Jordi Alba insists Barcelona can handle unusual kickoff
"Getafe are a very difficult opponent," Alba told the club's official website.
"They are aggressive, have quality players and play good football. They will make things difficult for us, but the fact we are playing at 12 shouldn't be any excuse.
"February will be an awkward month with very difficult matches, but we have to maintain the same intensity in all competitions. The team is capable of doing that and has shown it in previous years."
