Barcelona – Getafe
Barcelona faces Getafe at the Camp Nou in a match from the 18th round of La Liga. Let’s see what kind of a preview we can give you for this game.
Barcelona return in action after winning the Super Copa against Real Madrid in Saudi Arabia. Right now the Catalans are leaders in the league with three points ahead of Real Madrid. They will try to at least keep this advantage now.
Before the Super Copa, Barca celebrated a 1-0 win against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano. But the real joy came for the Super Copa when Barcelona won their first trophy under the management of Xavi. It was also Barcelona’s first trophy since the departure of Lionel Messi.
Robert Lewandowski will miss this game because of his suspension. The Polish striker is still in the red zone after being sent off against Osasuna before the World Cup break. Most likely Ansu Fati will replace Lewandowski at the top of the attack.
Barca’s young midfielder Gavi looks in a top shape right now. He scored a goal in the Super Copa final against Real Madrid and made two assists as well. It seems that he’s already turning into a star.
Getafe approach this visit to the Camp Nou from 15th place in the standings. The team is just one point ahead of the 18th Cadiz and the relegation zone. That’s worrying and requires an increased attention from the team.
In their last match Getafe suffered their 8th loss for the season. Quique Sanchez Flores’ team hosted Espanyol at the Coliseum, but conceded a 1-2 defeat. Enes Ünal scored for Getafe, but in the second half Los Pericos secured their win.
That’s the preview for the La Liga clash between Barcelona and Getafe at the Camp Nou. We wish you good luck with this one!
