Getafe v Barcelona

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

The home side is seventh in the table, just a point outside the European spots in the Spanish top-flight. A five-game unbeaten run in the league has helped Getafe to their highly respectable position.

Last time out in La Liga, Jose Bordalas' team drew 1-1 with Girona. The match was Getafe's third league match in a row to produce under 2.5 goals.

Getafe have a decent recent home record in La Liga, winning three of their previous four matches. However, their recent home matches in La Liga have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in 12 of their last 13 games.

League leaders Barcelona seem to have found their top form again, as the champions have now won their last four La Liga games, without conceding a goal. Ernesto Valverde's side has also scored at least two goals in each of the four victories.

Last time out, the Blaugrana recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Celta Vigo at the Nou Camp.

The Catalan giants are now unbeaten in their last five away games in La Liga, recording two straight wins too. The visitors have also managed to score at least three goals in three of their last four away matches in the Spanish top-flight.

The recent history of this fixture is on Barcelona's side, as they have won four of the previous five games against Getafe.

Team News

Getafe looks set to be without Markel Bergara and Amath Ndiaye due to injury. Barcelona have their own injury problems, with Samuel Umtiti, Malcom, Sergi Samper, Thomas Vermaelen and Rafinha all expected to miss out through injury.

Match Prediction

Barcelona heads into this game in good form and I can see them recording a victory in a high scoring encounter.
