The excitement returns to Camp Nou and does it with a duel of height. This Saturday, starting at 4:00 p.m., the ball will roll again in the stadium of a Barcelona Football Club that, with the premise of continuing to measure up as the current champion of the competition, aspires to recover the leadership that now holds its top rival, the Real Madrid Soccer Club. Three points behind the lead and with everything to do, taking into account that there are still many games, the cast led by Quique Setién does not want to fail again as he did in Mestalla and wants to repeat the performance starred last Sunday against Real Betis Football at Benito Villamarín , when they won with a 2-3 on the scoreboardand they returned to the path of victory after falling in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey. With confidence and ambition, the Blaugranas will receive an unbeatable Getafe Football Club that, with a triumphant commander as it is turning out to be José Bordalás, and located in the third position of the table, will try to assault the Barça fief and get three points that would allow aspiring to the unthinkable before and even to put his candidacy to a hypothetical first place. With the challenge of taking hold in Europe and everything at stake, Catalans and Madrid will carry out a more than incessant fight in one of the most anticipated duels of the day.

The Football Club Barcelona, ​​with attitude towards the title

The cast directed by Quique Setién does not want to fail before those of José Bordalás. With much at stake, the Catalans want to extend their stay on the path of victory after having changed the chip against Real Betis Balompié on day 23, when they won with a 2-3 on the scoreboard of Benito Villamarín. The goal is none other than to continue aspiring to the title and snatch the lead from its maximum rival, the Real Madrid Club de Fútbol, ​​which currently has fifteen wins, seven draws and one defeat and which has strengthened in recent days as firm aspirant to proclaim champion. The premise for the Catalans will be not to succumb to the Madrid team this Saturday, taking into account that any mistake would mean that whites put land in the fight.

With fifteen victories, four draws and four defeats, the current champion of the competition wants to start a good run to be able to fight with the confidence meter to the fullest for the two titles that remain in his hypothetical medal winners facing the end of the season. After falling in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey , expectations have been limited around giving a blow of authority in the maximum continental competition and giving another in national territory, continuing with the league hegemony that until now they have been able to maintain .

Despite having some casualties in his squad, between injured and sanctioned, Quique Setién wants to continue on the right track by adding another three points to his locker and wants to take advantage of his next games as a technical coach to catch shooting facing the duel that next 25 February will play against the Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli of Gennaro Gattuso in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. For this reason, he wants his players to continue carving in the face of the most difficult challenges and that the fall in the Copa del Rey does not involve the slightest gap.

The Getafe Football Club, launched and with Europe in mind

José Bordalás has already said it in an interview. The situation that the Madrid team is going through does not end up being completely credible because of all the good they are living. Holding the third position of the leaderboard of the highest category of Spanish football, the Getafe Club de Fútbol is licensed to dream and wants to do it in style . A victory at the Camp Nou would be a moral boost in order to continue strengthening European positions and Europe goes through the main expectations of the staff.

Twelve wins, six draws and five losses are the accumulated records that support the good run that the team led by José Bordalás has maintained so far. The ambition of this Getafe Club de Fútbol is the one that adds an incentive of intensity to a match in which it is expected that there will be an incessant fight for three more than important points for both casts.

About to become a centenary in the First Division, José Bordalás aspires to much more than he achieved and wants to leave the Getafe Club de Fútbol at the top. Proof of this is the number of victories he has already left behind against such good rivals as the Valencia Club de Fútbol or Athletic Club de Bilbao.

On the eve of retaking the Europa League, the Madrid team wants to take a blow of authority at the Camp Nou and put the difficult things on a current champion who will have to jump before his fans with lead feet .

The person in charge of issuing the final sentence

The referee Guillermo Cuadra Fernández, belonging to the Committee of Referees of the Balearic Islands and who has been international since the beginning of this 2020, will direct the duel on the grass of the Camp Nou. In addition, Alejandro Hernández Hernández, of the Las Palmas Referees Committee, will be in charge of the VAR .

