Getafe currently find themselves in seventh place in the league standings, as they have won two of their four fixtures so far this season. They have scored four goals and conceded three from their fixtures so far, but they will be looking to bounce back against Barcelona as they suffered their first defeat of the campaign last time out. That defeat came against Real Sociedad, as Getafe were hammered 3-0. It was a surprisingly poor performance by Getafe in that fixture as they managed just one shot o target in the 90 minutes. Their misery was compounded in the final ten minutes, which was when Sociedad scored two of their three goals.
