phase with a bet on the post the closest to a goal for ‘De Koninklijke’.

Despite the defeat, Real is in the lead in La Liga with ten points from five matches. Cádiz is in third place with the same number of points, but has played one more match.

Earlier in the day, Luis Suárez helped Atlético Madrid with a goal to a 0-2 victory on a visit to Celta de Vigo. The Uruguayan scored after six minutes on a pass from Manuel Sánchez with a shot in the right corner.

For Suárez, who came over from FC Barcelona this summer, it meant his third goal in the service of Atlético. The attacker made a dream debut at the beginning of this month with two goals against Granada (6-1). Deep in injury time, Yannick Carrasco secured the three points for Atlético, which is sixth with eight points from four games.
