Barcelona currently sit eighth in La Liga, while Getafe are down in 18th place. It’s early days, but every point counts when you’re ambition is the title – or surviving relegation, for that matter. Sevilla dropped points at Elche last night, drawing 1-1, while Real Madrid beat Real Betis 1-0 at the Benito Villamarin. Atletico Madrid, last season’s champions, play Villarreal this evening.
