Barcelona vs. Getafe, 2014 Copa del Rey: Preview and TV schedule

David Ramos

Barcelona must deal with a Copa del Rey Round of 16 first leg match as a massive game against Atlético Madrid looms

Barcelona and Getafe meet for the first leg of their Copa del Rey Round of 16 tie at the Camp Nou. Barca overturned an early 2-0 deficit against Getafe when the two teams met late last year, eventually winning 5-2. Whether or not this match will bring the same emphatic result remains to be seen.

The Blaugrana won't admit it but it would be shocking if their attention isn't a leaf a little bit on this weekend's huge league match against Atlético Madrid. Combine that with the beginnings of a very busy stretch for Gerardo Martino's team and the door could be open for Getafe to pull off a surprise.

Lionel Messi has been cleared by team doctors but he's likely to start on the bench for the Blaugrana. He's still expected to see playing time though to help him continue to work back into match fitness. Dani Alves, Marc Bartra and Xavi Hernandez have all been left off the match roster by Martino. None of the trio are hurt and it's purely a coach's decision.
