Barcelona will be hoping to continue their winning ways in the La Liga when they take on Getafe on TuesdayReuters

Barcelona take on Getafe at the Nou Camp as they look to cement their place at the top of the La Liga.

The Catalans have been very impressive in the La Liga of late, picking up 25 points from a possible 30 in their last 10 fixtures.

However, Real Madrid are just two points behind them, which means a single slip up could see them lose their top spot to the Los Blancos in this last stretch of the season.

As a result, Barcelona need to stay focused and try to get positive results in their remaining fixtures if they want to reclaim the Spanish title this season.

The Catalans are expected to beat the 13th placed injury plagued Getafe squad on Tuesday, but manager Luis Enrique insists that he is not taking any team for granted.

"They are a dangerous team," the Spaniard told Barcelona's official website. "They defend with intensity and have quality in attack. Despite missing players they're nearly safe from relegation and I'm sure they'll create trouble for us."

Despite admitting that he does not know how many points his side need to seal the La Liga title, Enrique insists that a win against Getafe will be very important especially with Real Madrid right behind them.

"I don't know how many points we are going to need to win the championship" he said. "But the three against Getafe are going to be very important," he added.

"Real Madrid are right behind us. Getafe may not be as attractive a prospect as Sevilla, Valencia or Espanyol, but the players are the first people to know how difficult this game is going to be."

Getafe, on the other hand will also be looking to get a positive result against Barcelona despite them being the underdogs on Tuesday.

The Azulones have been very inconsistent this season, failing to maintain any sort of streak.

In their last 10 La Liga fixtures, Pablo Franco's side have win four, lost five and drawn one.

They won't be very confident going into this game due to them having recorded back-to-back defeats in their last two fixtures against Athletic Bilbao and Levante respectively.

Although Getafe boss Franco admits that Barcelona will be a very tough opponent, he insists that his side will be looking to make things very difficult for the Catalans on Tuesday.

"Barca are a fantastic team and are on an extraordinary run of form, perhaps their best of the season," said Franco, according to ESPN. "But we will go there ready to compete and looking to make life difficult for them.''

Expected Lineups:

Barcelona: Bravo; Alves, Pique, Bartra, Mathieu; Xavi, Mascherano, Rakitic; Neymar, Suarez, Messi

Getafe: Guaita; Alexis, Velazquez, Naldo, Vigaray; Lacen, Rodriguez, Castro; Leon, Diawara, Fredy
