The FC Barcelona and the Getafe play this Saturday from the 16:00 hours his corresponding party to the seventh day of League. The culés confront to a very uncomfortable rival that the past season was to an alone meeting to classify for the Champions League. The azulones are one of the hardest team of LaLiga and will try to avoid that the Barcelona go out with the three points of the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

The crash will leave, besides, a very special clash for two of the protagonists of the same. Junior Firpo​ will be to title in the Barça by the drop by injury of Jordi Alba, whereas in the Getafe will be it Marc Cucurella. The one of Alella is yielded by the FC Barcelona this season in the group getafense, that saves an option of purchase by six million euros.

The ex canterano barcelonista was one of the options that handled the club to occupy the place of acting left-handed side. After his good campaign in Eibar, the carrilero arrived this summer to the Barça with win to show that had place in the first team. But Valverde and the club decided to bet by another profile of footballer and left that the Catalan left to the Getafe.

The Barça bet by Junior Firpo, that arrived of the Betis by 18 million euros more other 12 optional. The 'Txingurri' and the technical office preferred to the Hispanic-dominincano that, in theory, had more experience that the international Sub-21. For the moment, the comparisons between both are odiosas, since one hardly has played and the another is one of the disclosures of this start of season.

Junior only has had minutes by the injury of Alba. It is therefore by what will play in Getafe and will be able to confront to Cucurella. The ex bético debuted with bad fortune in Granada and committed two errors in the played of the first so much nazarí. It saw him done a flan and Valverde decided to substitute him in the rest. In front of the Villarreal was better, but did not shine especially.

Cucurella Is playing very well

Cucurella, instead, is playing very well by in front of the side and has been headline in all the meetings of League. The one of Alella is increasingly done to First Division and could be a pity for the Barça lose him this next summer. It is very fast, has a big centre with the left-handed and his intensity marks differences to the highest level. This Saturday will play against Firpo and will try to leave him clear to Valverde and to the Barcelona that made a mistake choosing to the of the Dominican Republic.
