Getafe CF vs FC Barcelona

La Liga, Spain

Getafe will be looking to move into the top half of the table when they make a visit to Cam Nou to face leaders Barcelona. With 29 points from 22 games, Getafe are placed on the 11th spot behind Real Betis. A win will see them jump four places to replace Eibar at the 7th spot. FC Barcelona have maintained a perfect record so far and getting past them would be something next to impossible for Getafe as well.

FC Barcelona:

Ter Steven; Alba, Semedo, Yerri Mina; Coutinho, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Rakitic; Paulinho, Messi, Suarez

Key Players:

Getafe CF: Molina and Fajr

FC Barcelona: Messi, Suarez, and Coutinho

Expected Winner:

After escaping through a late equaliser in their last game, FC Barcelona will be under some pressure to get back on track. However, the list of absentees in the defence will give Getafe a hope that could very well turn out to be true. Despite the defensive worries, the attack remains as strong as it always is with Lionel Messi at the helm of it which gives Barcelona the upper hand. So, the final prediction from our side goes out to be 2-1 win for Barcelona.
