2′ Busquets spins away from Maksimovic before trying to get Griezmann in behind with an early throughball down the left. He gets ahead of Iglesias, but Soria is alert and quickly out of his box to sweep it clear.

1′ Angel gets the game underway for Getafe!

The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.

Barcelona lost 0-1 against Getafe in the reverse fixture this season – they’ve never lost both league games against them in a single campaign.

Jose Bordalas makes six changes to his team after their draw with Real Madrid last time out, with only Soria, Dakonam, Maksimovic, Alena and Cucurella retaining their places. Top scorer Mata starts on the bench.

Just the one change for Ronald Koeman’s side from the Copa del Rey final on Saturday as Roberto is brought into the starting line-up for Dest, who drops to the bench.

GETAFE SUBS: Josete Miranda, Dario Poveda, Francisco Portillo, Xabier Etxeita, Koffi, Enes Unal, Mauro Arambarri, Mamor Niang, Jaime Mata, Ruben Yanez, Sabit Abdulai, David Timor.

GETAFE STARTING XI (4-4-2): David Soria; Juan Iglesias, Djene Dakonam, Sofian Chakla, Chema Rodriguez; Damian Suarez, Nemanja Maksimovic, Carles Alena, Marc Cucurella; Takefusa Kubo, Angel Rodriguez.

BARCELONA SUBS: Samuel Umtiti, Ronald Araujo, Ilaix Moriba, Matheus Fernandes, Miralem Pjanic, Trincao, Inaki Pena, Riqui Puig, Arnau Tenas, Konrad De la Fuente, Sergino Dest, Junior Firpo.

BARCELONA STARTING XI (4-3-3): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Oscar Mingueza, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong; Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Pedri.

Barcelona have been constantly in the news this week after the announcement of the European Super League, and have expressed their continued support for it earlier today. In their first game since that, they have a chance to leapfrog Sevilla back into third with a win, coming into today on the back of winning the Copa del Rey and have lost just one of their last 11 in all competitions, though that came in their last league game. They face a struggling Getafe, who have won just one of their previous 13 matches and are winless in their last six (D4 L2), failing to score in four in that run.
