Barcelona v Getafe: Probable Starting Line-ups – Arda Turan expected to start

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona

Barcelona take on Getafe at the Camp Nou hoping to extend their unbeaten run to a new record of 37 games.

Barca already smashed the 26 year old record held by Real Madrid when they went 35 games unbeaten a fortnight ago and are currently on an unprecedented run.

Luis Enrique will be without the suspended Javier Mascherano and Rafinha Alcântara as well as Sandro Ramírez are out injured.

Arda Turan put on an impressive display against Eibar last week and is expected to keep his place in the starting line-up. It is also worth nothing that Barcelona have won all 14 games in which the Turkish international has featured this season.

Enrique may decide to rest Ivan Rakitic ahead of the Champions League clash against Arsenal while Iniesta is likely to start alongside Roberto Sergi in midfield.

Getafe will be without six players due to injuries and suspensions. To make matters worse they are not doing particularly well in the league and will be lucky to escape with a just a narrow defeat.
