FC Barcelona welcome Getafe to Camp Nou for a Copa Del Rey clash, with all the pre-match headlines revolving around the home side’s talisman Lionel Messi.

The Argentina superstar has been out of action since November after tearing his hamstring, and although Barca have maintained their position at the top of La Liga, their only two losses this season have come in Messi’s absence.

Xavi Hernandez, Dani Alves and Marc Bartra have all been omitted from the Barcelona squad by coach Tata Martino, meaning Sergi Roberto could get a game in central midfield, while Jose Manuel Pinto will continue in goal.

For Getafe, Ciprian Marica and Juan Valera should come back into the side, with manager Luis Garcia (not that one) expected to name a similar XI to the team that lost 3-0 to Sevilla at the weekend.

On top form, it is a game Barca are expected to win.
