Barcelona are boasting a number of new players this season, with Ilkay Gundogan having made the switch from Manchester City this summer. The German helped the Cityzens to a historic treble in England and Europe last term, with the midfielder now looking to enjoy further success at the Nou Camp and his new team are favourites to open with a win.

Vitor Roque has also arrived from Paranaense for over £20 million, with Inigo Martinez bolstering the team’s defence after arriving from Athletic Bilbao. There is sure to be too much strength despite the fact that Sergi Busquets and Samuel Umtiti have departed the Nou Camp, with Xavi looking to create a fresher and younger team.

As for Getafe, it’s an opportunity for the home side to catch Barcelona cold and they had a relatively strong start to the second half of last season. Mustering twenty-five points from nineteen games played involved five wins and three draws from nine home games, with the team having confidence in the fact that Barca dropped points in ten games.

However, the best bet of all could be Barcelona to win the game and both teams not to score. We’re talking about a team with a strong defence where twenty goals were conceded in thirty-eight encounters, with this making them the most stubborn team in the division. The game ended goalless last season but Barca should have the edge this time.
