 Team Report
Next Match: at home to Barcelona, December 22

Angel Lafita has declared that Barcelona are not as a formidable side now as they were under Pep Guardiola, but stressed they are still an excellent team. Getafe are preparing to face the Catalans three times in the next 25 days, first in the Primera Division at home, followed by home and away legs in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey. The forward told reporters: "In the Guardiola era Barca made better use of the pitch, they made it feel longer, wider, and made things difficult for you in every sense, coming for you from everywhere. They do the same now, but it's a different style of play to what they were used to under Pep. But the players remain the same and the quality of the team is the same." He added: "Bettering what Guardiola achieved is practically impossible. That era is incomparable with any other. Bearing that in mind, you cannot reproach Barcelona for anything, they are in fine form, top of the league and doing well in the Champions League."
