Getafe’s Gaku Shibasaki scored a stunning volley in La Liga clash against Barcelona

Gaku Shibasaki opened the scoring for his side Getafe in the La Liga battle against Barcelona on Saturday.

After Barca failed to properly clear a Getafe free-kick, Shibasaki launched a left-foot volley over Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and into the top corner.

However, the Japanese striker had to be withdrawn with a leg injury in the opening to the second half.

Denis Suarez equalized for the visitors, who claimed all the points thanks to an 84th-minute goal from Paulinho.

Getafe remain on four points and have now gone 10 LaLiga matches without a home win, despite a brave performance.
