Barcelona lock horns with Getafe in this high-octane Spanish Liga game. While Barcelona are in the 4th position of the table with 65 points, Getafe are in the 15th position of the table with 31 points. Barcelona will be a tough nut to crack for Getafe as they recently won the Copa Del Rey. The match is slated to begin at 1:30 AM (IST).
Barcelona have been a juggernaut in the 2021 edition across all formats. They had an unbeaten run except the El Clasico defeat they had faced at the hands of Real Madrid. They steamrolled past Athletic Bilbao in the Copa Del Rey cup final 4-0 and won the marquee event. Lionel Messi had scored 2 goals each and Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann scored 1 goal each to win it for the Catalan giants.
Getafe had a poor record this season. They have lost 14 games in the Lal Liga so far. However, they are coming on the back of a hard-fought draw with Real Madrid and that would inspire some motivation within them. They are winless in their last 6 games and this should be a huge concern for them. Jose Bordalas’s men have notched up only 3 wins in 2021, which is a clear indication that they would have to punch above their weight in this game to secure a win.
Ansu Fati will be missing out on this game due to a knee injury. Martin Brathwaite and Philippe Coutinho will also be missing out on the game due to injuries.
Dario Poveda, Cucho and Erick Cabaco will be missing out on this game due to injuries.
