REMEMBER Terry Gibson? Well, we've signed him and while he won't be kicking a football he'll be looking into his crystal ball and bringing us his best Spanish tips every week.
The ex-Spurs, Coventry and Manchester United striker is probably best remembered for his time as part of the infamous Wimbledon Crazy Gang side of the late 80s and early 90s. Now an expert in all things La Liga he works as a pundit and co-commentator on Sky Sports’ Spanish football coverage and is a contributor to unibet.
Here are Terry's tips for Getafe's visit to Barcelona.
Barcelona v Getafe (Sun 3.15pm)
Barcelona have other things on their mind but they are under far less pressure than Real Madrid. Barca play Chelsea on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge but with a significant lead in the title race and a far stronger squad than Madrid.
Again, I expect Ernesto Valverde to make changes but that means Coutinho, who is ineligible for the Champions League, will play and possibly Ousmane Dembele will return from his most recent injury to face Getafe.
Against Chelsea, I expect a midfield of Paulinho, Rakitic, Busquets and Iniesta, with Suarez and Messi up front, so any of those could miss out on this one. They are showing a real desire to hold onto their unbeaten record in the league and that will be the motivation in this game, they showed that last week at Espanyol.
Getafe can be a difficult opponent and they grind out points. It’s three draws and a win their last four and Jose Bordolas has created a team that is hard to beat. They normally like to play a 4-4-2 but I’m expecting a 4-5-1 in this game – bodies behind the ball, maybe the odd counter attack but plenty of aggression in the tackle.
It could take Barca a while to break them down but I anticipate they will eventually, due to the amount of possession they will enjoy.
- Barca 2, Getafe 0 (6-1, Unibet)
