The fight for la Liga is more alive than ever and, with Real Madrid within four points, the guys at Pep Guardiola will have the opportunity to get closer than ever to Mourinho's pupils if they can win at the Camp Nou against the visit of Getafe.
After being ten points, Barça could be at just one point of the set target pressure to be carried on in their grief at the Calderón against Atlético Madrid in a derby in which the red and whites struggle to re-enlist to Europe. A high voltaja Madrid derby that will become more sense once the azulgranas have managed to do their homework before one of his betes noires this season: Getafe.
The group led by Luis García was the first team that got beat Guardiola in this championship and this time, visit the FC Barcelona installed in the quiet area of classification and glancing posts with access to Europa League. However, Barça gets to clash with the inertia of the team that accumulates nine consecutive victories in the league.
Pep Guardiola warned that they must only look at its own navel and passed the examination only to defeat the dark blue set. However, the coach himself and emphasized the precarious situation in behind Barca and bind to 'reinvent' the only possible absence of Alves - who trained with his teammates but could rest almost certainly - and Pique. Montoya already played some minutes in Zaragoza come to the forefront with Mascherano and Puyol to complete the Barça defense.
The possible absence of the suspended Cesc will also be one of the setbacks that coexist with Barça against Getafe. After the break of Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets in Zaragoza, you may decide to return to give Pep entry into the starting lineup at the expense of Keita and Thiago.
In search of the goal is, as usual, Leo Messi who have the support of Alexis Sánchez at full fitness. The big question is the companion of the Argentine and Chilean with Pedro, Cuenca and Tello as major candidates. However, it seems that Isaac Cuenca part with some advantage over their peers to try to open the field as much as possible against an opponent that will be enclosed as it did back in the tie against Milan.
