Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Despite dropping two points in a goalless draw with Girona, Barcelona moved one step closer to regaining the La Liga title as they are 13 points clear of second-place Real Madrid ahead of Matchday 29. Xavi’s men aim to get their job done in Primera Division as soon as possible, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Getafe in Sunday’s encounter. Ferran Torres is pushing for a start, while all Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, Andreas Christensen, and Frenkie De Jong should miss out with injuries.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, failed to spoil Real Sociedad’s party in San Sebastian, with the team remaining in the danger zone. In the first half of the season Barcelona defeated Getafe thanks to Pedri’s goal, and even though the prolific midfielder misses Sunday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. As for the home side, forward Jaime Mata remains in the recovery room, while midfielder Mauro Arambarri is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
