Getafe vs Barcelona match preview

Will Barcelona start the defence of their La Liga title with a victory at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez?

Somewhat unexpectedly, Xavi guided Barça to their first tile since 2019 last time round, a triumph very much built on defence.

The Blaugrana conceded just 20 times all season long in La Liga, nine of which came in May when the trophy had already been wrapped up.

Now, Barcelona seriously need to improve their performances in Europe, having crashed out in the Champions League group phase in each of the last two season.

To compound things, they were then beaten by Manchester United in the Europa League’s first knockout round, thereby conceding 18 times in eight European matches, despite letting in just 20 across 38 La Liga fixtures.

For the next season and a half, at least, Barça will also be playing home matches at Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc, the venue of the 1992 Olympic Games, while Camp Nou is refurbished, which will provide another challenge.

Getafe meantime looked dead and buried towards the end of last season, only for José Bordalás to return and save them, courtesy of wins over Celta Vigo, Real Betis and Osasuna in May.

So, this’ll be Azulones’ seventh successive season in La Liga, hoping Bordalás, who led them to a fifth place finish in 2019, can ensure this team isn’t in another relegation scrap come next May.

It won’t be easy, but Barça are firm favourites to leave the Coliseum with the win.
