The Blaugrana have started their first La Liga season without Lionel Messi since 2004/05 with a stutter.
 
A hard fought 4-2 win over Real Sociedad was soon followed by a disappointing 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao in which young centre-back Eric Garcia was sent off in second half injury time. Although they still sit fourth, things will need to start clicking into gear quickly if a league title charge is still on the cards, minus the magical Argentinian.

A home fixture against struggling Getafe is a great place to start. Goals haven’t been hard to come by for Barcelona, especially at home. With new acquisition Memphis Depay bagging his first goal for the club against Bilbao, the already potent strike force is now primed to go to town on a Getafe side who sit 18th in the league with to losses to begin the campaign.

Back to back 1-0 losses to Valencia and Sevilla have given them the worst possible start and their run only gets worse with this game. Although we fully expect a Barca win here, without Garcia, their defence looks slightly weaker and a goal for the Madrid-based visitors isn’t out of the realms of possibility. 

Verdict

Either way, we should see a few goals here.
