Barcelona team news: Predicted Barcelona line up to face Getafe – could Dembele start?

They trail Atletico by nine points.

The Getafe goalkeeper has already struck a pre-contract agreement to join Crystal Palace at the end of the season, and this performance showed why he has admirers in the Premier League.

Getafe continue to defy expectations and look comfortable as mid-table La Liga side.

Messi won a free-kick from a Faycal Fajr foul but, on his 300th appearance at the Nou Camp, the Argentinian sent his try over the top.

The reigning champions are still 17 points adrift of Barcelona, albeit with a game in hand.

Los Che sat back throughout and managed to mount a number of threatening counter-attacking moves.

Was nearly flummoxed by Angel in a one-on-one in the first half, but recovered well.

In the second period he looked more settled, passing the ball with grace and advancing into the midfield.

Inevitably, with PSG on the immediate horizon, Ronaldo would go on to complete his hat-trick with 10 to go, after a horrible mistake from keeper Geronimo Rulli.

"We have to analyse the game, like always, rest and come back to compete next weekend [away to Eibar]".

Barcelona's expensive summer signing Ousmane Dembele reportedly missed the club's training session on Monday afternoon. Tomorrow is also important.

What do you make of talk about the treble?

"It is true that he has a problem and we took a risk on him the other day because it was a decisive game", said Valverde.

Santi Mina put the hosts ahead in the 17th minute only for Sergio Postigo to equalise a minute later.

THIS match will take place on Sunday, February 11.

Ernesto Valverde has blamed Barcelona's goalless La Liga draw with Getafe on fatigue due to a hectic schedule. There have been moments when we could have done with him.

Forming a formidable defensive partnership with Francisco Meza, Mina marshalled Santa Fe to triumphs in Colombia's 2014 Torneo Finalización and 2015 Superliga. Hopefully there won't be any setbacks.

Dembele has been out for nearly a month with a hamstring injury after missing four months with a ruptured tendon earlier in the season. The flag was up, though.

Will Barcelona continue their unbeaten run?
