Barcelona will face Getafe at Camp Nou Stadium, in Barcelona, in the 37th Round of Spanish La Liga. Barcelona against Getafe is always the match with big interest especially during this season and LaLiga positions. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Barcelona already confirmed as Champions of La Liga. They had a great season in Spain and still can make double by winning against Valencia in Copa del Rey Final. But a fairy tale, even after a 3:0 win at Camp Nou against Liverpool, ended at Anfield Stadium when Liverpool scored 4 goals and made one of the most beautiful comebacks in Champions League history. That is the second year for Barcelona when after a great win at home ground, they lost away with an incredible result. Last year AS Roma made that miracle and knocked out Barca in Quarter-final of the League.
Now Barcelona has 2 lost matches in a row and will give all the strength to win Copa del Rey. Valverde chose bad tactics by playing defensive football against evil and very motivated Liverpool. Even without a few main players, the team from Liverpool was able to beat the team with a handicap of 3 goals. In La Liga, head coach of Barca will give opportunities to reserve and young players to play with the great season having Getafe.
Getafe can reach the record by standing at 4th place in La Liga in the past 20 years. If they will finish at 4th place, they will play in the Champions League for the very first time. There are still 2 matches ahead and two very dangerous and strong opponents. Barcelona, hopefully with young and reserve players will face Getafe already this weekend. To win in this game for Getafe is very important since they have only 3 points difference with Valencia and Sevilla. Unfortunately, they lost a chance to make a bigger handicap with chasers after losing to Real Sociedad. In general, Getafe has a very strong character, can play strongly against even strongest opponents. Moreover, they have a great opportunity to be promoted to the highest rated Tournament in Europe.
Unfortunately, Amath Ndiaye and Vitorino Antunes will miss the next game due to injuries. Moreover, Djene, Bruno Gonzalez and Jaime Mata will miss the match in Barcelona due to cards suspension. Even playing against Barcelona, Getafe has a big chance to succeed.
These teams already played each other this season at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, in Getafe. Hosts played as good as it is possible and scored a goal, however, match finished with 2:1 result with Barca win.
