Baby, now we got bad blood.
Barcelona and Getafe face off on Saturday afternoon in Catalonia in what could turn out to be a nervous, tense game. The first encounter of the La Liga season in the end of 2015 went along just fine on the pitch, with the Blaugrana winning 2-0 in a good overall performance against a relatively easy opponent. But the aftermath of the game had repercutions, and they might play a part on the game we see at Camp Nou.
The Barça players decided to celebrate Halloween by putting on some costumes and invading the Getafe press conference. They were actually headed to Luis Enrique's presser, but they went the wrong way and caused troubles for themselves. There was giant retaliation from the Getafe higher-ups, journalists and social media as a whole. Barça had to release a statement for the players apologizing for the issue. However, with Getafe being based in Madrid, the Spanish capital media ran with the story, which led to an even worse relationship between Barça players and the Madrid press.
Before this Saturday's game, Getafe officials remembered the episode, and reiterated how disrespectful they thought the Barça players' attitude was last year. And that could have an effect on what we see on the pitch. Will Getafe playrs go a little harder with their challenges and tackles? Will the Blaugrana retaliate? Could this become an unnecessary tense match because of a stupid episode? That we don't know, but we do know these teams don't like each other.
