While progress into the next round does look likely, Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino is not taking anything for granted.
"We have never hidden behind the result of a previous match," Martino said. "We will play as if the tie was at 0-0."
Getafe have pulled off a big upset before, beating Barcelona 4-0, after being thumped 5-2 in the first leg of their Cup tie in 2007. "Even if that hadn't happened, football is full of surprises and we have to do what we can to avoid them," Martino added.
Barcelona received some good news on Wednesday, with talented defender Marc Bartra signing a new contract with the club which keeps him tied to the Spanish side until 2017, and Martino could not have been happier with the development.
"It's very good news. Bartra, [Andres] Iniesta, Sergio Busquets... they are players that have a lot to give Barca," Martino said. "Bartra is a very young player who's earning his spot in the first team.
"He's a quality footballer, he's eager to succeed in the Barca shirt and he's learning alongside of [Gerard] Pique, [Carles] Puyol and [Javier] Mascherano. It's fundamental for Barca to have him. I think it's good news for all Barca supporters."
Getafe manager Luis Garcia insisted his side can spring an upset, even if reducing the 4-0 deficit is "next to impossible."
"It's complicated for us to make a comeback," he said. "It's not impossible, but next to and what we have to do is win. The feeling we have is that against them, we've not had bad games. Something has to happen in this game, that we're very good and there's some circumstance that helps us.
"Against these modern day Barcelona or Real Madrid sides, I'm not talking about those of six years or so ago, I don't remember once there being a side medium level side in La Liga, that have scored four or five goals against them.
"It's not going to be easy, but we have to try to win and we can't think about anything other than that. We have to be realistic, there's no such thing as impossible, but for sure we have to try to win, because that would serve as a good step forward for us.
"We're going to press up field when we can and try to steal the ball in their half of the pitch, from front to back and when we don't have the ball, keep it tight, because when they break your lines, they can kill you."
