Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for today is the FC Barcelona vs Getafe Match Preview. Koemann’s men are going to host Getafe at the Camp Nou to play their next La Liga fixture. FC Barcelona is on amazing form right now. The boys are performing very well, and they need to win consistently if they want to lift the La Liga trophy.
The 2-1 win against Villarreal was not one of the best performances of the team, but winning all three points from that game surely provided the team with all the momentum they needed to stay focused on the upcoming fixtures.
Facing Granada is not going to be the easiest of tasks, but the boys must remember that a win in this game is going to take them closer to the La Liga trophy.
FC BARCELONA VS GRANADA MATCH PREVIEW
Both teams, FC Barcelona and Granada last met during their fixture in Copa Del Rey. FC Barcelona showed one of the best performances of the season in that game as the team made a comeback in order to win against Granada and qualify for the next round. Koemann’s men must replicate the same kind of performance in this game as well.
Even though FC Barcelona is the favorite team to win the game, it won’t be as easy as said. The team must stay focused, and should not be overconfident. Barca is currently at 3rd on the points table whereas Granada is 9th on the points table. However, Koemann’s team and Granada are in completely different forms right now.
FC Barcelona is currently one the best-performing sides in La Liga. On the other hand, Granada is struggling. They are not in their best form and have inconsistent results as well. However, this does not mean that Granada is going to go easy on Koemann’s team. They are going to make sure that FC Barcelona suffers at their home, and that their chances of winning the title are ruined. Therefore, FC Barcelona must bring their A-game forward today in order to get past Granada.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FC BARCELONA?
Considering the performance and results this Barca team is having right now, it is a big doubt that Ronald Koemann is going to make any big changes to the starting lineup. The current lineup is delivering all kinds of results Koemann wants from his team. Despite the issue of not having a proper number 9, and lack of finishers, FC Barcelona has been scoring well in their previous few games.
Therefore, there are very less chances that Koemann interferes with his normal starting lineup. Barca is likely to play this game like they normally do. The home advantage is going to help the boys maintain possession easily, and they can easily dominate the opposition. Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann are in fine form as well. This means that there could be trouble for the opposition defenders. Furthermore, FC Barcelona’s midfield is perhaps one of the best playing midfield units in La Liga this season. Therefore, they are going to go all out on Granada.
All in all, the boys must focus on extracting all three points from this game. Even if they do not play really good football, they still need to make sure that they end the game with all three points in the bag. This is what matters the most at this stage of the season.
