Barcelona faces a stern test as they take on Getafe on road after enjoying two weeks of break.
Barcelona currently sitting at the top of table cruised to comfortable 2-0 victory over Celta Vigo in their last league Fixture. Valverde’s men have won four consecutive league matches and managed to keep a clean sheet in all of them. Messi inspired team is expected to show their strong form in 2019.
Getafe’s last fixture ended in a stalemate against Girona with the scoreline of 1-1. Getafe is unbeaten in their last four league fixtures are expected to employ their consistent players. The rigid old-school defense of the hosts will be put up to a test against the highest scoring team in the league.
Soria (GK); D Suarez, Dakonam, Cabrera, Antunes; Mata, Maksimovic, Arambarri, Foulquier; Angel, Molina.
Ter Stegen (GK); Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur; Dembele, L Suarez, Messi.
My Prediction XI:
Ter Stegrn (GK); Alba, Dakonam, Pique, Cabrera; Maksimovic, Rakitic, Arambarri; Dembele, L Suarez (Vc), Messi (C).
The Valverde have some impressive stats against Getafe and current Barcelona squads form makes this easier tie for them.
Getafe will have to fight relentlessly to gain anything from this tie for whole 90 minutes.
