La Liga 2022-23
A week ago, Barcelona secured their record 14th Spanish Super Cup title. This trophy was Xavi’s first. In the middle, the team played in Africa, which became the third continent for their playing geography in January, where they defeated Ceuta with a score of (5-0).
Barcelona have a three-point lead at the top of the table but have been unconvincing in their last three rounds in La Liga.
In the last home game, Barcelona played a draw with Espanyol (1-1), and managed to concede the first goal into their own net. For 16 rounds, the hosts have 13 victories and two draws, which corresponds to 41 points.
The incentive to win the first ever victory at this stadium is as strong as to stop Getafe’s run of three defeats in a row. In addition, manager Quique Sánchez Flores presented an unfortunate and expected larger consequence in the event of an unforeseen weekend away from Espanyol (1-2).
A small number of retreats, as the upcoming opponent is a team the club have struggled with, failing to come close to one of its last seven revealed cases in La Liga.
Four victories and five draws include 17 points and 15th position in the standings. The attack, which differed only 16 times, looks terrible.
