Barcelona vs Getafe: Prediction and Betting Tips
Barcelona to push for the double
With seven matches still to be played in the season, the La Liga title is still wide open between the top three teams. Barcelona are third at the moment five points behind leaders Atletico Madrid with a game in hand. They won the Copa del Rey by beating Athletic Bilbao 4-0. Barca completely dominated the game and if they continue that form in the league, they will be very hard to stop. With just two clean sheets in six matches, Barca need to improve their defense.
Barcelona have won 13 of their last 15 games and enter this match as the clear favorites to win and continue their surge to win the double now. The Blaugrana are undefeated in 12 home games. In five of those wins, Barca were ahead in the game until the 30th-minute mark. With Lionel Messi’s recent form, Barcelona will be the top contender to win the title. The Argentine has scored six goals in the last five matches.
Getafe need to find a better away form
Four points above the relegation zone, Getafe are in a critical situation and need to grab points however they can. They did just that in their last match when they held Real Madrid to a 0-0 draw. They have just one win in 13 away matches, not a good record as they travel to Camp Nou.
Getafe have lost seven away matches against top 11 teams. They have not won their last six matches, losing two and drawing four. Coach Joseph Bordalas needs to work on his offensive third. Getafe have not been conceding too many goals in recent matches, four goals in six matches, they also haven’t scored too many goals with just two goals in six matches.
- Barcelona have just one home defeat this season
- Barcelona have scored in all of their home matches this season
- Barcelona have scored 12 goals in their last four games
- Getafe have three clean sheets in five games
- Getafe have no wins in six away games
Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction
With the kind of form that Barca are in, it is difficult to see them threatened in this match by Getafe. As we saw in the stats, Ronald Koeman’s team have been winning the first half of their matches and we think that might be the case in this match as well.
Getafe might be in a difficult situation and will put up a fight in this match but we don’t see them troubling Barcelona too much. They will try to close the gaps in defense but Barca have many options to break them down.
