Barcelona player ratings vs Getafe: Robert Lewandowski misfires AGAIN as goal-shy Blaugrana stumble towards La Liga title

Robert Lewandowski Barcelona 2022-23
Xavi's side had to settle for a 0-0 draw against 15th-placed Getafe, meaning they have not scored in any of their last three games in all competitions

Robert Lewandowski was anonymous as Barcelona were held scoreless by relegation-threatened Getafe, as they continued their stumble towards the Liga title with a second successive 0-0 draw.

The Blaugrana rattled the post twice in quick succession midway through the first half, with Raphinha and Alejandro Balde both denied by the woodwork.

Chances were at a premium for the rest of the contest, though. Gavi fired wide, Raphinha had a shot tipped around the post, and while Getafe occasionally threatened, the hosts never carved out a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski, Barcelona's big summer signing, was kept quiet as he struggled to assert himself on the kind of contest he was bought to help the club win.

GOAL rates Barcelona's players from Coliseum Alfonso Perez...

    Goalkeeper & Defence

    Marc-Andre ter Stegen (6/10):

    Didn't really have a save to make.

    Sergi Roberto (3/10):

    Removed with a leg injury inside 20 minutes.

    Ronald Araujo (7/10):

    Probably Barca's best player on the day. Absolutely imperious.

    Jules Kounde (5/10):

    Bit nervy at centre-back, far better at right-back. His long-term position can perhaps be called into question.

    Jordi Alba (5/10):

    Looked exhausted after an hour. Can't really be entrusted to start these days.

    Franck Kessie (6/10):

    Glimpses of quality, but didn't offer the creative spark his side needed on the day.

    Sergio Busquets (5/10):

    Kept the ball moving, but his lack of pace can be immensely frustrating when Barca have to play fast.

    Gavi (6/10):

    Won a lot of tackles, kicked a lot of people, and sprinkled in some moments of individual quality. Now leads La Liga with 62 fouls committed.

  3. Attack

    Raphinha (6/10):

    The Blaugrana's most consistent attacking threat, although he can be a bit predictable sometimes. Saw a curled shot tipped around the post late.

    Robert Lewandowski (4/10):

    Lifeless, maybe injured.

    Alejandro Balde (5/10):

    Handed an unlikely start at left-wing, looked far more comfortable when moved to left-back.

    Subs & Manager

    Eric Garcia (4/10):

    Introduced for the injured Roberto. Started at right-back then moved to a more central role. Didn't have much to do next to Araujo.

    Ansu Fati (4/10):

    Appeared to have nailed down a spot in the side, but saw Balde start on the left ahead of him. Went on a nice run or two, but is lacking confidence in the final third.

    Ferran Torres (4/10):

    Doesn't really offer much to this side.

    Pablo Torre (N/A):

    A last-minute introduction.

    Xavi (3/10):

    Fiddled with his line up a bit, reverting back to a 4-3-3 and putting Balde at left-wing. Didn't quite work in the first half — although the Blaugrana did hit the post twice. They struggled to create in the second, and had no answers for Getafe's organised unit. They will still win the league, but this was yet another poor showing.
