Barcelona name full-strength XI for Getafe clash

The Blaugrana can go five points clear with a win in Madrid

Ernesto Valverde has named his first Barcelona XI of 2019 as they travel to Getafe on Sunday evening.

The Blagarana are looking for the victory that will take them five points clear at the top of the Liga table with nearly half of the games gone.

And they do so having made two changes from the side that beat Celta Vigo in December.

Sergi Roberto and Arthur come in for Nelson Semedo and Sergio Busquets, in what is otherwise their full-strength team.

Lionel Messi, Ousmane Dembélé and Luis Súarez form a potent attack as Gerard Piqué captains them from defence
