Spanish football returns to the fold with its penultimate La Liga game of the season this weekend as Xavi’s Barcelona take on a struggling Getafe side at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Saturday.
Getafe vs Barcelona Preview
Getafe currently sit 15th in the La Liga table and haven’t been at their best so far this season. The Madrid-based team played out a 1-1 draw against Osasuna last week and will need to step up a notch in this game.
Barcelona, on the other hand, currently sit second in the table and have shown huge improvement under Xavi. The Catalan giants beat Celta Vigo by a comfortable 3-1 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
