Team News: Barcelona
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Barcelona gaffer Xavi Hernández to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Keidi Bare (Ruptured ankle ligament) will miss out. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres.
Team News: Getafe
In an otherwise healthy group, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Getafe gaffer Quique Sánchez Flores to contend with. Mauro Arambarri (Ankle Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re inclined to think that Getafe must be fancied to score against this Barcelona lineup, however it probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Our selection here is for a 2-1 advantage for Barcelona by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily see this go either way.
