FC BARCELONA VS GETAFE MATCH PREVIEW
FC Barcelona won the final of the Copa Del Rey against Athletic Bilbao with a convincing 4-0 score line. However, things are pretty different in La Liga. The loss against Real Madrid has affected the progress of Cules a lot in chasing the La Liga trophy. However, the good thing for the Blaugranas is that Real Madrid drew against Getafe as well which means FC Barcelona has one more chance to gain an advantage over their arch-rivals.
The victory against Athletic Bilbao not only provided the first trophy of the season to the club, but it must also be a huge confidence booster for the team. The boys should carry this momentum and confidence into the upcoming fixture against Getafe so that they can win all 3 points from the game. Getafe is currently 15th on the table, but they are not going to easy to play against. Getafe won 1-0 against FC Barcelona when both teams met the last time. Therefore, Ronald Koemann must ensure that he is on point with his tactical planning. The squad selection is also going to matter a lot. In a nutshell, FC Barcelona needs to win the game if they have any chance to win the La Liga trophy.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FC BARCELONA?
Ronald Koemann is going to go all out on this fixture and the upcoming fixtures as well because only 8 fixtures are remaining in the La Liga competition. FC Barcelona needs to bring their A-game forward against Getafe as well as all other teams that they face ahead. FC Barcelona is lucky that they do not have any major injuries at the moment. This means that Koemann can head into the upcoming games with a strong starting eleven as well as a strong bench.
However, Koemann must keep all areas strong from the defense to the attack. The team must replicate the way they played against Athletic Bilbao, and if they do they are going to win the game easily. The team is going to depend on the midfield as well as their attacking lineup. However, the biggest winning factor for the Blaugranas is going to be the mentality. The players must approach this game with a hunger to win and they definitely will.
Let’s see what happens.
