- Ansu Fati has been ruled out of Barcelona trip to Getafe
- The 16-year-old suffered knee injury in their preparation for this weekend's game
- Barca will be hoping they can end their winless run away from home with this tie
Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati has been ruled out of his side's La Liga clash against Getafe due to the tendon problem in his right knee.
The 16-year-old has scored twice and assisted one other in the last six matches for the Catalans in his debut season.
His injury means he will join captain Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba and Samuel Umtiti on the sidelines as they hope to build on their 2-1 win over Villarreal earlier this week.
Barcelona confirmed the winger will not be available for the clash at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez Stadium later this evening, adding they don't know how long he will be out for.
Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele might join Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez to complete the three-man attack for the Bluagrana.
It would be recalled that the Catalans have struggled away from home since the start of this season - having picked just one point in their last three matches on the road.
They would hope they end their win-less run away from home with their trip to Getafe at the end of the match this weekend.
Meanwhile, the manager said on their official website that: "It will be a similar game to those we've played there in previous years. Getafe are a difficult team to beat, with a lot of good attacking players.

"They usually create chances at home and give you very few opportunities. We need to take a step up away from home.
"Getafe are going to be very demanding because of their attitude, which demands that you start the game very well."
Legit.ng earlier reported that Lionel Messi is in a race against time to get fit for Barcelona's crucial Champions League tie against Inter Milan.
La Blaugrana captain was substituted in their home 2-1 win over Villarreal on Tuesday, September 24, due to a thigh injury.
The 32-year-old's home debut was prematurely brought to an end after missing Barca's first-four La Liga matches which they only managed to win two of them.
