Barcelona are level with Getafe at the interval after failing to hold on to the lead at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona are being held to a 1-1 draw in La Liga at half time at the Camp Nou.

Following a largely uneventful opening to the contest, Barcelona managed to make the breakthrough on 24 minutes with their first real opening. Dani Alves charged down the right before rolling a low cross into the path of Lionel Messi, who arrowed the ball into the top corner.

The goal allowed the hosts to move up a gear, with Pedro driving into the Getafe area before attempting to find the bottom corner, though Julio Cesar managed to pull off a fine save to deny the winger.

Despite looking as though the hosts were going to add to their lead following the opener, Getafe hit back through Angel Lafita to level the contest on 37 minutes. The midfielder controlled a high ball inside the Barca box before striking home to make it 1-1.

Alexis Sanchez came close to regaining the Catalan club's lead before the interval, but he failed to make the most of his opportunity inside the box and struck an effort wide of the post.
