Barcelona vs Getafe LIVE: both teams will face each other this Sunday, January 22, for matchday 18 of LaLiga Santander. The match is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. (Peruvian time) at the Spotify Camp Nou stadium. After winning the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid, the Barça team goes out to consolidate itself at the top of the Spanish tournament.
The game between the two teams will be broadcast on ESPN 2 and Star Plus.
The Super Cup under his arm, the first title since April 2021, the first trophy of Xavi Hernández’s stage, the leadership of LaLiga and, above all, the good feelings in his game is what Barcelona will offer this Sunday against the depressive Getafe.
This is how Barcelona arrives
Barça is at its best, not of the course, but surely of recent years. He has stuck his head out and found a pattern of play with Gavi, as a difference. The young Sevillian supports the tip of attack on the left in the definition and adds a fourth man in the defensive phase, with what seems that the Barça have achieved the balance.
And the results accompany him. He won against Atlético de Madrid (0-1), in a match with better results than football, eliminated Betis on penalties of the Super Cup (2-2 in the semifinals), overwhelmed Real Madrid in the final (3-1) and then went through the cup round after the 0-5 in Ceuta.
While Barcelona will try to live a party, Getafe will fight not to fall into the abyss, since it will arrive at Camp Nou on the verge of the relegation positions and with the pain of a technician, Quique Sánchez Flores, who does not feel the support of a good part of the levels of the club.

This is how Getafe arrives
Getafe is a team that is assailed by all doubts. The defeat against Espanyol (1-2) last weekend, together with the other two of 2023 against Levante (3-2) and Sevilla (2-1), have caused Quique Sánchez Flores’ project to falter.
Quique himself, at a press conference, showed some regret for his situation with several phrases that hinted at his discontent with almost everything around him: “Projects need more drive and more union.” “I hadn’t known a turbulent Getafe where the team had still tried to progress.” “It shows signs of frustration, it shows that there are players who are not playing for different reasons, who are on the bench but cannot leave.”
Criticized by his fans for several days (they ask for his departure from Getafe), Quique will have to face a very complicated calendar starting from an extremely difficult starting line. The Camp Nou, where the blue team has never won, does not seem the best springboard to gain momentum before receiving Betis and visiting Atletico Madrid.
