How Barcelona could line up against Getafe

Sports Mole takes a look at how Barcelona could line up in Sunday's La Liga clash with Getafe.

Barcelona will resume La Liga action after the winter break with a trip to Getafe on Sunday night.

The Spanish champions are currently three points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, while they have a seven-point lead over bitter rivals Real Madrid, who failed to beat Villarreal on Thursday night.

Barcelona will fancy their chances of recording their 12th league win of the season this weekend, but Getafe have only lost four top-flight games this term, with a total of 25 points leaving them in an impressive seventh.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Ernesto Valverde's side could line up in the Spanish capital this weekend.


POSS BAR XI vs. GET

Out: Rafinha (knee), Sergi Samper (calf), Samuel Umtiti (knee), Thomas Vermaelen (muscle)
Doubtful: Malcom (ankle)

Barcelona have not played since December 22, when goals from Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi secured a 2-0 home win over Celta Vigo.

Arthur and Philippe Coutinho again had to settle for spots on the bench in that match, with Arturo Vidal and Dembele given starting positions.

Arthur will be hoping to return to the XI this weekend, but it seems likely that Coutinho will start on the bench once again due to the form of Dembele alongside Messi and Luis Suarez in the final third of the field.

Clement Lenglet should keep his spot at centre-back as Samuel Umtiti is still out, while Nelson Semedo is expected to start ahead of Sergi Roberto at right-back despite the Spaniard returning to training following a hamstring problem.
