After a 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao last week, Barcelona are back in action in the league and this is another difficulty in a brutal opening schedule because the Blaugrana take on Getafe at Camp Nou, once again with fans allowed at the world’s largest stadium.
The full week of rest and training gave Ronald Koeman three big fitness boosts as Marc-André ter Stegen, Óscar Mingueza and Philippe Coutinho all come back from injury for this one. Depth is important in a long season, and having as many talented players as possible is crucial without Lionel Messi.
This is the last game before the first international break of the season, and starting the next two weeks with 7 points from the first three would be a big deal as Barca try to start a new era with performances and results. positive. The record for the first two games against the two Basque giants is positive, and Getafe will provide another difficult test.
However, it won’t be the same gritty and at times brutal Getafe team. José Bordalás is absent as manager and in his place comes Míchel who seems to have a more offensive approach to what we have seen in his first two games in charge, although the defensive intensity is still there.
Getafe are in transition and have lost their first two games, but it was tough 1-0 defeats against Valencia and Sevilla, which isn’t at all embarrassing. They will be tough, intense and organized at Camp Nou, and Barca have to be at their best.
Barcelona (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; Roberto, Busquets, De Jong; Griezmann, Memphis, Braithwaite
Getafe (4-4-2): Soria; Suárez, Djené, Mitrovic, Olivera; Aleña, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Jankto; Sandro, Final
My head says never trust Barca against Getafe, my heart is Blaugrana: 2-0 to the good guys.
