Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Getafe and Barcelona square off against each other in a highly-anticipated game at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Los Azulones aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Real Sociedad, but keeping their 100% record home intact is easier said than done. Getafe boss Pepe Bordalas has a full squad to choose from ahead of the visit of Barcelona. The Catalan giants are on a quest to regain the La Liga title.
Barca aim to return to winning ways after dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Sevilla, and they should take advantage of the fact that there will be no spectators at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. The good news for the visitors is that important defender Clement Lenglet returns to the starting XI after serving his ban before the international break. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Argentine superstar Leo Messi, who was on Man City’s radar during the summer transfer window.
Highlighted Player (Bruno González):
Bruno Gonzales Cabrera is a product of Tenerife football academy. The 184-cm-tall defender played 77 games for los Blanquiazules before joining Real Betis in 2014. Bruno signed a three-year deal with the Andalusian outfit and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the La Liga club.
The centre-back scored three goals in 81 appearances for los Beticos in the league and at the end of the 2016/2017 La Liga campaign he moved to fellow Spanish club Getafe. Bruno Gonzalez was born in Las Galletas, Spain on May 24, 1990 and he has yet to make his debut for the Spain national football team.
You should bear in mind that he scored his first professional goal on December 1, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Girona during his spell with Real Betis. His preferred foot is right and his contract with Getafe should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past.
The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957.
Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
