It's first plays fourth at Camp Nou on Match Day 37 in La Liga. Whilst many people would have fully expected this season's Champions Barcelona to be where they are in the standings, not so many would have predicted that it would be Getafé occupying fourth spot.

This has been something of a traumatic week for Barcelona as they collapsed in truly dramatic fashion in the second leg of a Champion's League tie for the second year in succession. With nothing really to play for here, how will they bounce back in this one? The fact that this is their final home game of the season should at least help in that regard.

Only three points ahead of both Valencia and Sevilla head into the game, and with the goal difference being very tight between the sides, Getafe will at least keep their fate in their own hands should they avoid defeat here.

Barcelona picked up the points in the reverse of this fixture with a 2-1 win in Getafé. The game here last season ended in a goalless draw.

Luis Suárez, Ousmane Dembélé and Rafinha are all out injured for Barcelona. Amath Ndiaye, Vitorino Antunes and Markel Bergara are out injured for Getafé whilst Bruno González and Jaime Mata are suspended.

Barcelona have lost only one of eighteen at home this season, winning each of their last six, keeping cleans sheets in four of those games.

Getafé have been so tough to beat on the road this season in losing only three of 18 - drawing a remarkable eleven of these games.

We aren't sure whether that midweek catastrophe for Barcelona will be good for Getafé or not. The suspicion however is that it may well be bad news, as the champions will surely be out to prove a point. A narrow home win may be on the cards here.

Prediction: Barcelona 2 - 1 Getafé
