Despite Lionel Messi’s departure, Barcelona was impressive in the opening two games, where they achieved a great 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad, while they had to settle for one point on a difficult away match against Athletic Bilbao, playing 1-1, so the Catalan giant will want to record a new triumph at his Camp Nou, this weekend.
On the other hand, Getafe’s schedule at the beginning of the season is not easy. Despite solid performances at the season’s opening, Michel’s team suffered minimal defeats from Valencia and Sevilla, both 1-0. Getafe is eager to record their first victory in the new campaign, but they will have to look for their victory elsewhere because they have a difficult visit to Camp Nou this weekend.
Last season, Getafe was one of the weakest away teams, where they won only three times out of 19 games. Still, it should also be borne in mind that Getafe found a net against Barcelona in each of the previous three meetings, so this fact gives Michel’s team confidence before the trip to Barcelona. Barcelona’s only problem remains the defensive line, where they have already conceded three goals from the opening two games. All in all, Barcelona’s victory should be taken into account, but their defence does not inspire confidence, so goals at both ends of the field are on the cards.
