BARCELONA VS GETAFE LIVE DETAILS LALIGA PREVIEW: PROBABLE LINEUPS, PREDICTION, TEAM NEWS
Barcelona will face Getafe on Sunday in an attempt to start the international break on a strong note.
FC Barcelona failed to capitalize on Real Madrid's win over Levante last weekend, drawing 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao. They will be hoping for a change of fortune when they host Getafe at Camp Nou on Sunday.
Barcelona won 4-2 against Real Sociedad in their last home match. As the club tries to live without Lionel Messi's services this season, Ronald Koeman should be hoping for similar results.
Fortunately for them, it appears like there is still a lot of business to be done, with Bernardo Silva surfacing as a possibility as the transfer season draws to a close. Koeman, on the other hand, will be focused on the forthcoming game against Getafe, which might be difficult given that they lost 1-0 to the same opponent last season in an away match.
Barca, on the other hand, was in command the last time these two teams played, winning a convincing 5-2 victory at Camp Nou in April. Not to mention, Getafe has lost back-to-back games to Valencia and Sevilla to start the season.
Los Azules will face Elche and Rayo Vallecano following the international break, so a game against Barcelona should be the end of a difficult schedule. Nonetheless, Michel's side will be eager to take at least a point from this match, knowing that it will go a long way toward boosting morale ahead of the international break.
We'll take a deeper look at these two sides at The Hard Tackle before of their match at Nou Camp this weekend.
Tactics & News from the Team
Barcelona will be without a number of players against Getafe. While the impending international break should allow several of their players to rest, they will be without them this weekend, with Ansu Fati, Sergio Aguero, Ousmane Dembele, and Gerard Pique among those on the list.
