MADRID - Barcelona crashed to a shocking 1-0 defeat at Getafe on Saturday and now trails Real Madrid, which came from a goal down to beat nine-man derby rival Atletico Madrid 4-1, by six points.

It was the first defeat of the season for the reigning Spanish and European champion as Getafe frustrated its illustrious visitor, grabbing the three points thanks to a second half header from Juan Valera.

In a scrappy game, Nikolas Miku shot over for Getafe after 20 minutes and Alexis Sanchez, a surprise inclusion in the Barca starting eleven, was denied by a fine reflex save from keeper Miguel Moya before halftime.
