Centre-back David Angel Abraham says Getafe must overcome ‘the best side in the world’ in order to beat Barcelona this weekend.
Even so, despite the Argentine’s accolade he feels that Tito Vilanova’s men are not unbeatable.
“We will try to take points off them in our own stadium, which we did against Real Madrid, but Barcelona are not unbeatable even if they are the best side in the world. “We believe in ourselves and know what we are capable of,” he told a Press conference.
Abraham joined Los Azulones in the summer from Basel and after impressing in the opening two La Liga fixtures – a 2-1 win defeat to Sevilla and the 2-1 home win over Real Madrid – missed last week’s 1-1 draw with Deportivo de La Coruna at Riazor.
Nonetheless, the 26-year-old says he has recovered and is looking forward to the clash with Barca at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
“I’ve recovered from injury and have been training with the squad since the start of the week, so I’m available to the boss [Luis Garcia Plaza],” he declared.
“We are confident and a point from this game would be very good, but we know what we have to do and, if we are as compact as we were against Real Madrid, then we could take all three.”
President Angel Torres said last week that Getafe’s squad is among the six best in La Primera, but Abraham was guarded when asked to comment.
“We hope at the end of the season we are in a good position and the President is right. “We will try to enter the final week with a chance of getting into Europe and that is what we are all aiming for,” replied Abraham, who added that he thought Lionel Messi was ‘the best player in the world’.
“In my opinion he is the best in the world. What he has done in the last five years has been incredible and I hope he brings us a World Cup, which is what every Argentinean wants.”
