Sub­sti­tute Paulinho scored a late win­ner as Barcelona came from be­hind to beat Getafe 2-1 and con­tinue their per­fect start to the new LaLiga sea­son.

The visi­tors lost Ous­mane Dem­bele to in­jury in the open­ing pe­riod of his full Liga de­but and their Satur­day af­ter­noon got worse when Ja­pan in­ter­na­tional Gaku Shibasaki scored his first Getafe goal in stun­ning fashion be­fore the break.

But an­other of Valverde’s subs, De­nis Suarez, scored his first goal since Jan­uary as the visi­tors bat­tled back in the se­cond half, be­fore Paulinho grabbed the win­ner just as it looked like they would have to set­tle for a draw.
