Gerard Moreno's 13th goal of the season rescued a point for Espanyol as they drew 2-2 with Celta Vigo. "Getafe are always an uncomfortable side to play against and they don't leave you that space to find that continuity".
The result means that Barca are now seven points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga, and 17 points ahead of Real Madrid.
But despite the contest being very much a damp squib, Valverde found positives in his patched-together central defence, which housed full debutant Yerry Mina and natural left-back Lucas Digne. Pepe Bordalás' team were promoted this season but have been one of the best defensive teams this season.
The Colombian was just as active in the opposition penalty area as he was in Barca's own as he missed two headed chances and had a further shot blocked.
The La Liga match between Barcelona and Getafe will be broadcast live on beIN Sports.
Speaking ahead is Sunday's clash with Getafe, Valverde said: "People can have a lot of hopes for many things, it is good that they do, we like that, but we're professionals".
'This league is never easy, we'll have to work hard, ' Valverde added at his post-match press conference. "We need to touch wood but we are hoping for no more setbacks".
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi was off the pace during the La Liga leaders' 0-0 draw with Getafe. They're fairly safe from the relegation battle currently, sitting eleven points above the last relegation spot in the table.
"It is true that he has a problem and we took a risk on him the other day because it was a decisive game", said Valverde. The France forward floated a right-footed shot over onrushing goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez for his third goal in four matches and 12th in all competitions this season.
