La Liga leaders Barcelona can go six points clear at the top of the Spanish La Liga points table when they take on Getafe at home. Having already won their first trophy of the season – SuperCopa de Espana – by defeating arch rivals Real Madrid, the confidence in the Barcelona camp is high. Xavi has done a wonderful job stabilising the club and after a tumultuous campaign in the Champions League, things are looking bright for the club. The La Liga race will be a challenging one form them given the dominance Madrid has enjoyed for the past few seasons but the squad certainly has the depth to fight for it. Opponents Getafe are 16th in the points table and head into the game on the back of successive defeats. Another loss will see them deflated and leave them inching towards the drop zone.

Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres are suspended for the tie as they serve their suspension. Ansu Fati will play as the central striker for FC Barcelona with Ousmane Dembele and Raphinha on the wings. Frenkie de Jong gets his opportunity to play in the midfield and he will likely occupy the defensive role allowing Gavi and Pedri to venture forward. Jules Kounde and Andreas Christensen form the central defensive partnership.
Getafe will go with five at the back and Angel Algobia is also set to drop deep to make the backline compact. Enes Unal and Borja Mayoral will play as the two attackers in the final third and will depend on Portu and Juan Iglesias for crosses although with less possession, the attack is likely to be starved of clear-cut goal scoring opportunities.
