Valverde: Barcelona need to be careful with Dembélé

Barcelona may be nine points clear at the top of La Liga, in the Copa del Rey final and the last-16 of the Champions League but Ernesto Valverde says talk of a treble is premature. However, despite impressive runs across all the competition, the prospect of winning treble isn't something which has entered Valverde's mind yet. If anything they're more of a juggernaut than usual, with Philippe Coutinho joining the attack and Ousmane Dembele returning to health. When you have got none, you can get one.

Barcelona are held, at the Camp Nou, by Getafe in a goalless encounter.

It was Barcelona's 12th game in 39 days since the winter break and Valverde admitted tiredness might have been a factor. However, while Getafe have played better in their last six games, they have been very bad away from home.

"I have spoken about this game before it is a hard one, the game against them early this season was the first game we were behind", he added. Iniesta and Messi have played together for many years, and Coutinho needs time to adapt to the way Barca play, which is probably why he was signed in January with La Liga all but sewn up.

"There's a lot of points to go and we have to be positive", said Amor.

However, they advised doctors to carefully monitor their patients for depression and seek proper treatment if necessary. In one study, researchers found that nearly 20 percent of those with psoriasis suffer from some form of depression.

The Blaugrana boss admitted that players should be mentally prepared for a tough fight from visitors.

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

Messi won a free-kick and sent the shot spiralling over - the fear for Getafe was that Bruno Gonzalez catching him in the face with a stray boot while he was on the floor might have made the great man angry. It's all about the mathematical sequence, so fans need to calm down a bit.

The Spain midfielder ultimately came on as a substitute in the second half against Getafe and he could not inspire Barca to victory either as Getafe produced an impressive defensive display to deny the home side, something they nearly managed in the return fixture which they narrowly lost 2-1 after leading 1-0.
