Barcelona vs. Getafe takes place Saturday with La Liga fans eager for the domestic fixtures to get back underway following the international break. Getafe vs. Barcelona kicks off at 2 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Barcelona will look to reclaim the La Liga title this year from great rivals Real Madrid, and their fixture today promises to be anything but a walk over. They will be heading to Madrid to face the side which upset Real Madrid just three weeks ago. On that night Juan Valera had a fantastic game and was influential in the result.
The Catalans will remember last season also when Valera scored the winner against them as Getafe beat Pep Guardiola's men 1-0. They will need no extra motivation coming into today's fixture looking to set the record straight.
Things will be different for Barcelona this time though; Pep Guardiola - arguably the best manager in Barcelona's history - has left, and a new manager is at the helm looking to fill some big boots. He could struggle early on as he has a number of injuries to contend with, including to Andres Iniesta and Alexis Sanchez, who both picked up injuries on international duty.
Cesc Fabregas is a likely starter for Barcelona, and he could be influential in the outcome of the game.
It may be too early for David Villa, who has said he is fully recovered from his broken leg, but is still attempting to get back to match fitness before being thrown in at the deep end. It is unclear whether he will be a match starter, but even if he is not in the starting line up he is highly likely to feature at some point in the match.
Getafe: Moya, Valera, Abraham, Ruano, M Torres, Michel, X Torres, Leon, Barrada, Castro, Alvaro
Barcelona: Valdes, Montoya, Pique, Puyol, Adriano, Xavi, Busquets, Fabregas, Pedro, Messi, Tello
