Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 24
Kick-off:
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona)

Looking to stretch their La Liga winning streak to three games on the trot, the home side will be gunning for victory against tough customers Getafe. The Catalans will have to turn in a performance of the highest quality to have any chances of seeing off this resilient Getafe outfit.

Getafe have been one of the surprise packages in the Spanish La Liga this season, sitting third on the log having amassed 42 points from 23 games. Champions League qualification is looking more of a reality with every single game-week.

With a tough game against reigning champions Barcelona on the horizon, Jose Bordalas’ men will be gunning for maximum points to steer further away from fifth-placed Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona vs Getafe Team News

There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a difficult few weeks for the Catalan giants, who have lost Ousmane Dembele for the remainder of the season due to yet another hamstring problem.

Talk of unrest in the camp involving sporting director Eric Abidal and senior players has not helped Barca's current situation, but there is still plenty for the supporters to be positive about heading into the business end of the season.

Indeed, the gap to La Liga leaders Real Madrid is just three points having won their last two against Levante and Real Betis. Lionel Messi provided a hat-trick of assists in the 3-2 success over Betis, and it is vital that the Catalan giants stay in touch with their Clasico rivals at this stage of the campaign.

At the time of writing, the club have still not made an emergency signing to replace Dembele, but a number of names are thought to be in the frame.

The Champions League will resume later this month, meanwhile, and Barca will be determined to pick up a positive result from the first leg of their last-16 clash against Napoli on February 25.

Getafe, though, are sure to provide tough opposition for the champions this weekend. The Madrid club will head into the match off the back of four straight league wins over Leganes, Betis, Athletic Bilbao and Valencia, not conceding a single goal in the process.

Jose Bordalas 's side actually finished fifth in La Liga last season and qualified from their Europa League group to make the last-32 stage of the competition, where they will meet Ajax.

The capital outfit have impressed again in the league, meanwhile, and currently sit third in the table, three points clear of fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.

Getafe would actually move to within four points of second-placed Barca should they manage to pick up all three points this weekend, although they have not beaten the Catalan giants in the league since November 2011, which is an indication of the size of their task on Saturday afternoon.
