Barcelona will look to get back to winning ways in La Liga on Sunday when they host Getafe.

The Blaugrana were held to a 1-1 draw at Espanyol in their last league outing, while their opponents have picked up a point in each of their last three games.

Preview

Barcelona ceded two points to Espanyol last time out as they were only able to salvage a draw at the RCDE Stadium in a tense Catalan derby with their bitter rivals.

The conditions were less than ideal, though:

As Grup 14's Rafael Hernandez noted, the weather made life difficult for Barcelona:

Given the torrential downpour they had to deal with throughout, a point was a creditable result, particularly after going a goal down to Gerard Moreno's strike.

Barring a repeat of the conditions, Barca should be able to get back to playing their usual fluid game, and with that they'll look to pick up three points.

Getafe have a strong defence, though—they've shipped just 21 goals this season—while Barca have some problems of their own at the back, as centre-half Samuel Umtiti will miss the clash after picking up his fifth booking of the La Liga campaign.

The Frenchman has been a key figure at the back for Barca since his arrival at the club in 2016, and his form this season has been particularly impressive, so the side will not be as strong as they could be in any match without him in defence.

Nevertheless, at home to a side who have not managed to pick up a win in their last three matches, the Blaugrana should have enough to see off their visitors.
