Talisman Getafe for Guardiola and Messi

Pep Guardiola has never lost and Leo Messi has always marked in el Coliseo with the coach.

In its technical journey to Barcelona , Pep Guardiola has faced 51 clubs across Europe. Everyone has made ​​at least one goal and one of them, large and amazing amount of 35 have never succeeded win. Getafe figure in this long list of victims . Since coach Guardiola took the helm of the League costumes in 2008-2009 has been measured at Madrid on six occasions, with a balance of a tie, the first year at the Camp Nou, and five consecutive wins.

Luis Garcia will be the third coach in Pep they see in el Coliseo Alfonso Pérez. The first was Víctor Muñoz, who took an equalizer in the Camp Nou, with Barca leader, and the second Michel, one of the worst when it has been crossed with Barca. Except for that slight accident of 2008 at home, Pep hegemony has extended for three long years, with previous episodes forget painful defeats unthinkable several league and cup is no longer cursed Getafe

Pep has also transformed Messi into a talisman against Getafe . The Argentinian star, who has three consecutive days scoring, has scored so soon in the last three visits Barca. The first time a goal itself, the typical diagonal and crossing the ball, earned the three points. It was enough although Barça had countless occasions. The goalkeeper Stojkovic and the referee Turienzo Álvarez was the problem. In the second took just 32 minutes. Leo had come just in time because of Brazil's international commitments and Pep left him on the bench. Jeffren entered and headed in the work begun by Ibra. The title was almost in the pocket. On the third occasion, the last season, Barca came to string 12 straight games without losing, nor failed to Getafe . Messi opened the scoring with a magnificent victory he devised and presented him with Xavi. The fourth goal against Getafe in nine games was in the stadium. (via MD)

Getafe-Barça: Last exit before el clásico

Barça has set itself the challenge to win the game nine points before going to Real Madrid on Saturday 10 December at the Santiago Bernabeu . This should improve their effectiveness at home tonight at Getafe in the last exit before el clásico, because then receives Rayo Vallecano (Tuesday) and Levante (Saturday) at the Camp Nou where it did is showing solid and solvent with the exception of injury against Sevilla (0-0). There will even be a third straight game at the Stadium Barca, the proceedings before the BATE Borisov in the Champions League, as an appetizer for the main event between the two candidates for the title.

Pep Guardiola publicly yesterday asked his players to "a great deal of awareness", aware that far from the Camp Nou, at least in the league, the team still has not recovered the punch of the previous three seasons. Still undefeated, but have won just two of its five movements and a high (0-1) in Gijón and Granada. The remaining three draws with the same result (2-2) in San Sebastian, Valencia and Bilbao. At this stage of the competition, and it seems clear that to overcome Real Madrid will have to do another "stupidity of points", to paraphrase coach Guardiola. And it will not be enough ties with spectacular they are.

With the prestigious Milan 2-3, Barca not only secured the pass to the knockout stage as group winners, but they injected moral and courage to overcome obstacles in the sprint to the Bernabeu. The Coliseum could return to the team Pique, who was not playing in a somewhat surprising at the San Siro and is more relaxed than their peers, like Alves, who, sanctioned, did not travel to Italy. Beyond the foregone ownership of both players, together to that of untouchable Valdés and Messi, it is difficult to risk an eleven keeping in mind that Guardiola will make rotations before el clásico and the Club World Cup so that the insole arrives to end at the exciting year end. The team will also depend on whether it maintains the 3-4-3 San Siro or return to 4-3-3.

Iniesta, as a precaution, and the injured Afellay are the only casualties. In the attack, for example, up to five players vying for two places in the band: Villa, Alexis, Cuenca and Adriano and Pedro already recovered, perhaps chosen to gather pace after competitive return in Milan. Something similar happens in the half with Xavi, Thiago, Busquets, Keita and Cesc.

Getafe in the danger zone (just a point above the relegation places), is bound to bite on a technical and Luis Garcia in front of Levante Guardiola was able to create difficulties. Media has low Pedro Leon, injured, like Ustari, Miguel Torres, Masilela and Gavilan. Also missing is the revelation, the Moroccan Abdel, and the pre-Olympic sanctioned Africa. (via MD)

Alves and Adriano return

FC Barcelona recovered two Brazilians in the game tonight trap against Getafe.

Good news for FC Barcelona. The team is going through a very sweet and results of games for tonight's clash recovered two players: Alves and Adriano. The first could not play at San Siro sanction and the second injury.
Alves, surely jump tonight at Coliseum Alfonso Perez grass to run on the right wing. And it will cool, in an optimal state. As a motorcycle. The Brazilian, as Leo Messi, is one that always wants to play. And being in the `fridge why punishment is something that does not get along ...

Alves has started every league except the first (Villarreal) that he missed a penalty that dragged on since last season. In fact, it has only stopped playing this game and the last Wednesday (both for reasons of force majeure). Neither was in L ^ Hospitalet (Cup) last day 9 of this. On that occasion did not participate because they are summoned to Brazil.

On the other hand, Alves knows no defeat against Getafe at home or on the road or from defending the shirt of FC Barcelona. Only once has fallen against the Madrid team and it was while playing for Sevilla (season 2007-08). Of the ten games he has played against the Azulones, 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat.

Also returning to the call compatriot Adriano, recovered from the small hamstring hamstring in his left leg suffered on the eve of Brazil, Egypt played in Doha on the last date FIFA. The versatile player was discharged yesterday and, therefore, will be available to Pep Guardiola, but out of an injury is unlikely to come out in the starting lineup. Thus, the left wing, the player who currently has tickets to jump the field is Maxwell. The Brazilian was a substitute on Wednesday in Milan and points to the title.

A Getafe Adriano has not been as good as Alves. In the 7 games he has played against the Coliseum box, add 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. Maxwell, meanwhile, does have a good statistic: 2 games, 2 wins.

Along with Alves and Adriano, the helmsman of Santpedor Getafe moved this morning (the charter party issued at 11 hours from El Prat) with 18 other players, among which the squad Isaac Cuenca, which again have prominence after the parentheses of last Wednesday, when he fell from the final call of 18 with his fellow subsidiary of Marc Bartra and Oier Olazabal.

The rest of the expedition is the same as she flew to Milan on Monday and on Wednesday, won a prestigious victory (2-3) that also allowed him to secure first place in the group. And that heavy artillery is today at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. (via SPORT)
