La LIga will be back to full swing after a week absence due to international matches. Barca will be travelling to Getafe to carry on with their excellent start of the season. Marquez and Iniesta are both declared fit for tonight's encounter. There are rumours that Pep Guardiola has already dropped Marquez from the squad. Iniesta also is not expected to start the match but definitely will get some playing time in the second half. Messi and Alves has only arrived back to Barcelona on friday and both are expected to be rested for this encounter. Messi's confidence after Argentina's disastrous qualification campaign should be very low. Meanwhile Getafe temporarily occupy the top spot in La Liga after their victory last week. Getafe is going through a great run of victories and will definitely like to continue on their good run. For Barcelona complacency will be a great factor which will decide the match. Getafe always is a difficult place for Barca to visit and if the player are going to be a bit complacent we could be in real trouble.

Valdes is expected to guard the goal as usual. The defensive combination is not that clear. I am not sure whetehr Alves will start the match so I expect Puyol to start as the right-back and Abidal as left-back. Meanwhile Pique along with new boy Chygrynskiy could partner in centre of defense. Xavi, Toure and Keita is expected to start in the middle. Keita has started showing his class in recent matches and should do good in this match also. The frontline will be a combination of Henry, Ibra and Pedro. Definitely all the talking point will be Iniesta's return and he should definitely see some playing time in the second half most probably in the front line. Keita's resurgence adds a new dimension in the midfield. This could be a very tough match but I expect a hard fough Barcelona victory y a scoreline of 3-1. And definitely I expect Ibrahmovic to continue his goal scoring.
