Barcelona’s hot form has waned a bit as they were held to a draw for the second game in succession and the hosts even failed to register a shot on target in the first half against Getafe during the weekend.

Barca playmaker Andreas Iniesta thinks the Catalan giants suffered from a lack of speed and continuity in a 0-0 draw against Getafe.

“It’s not that anything was missing from our game,” Iniesta said, according to Mundo Deportivo.

“What cost us the win was a lack of speed, continuity and creating chances.

“But, also, because the team came up against a very difficult opponent that gave no opportunity for continuity.

“It was a game at home that was always going to be complicated.

“In the end, it was almost impossible to come out with three points, even though we have tried until the end.”

Up next for the Catalan giants is a trip to Eibar before taking on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Iniesta admitted that games in January and February are usually tough.

“Normally the months of January and February are like this,” Iniesta added.

“We are lucky to be in all competitions and it can be tiring.

“You hope that games like this don’t happen where you drop two points, but sometimes it happens and you have to get on with it, there is no other choice.

“We’ll analyse the game and now use these days to rest and return to compete on the weekend.”
