Getafe vs Barcelona: Unveiling Pre-Match Talking Points

1 min read

Barcelona has disclosed their lineup for the imminent LaLiga opener against Getafe, set to kick off in less than 12 hours. In a departure from their usual practice of announcing the squad a day prior, the team has taken its time to maximize the availability of key first-team players.

Within the past day, Barcelona succeeded in registering Ilkay Gundogan, Oriol Romeu, Sergi Roberto, and Ez Abde. All four of these players have made it into the squad. However, Marcos Alonso and Inaki Pena are notably absent due to pending registration of their new contracts with LaLiga.

Injury sidelines Inigo Martinez, while Sergino Dest and Clement Lenglet—both players the club is eager to offload this summer—have been left out by Xavi Hernandez.

The absence of Pena paves the way for Ander Astralaga to serve as backup for Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in the Getafe match, marking a significant opportunity for the 19-year-old goalkeeper.

Considering the circumstances, the lineup is as robust as Barcelona could have envisioned. Xavi is surely counting on this lineup to provide the necessary edge as they embark on their journey to defend the La Liga title with a triumphant start.
