Ousmane Dembele fit for Barcelona's clash against Getafe

Barcelona possible Getafe

The hosts remain unbeaten in the league and are seven points above second-placed Atletico Madrid. And in point of fact, Getafe have a small degree of hope of getting something meaningful out of this season, just six points away from the last Europa League qualifying spot.

Luis Suarez was then denied late on by Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita as Valverde's men missed out on the chance to regain a nine-point cushion at the top of the table.

Ernesto Valverde has urged Barcelona to put their Copa del Rey exploits to the back of their minds when they return to LaLiga action against Getafe on Sunday.

If Pique is left on the bench, Valverde suggested he was considering playing left-back Lucas Digne or midfielder Sergio Busquets alongside Mina. Barcelona are going to go on to win the title this season, and they're probably going to step over Getafe to do it. The reigning champions are still 17 points adrift of Barcelona, albeit with a game in hand.

It hadn't gone without a goal at Camp Nou in the league since a scoreless draw against Malaga in November 2016.

"It depends on the work he does, but he is a player in whom we have a lot of hope", said coach Ernesto Valverde when asked if Dembele would play in Sunday's game.

After needing a late equalizer to avoid defeat against crosstown rival Espanyol in the previous round, Barcelona couldn't find the net against midtable Getafe at Camp Nou Stadium.

Barcelona have won their last four La Liga games against Getafe, scoring 16 goals in the process (four per game on average) and conceding just one.

As the tie entered the final 20 minutes, alongside the introduction of Andres Iniesta and Ousmane Dembele, Ernesto Valverde's side showed glimpses of the attacking potency that had seen them dismantle nearly all that has been put in front of them so far this season.

That could see Yerry Mina could make his Liga debut for Barcelona.

Sevilla's victor came within seconds of the restart when Joaquin Correa raced onto Clement Lenglet's through ball and touched it past Girona goalkeeper Bono as Pablo Sarabia bundled home Bernando Espinosa's attempts to clear off the goal-line - with Rojiblancos' goalscorer remaining unclear.
