How Barcelona could line up against Getafe

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Getafe.

Barcelona will be looking for their third La Liga victory in succession when they welcome an in-form Getafe side to Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon.

The Spanish champions have beaten Levante and Real Betis in their last two league fixtures to stay within three points of league leaders Real Madrid in the table.

Quique Setien's side will be the favourites to put another three points on the board this weekend, but Getafe have won their last four in Spain's top flight to rise into third spot in the table.

Here, Sports Mole looks at the home side could line up at Camp Nou.


POSS BAR XI vs. GET

Out: Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), Luis Suarez (knee), Clement Lenglet (ban)
Doubtful: Neto (ankle), Nelson Semedo (illness), Samuel Umtiti (fatigue)

Barca will again be unable to call upon injured forwards Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez, while Clement Lenglet is unavailable due to the red card that he picked up in last weekend's 3-2 win over Real Betis.

Gerard Pique is back from a ban of his own, though, and will return to the starting XI. Samuel Umtiti should also feature despite missing training on Wednesday due to fatigue.

Nelson Semedo is a doubt due to illness, though, meaning that Sergi Roberto could drop to right-back, allowing Ansu Fati to join Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi in the final third of the field.

Jordi Alba should also return to the XI having been named on the bench last time out, but Setien has a tough decision to make when it comes to who partners Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong in midfield.

Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Arthur are all in contention, and the latter could be handed the chance to impress in the middle of the park against a vibrant Getafe side.
