Barcelona will be looking to finish 2nd in La Liga when they travel south of Madrid to face Getafe.

Victory over Real Betis last weekend secured Xavi’s men qualification for the Champions League, although they will be keen to become the best of the other.

Atletico Madrid’s resurgence in recent weeks has put Diego Simeone’s side back in the spotlight and Barça are keen to secure second place ahead of the final matchday.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

When is kick-off? Sunday, May 15, 6:30 p.m. (BST)
Where is the game played? Coliseum Alfonso Perez
TV station/live stream? La LigaTV (UK), ESPN+ (US)
highlights? LaLiga YouTube Channel
Referee? Jesus Gil Manzano
VAR? Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez

Quique Sanchez Flores hopes Jaime Mata is fit enough to feature after the striker has been missing with a hernia in recent months.

Getafe will rely on the prolific Enes Unal to fire them up to victory while Borja Mayoral will join him in attack.

Xavi will be forced into a serious reshuffle after the midweek win against Celta Vigo saw multiple injuries and suspensions.

Jordi Alba, Eric Garcia and Frenkie de Jong will be out through suspension, while Ronald Araujo has been hospitalized with a concussion after a violent headbutt with team-mate Gavi.

Sergio Busquets will return after his suspended absence, although Gerard Pique, Pedri and Sergino Dest are unlikely to return this season.

Getafe are the league’s worst scorer despite the exploits of Enes Unal, with the lack of chances underscored by consecutive goalless draws before the midweek tie at Osasuna.

The make-up of Xavi’s starting line-up will make for curious reading, although the pressure will ease a little after Champions League qualification was secured following last weekend’s win.

However, Barça still have the ambition to become the best of the rest, so expect them to rush forward from the start.

Prediction: Getafe 0-2 Barcelona
