Victory for the Catalan giants will see them halt a two-match winless run and stretch their lead over Atletico Madrid to 12 points, if only for a few hours, at the top of the table

Barcelona midfielder Xavi will miss Sunday's Primera Division clash against Getafe with a hamstring injury.

Reserve goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto (stomach bug) is a minor doubt, but assistant coach Jordi Roura has a clean bill of health otherwise.

Angel Lafita, Mane, Juan Valera and Juan Rodriguez are all out injured for Getafe, while Miguel Angel Moya and Rafa are suspended.

However, defenders Miguel Torres and Alberto Lopo are available after serving bans, and winger Pedro Leon returns from a knee injury.
