Barcelona vs Getafe: Predictions and Betting Tips
Facing the two Basque teams (Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao) in their opening two matches, Barcelona managed a win and a draw. If the Catalans aspire to be at the top of the standings this season, they know that they have to win their games at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona were last season’s top scorers, with 85 goals in 38 games. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid scored 18 goals less. The bad news for Barça is that their goals were largely thanks to Lionel Messi, who is no longer at the club.
After two narrow defeats in two games, Getafe are looking for their first win of the season, but they must be aware that taking a point at Camp Nou will be very difficult.
There is further bad news for Getafe, as one of their best players, Marc Cucurella, is moving in on a signing with the English club Brighton, who will pay his 18 million euros release fee.
Of the last ten meetings against Barça, Getafe have only managed one win, which came last season.
- Barcelona have scored five goals and conceded three in their last two games
- Three wins, one draw, and one defeat for Barcelona in their last five games
- Two consecutive defeats for Getafe
- Two consecutive matches without scoring for Getafe
Barcelona vs Getafe Predictions
The difference in their level when Barça play at home and when they are away is huge; away, they look like just an average team, but, at home and in front of their own fans, they are always able to put on a show. They will face a Getafe team that will likely put all their effort into defence, and then take advantage of the counterattacks. However, we don’t think that this defensive game will allow them to leave Camp Nou with a point, so we think Barça will take the win.
