Barca v Getafe

Barca v Getafe
Barcelona will be without Javier Mascherano, who is suspended.

Thomas Vermaelen is expected to make the step in for a rare start, but Luis Enrique could also opt for Jeremy Mathieu.

Sergio Busquets could be rested but Neymar will return.

As recently as 1984, one year after Getafe were re founded, they were in Spain's seventh tier, but four consecutive promotions saw them rise to the third tier in 1987.

They spent 17 years yo-yoing between the third and second tier before winning promotion to La Liga in 2004.

This is now Getafe's twelfth consecutive season in La Liga.

Since then Barcelona have only lost to Getafe twice, the first time was a 2-0 defeat at Getafe in 2007 and the second time, also at Getafe was 1-0 in 2011.

At Camp Nou, Barca have won 8, drawn 3, scored 29 times and conceded 7.

With Barcelona having won their last 11 matches and Getafe having lost 14 of their last 17 away matches, there really does look like only one outcome.
