Barcelona were able to preserve their perfect run in the La Liga on Saturday but it came at a huge cost.

Their record signing, Ousmane Dembélé has picked up a muscle injury during their 2-1 away win against Getafe.

The Frenchman was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu in the 29th minute and a medical bulletin will be released by Barcelona in the coming hours.

Dembélé has only three appearances with Barcelona so far this season.

It was Brazil international Paulinho that came off the bench to score a late winner as Barcelona came from behind to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez stadium on Saturday.

Gaku Shibasaki's wonder strike just before half-time gave Getafe a shock lead but Denis Suárez brought the visitors back on level after blasting the ball into the roof of Guaita's net thanks to Sergi Roberto assist.

New summer signing, Paulinho struck late with a well taken shot into the far post to deny the home side a point after a keenly contested encounter.