The most recent background

In the face of this clash and taking into account the last eight games played between the two casts , it should be noted that the Catalans have a certain favoritism. Of those matches, the Football Club Barcelona has won in seven .

The coach of the Barcelona Football Club, Quique Setién , entered the press conference room of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on the morning of this Friday to appear before the media and assess the match that his team will play this Saturday against Getafe José Bordalás Football Club.

The Cantabrian coach was asked about the performance of Samuel Umtiti , who on Thursday returned to training after he was absent in Wednesday’s session due to some inconvenience and who aims to be a starter taking into account that Clément Lenglet has not been called for being sanctioned “He is going to give us a lot. He has done a lot of things well and we are delighted. Tomorrow, he will be perfectly,” he commented, dispelling doubts about his state of form and discarding, therefore, another drop in the template.

On the Getafe Club de Fútbol and its position in the table , the Santander coach valued his good run. “It is a team that has been proving that it does things well for a long time. It has a plan that develops very well. It is in Europe. It is a team that commits a lot and to which, now, everything comes out. It will be very complicated,” he said on the degree of difficulty of the game this Saturday, in which they must go with lead feet to avoid falling and that the Real Madrid Club de Fútbol continues to put land in between in the fight for leadership.

In addition, Quique Setién was asked about the possible signing that could reach the team if the Royal Spanish Football Federation accepts the request of the Barça entity after knowing the medical part of Ousmane Dembélé, which will be off the pitch for six months after being intervened. “I will work with what he touches. We will adapt to what he touches. Let’s see if they allow us. I suppose they will accept it,” commented the Santander, who continues to incorporate players from the subsidiary in their calls. This time, the center forward, recently signed to reinforce the team of Francisco Javier García Pimienta, King Manaj, has been chosen. On him and his level, Quique Setién has commented: “He can give us things and that is why we have included him in the call. We could do well during the game.”

Finally, Quique Setién was asked about the Real Madrid Club de Fútbol and its leadership . The Catalans will have to win against the Getafe Club de Fútbol to avoid a surprise and continue in the fight for the title and the Santander coach has made it clear that, in it, the favoritism is the same as they maintain with the whites. “We get three points but we have a direct duel in Madrid in which we have high hopes,” he said.

On the other hand, José Bordalás did the same thing at a press conference, where he considered the match against Barcelona Football Club as “very important” and very attractive due to the level of his rival, who will try to win by taking advantage of “the great moment of Getafe”. “We face a very large and powerful team. My players have shown that we have the capacity to play a good game. We know it will be difficult, but we face the game with great enthusiasm,” he said of the cast led by a Quique Setién with the one that has maintained the occasional encounter in previous seasons. “It is clear that I like football in general. I respect all the coaches very much. I like a lot of things from Quique Setién’s teams. I will not go into details because I am not to analyze the rival. I like a lot of things many great coaches. Every year, you ask me the same thing when I have to face the teams that Quique Setién trains. I respect him, I am a person who has no resentment and who values ​​any profession.

The calls

In order to maintain the line and avoid a surprise, the Santander coach has announced a call for guaranteeswhich, despite the casualties due to injury and discarded by penalty, is made up of eighteen players. Marc-André ter Stegen, Nélson Semedo, Gerard Piqué, Ivan Rakitić, Sergio Busquets, Arthur Melo, Leo Messi, Norberto Murara, who already has a medical discharge, Antoine Griezmann, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie de Jong, Arturo Vidal, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Ansu Fati, Ronald Araújo and the center forward who has recently signed the subsidiary of Francisco Javier García Pimienta, Rey Manaj, make up the list that the Cantabrian coach has provided to face the game on Saturday and which Clément Lenglet is left out due to the accumulation of yellow cards after he saw the red card in Benito Villamarín against Real Betis Balompié and Riqui Puig.
