A two games to finish the season, nor Barcelona neither Getafe they have finished resolving their affairs. They have them very much on track, yes, but there are still chances that they will miss the target at the last moment.
In the case of the Catalans, they already have assured the Champions League next year, but the financial situation of the club is such that they are forced to finish second to play the Spain Supercup the next academic year and ensure some essential extra income for the entity.
As for the people of Madrid, it is difficult to think that they could lose the category, but stranger things have been seen. The two teams would be worth a tie to shore up their respective seasons, but already yesterday Xavi He warned that this will most likely not be the result this afternoon.
Just in case, the azulgranas will have to keep an eye on the coliseum. Although it is a stadium in which they have historically obtained good results (12 wins, four draws and two losses), the unpredictability of this Barca it is unheard of. Besides, until now, in all those visits, there had always been a certain Leo Messi to take the chestnuts out of the fire.
Besides, Xavi You will have to use your ingenuity to resolve the large number of casualties with which you reach this commitment. Especially on the defensive line, where he’s guaranteed to have to make some inventions.
The best news is that Ronald Araujo will be able to travel to Madrid. Xavi will not give the list until today, but the Uruguayan already trained normally yesterday. The mishap he suffered during the confrontation with the Celta Vigo it’s already over.
It also remains to be seen how Xavi solves the problem in midfield. If the other day he couldn’t count on Busquets, today the same thing happens with Frankie de Jong. He could choose to repeat the system change that he already introduced against Celta, a 4-2-3-1 with Busquets and Gavi in the double pivot and all the artillery from there.
bullets in the chamber
Score and it’s over. The Getafe He has in his hand to achieve a salvation that will put an end to a tough season with historical overtones for how the course would have performed. The statistics and probabilities say that there is less than 1% of the azulones losing the category but, make no mistake, a locker room will never cling to probability in such a bizarre game. It will be unavoidable to pull transistor. The southern team of the Madrid’s community knows that if the bullet from the Coliseum misses, he has in the chamber a victory of the real Madrid in it New Mirandilla or a possible tie or victory of the Lightning in Balearics.
Quique will be able to count on all his men except for Stefan Mitrovićsanctioned after his expulsion in Sadar, and Jaime Mata, who is following his recovery process. The man from Madrid doubts on the right side after the good moment of Juan Iglesias, as well as the midfield with the company of Arambarri and Maksimovic, with Florentino Luis, Aleñá and Óscar Rodríguez fighting for that place. Okay Yokuslu will fill in for Mitrovic at the back.
