Last time: Barcelona had to come from a goal behind to narrowly triumph 2-1 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in September. Gabu Shibakasi put the hosts ahead before Barca struck back through Denis Suarez and Paulinho, in a game where Ousmane Dembele picked up an injury.
Barcelona v Getafe Predictions and Preview
Barcelona are running away with the league title, nine points clear of Atletico Madrid in second and a further eight of fourth-placed Real Madrid.
The Blaugrana were frustrated in their most recent league outing – a 1-1 draw at Catalan neighbours Espanyol – and they will want to bounce back to winning ways.
Ernesto Valverde’s side will find it tough having played just three days early in their Copa del Rey semi-final against Valencia, while Getafe are always resilient and tough to crack.
Barca are still priced as overwhelming favourites to take all three points at odds of 1/7, while a shock away win is available at 25/1 with the draw at 21/2.
If you fancy the home side to be in the lead at both half-time and the final whistle, you can find odds of 1/2 while a Barca win to nil is priced at 10/11.
Barca’s last few games – 2-0, 2-1, 1-0, 1-1 – have been low scoring, while eight of Getafe’s last nine games have not produced more than two goals – fewer than 2.5 goals is 5/2 while under 3.5 goals is 23/20.
One to watch for Barcelona: Luis Suarez has already scored 19 goals this season for Barcelona, including 13 in his last 12 in all competitions. He is priced at 10/21 to score anytime in this fixture.
One to watch for Getafe: Angel Rodriguez has been Getafe’s top league scorer with eight league goals in just 12 starts, and he is available at 11/2 to find the net at any point in this game.
Long shot: Getafe are unbeaten in their last four games and have lost only two of their last nine. You can get them as a ‘double chance’ to win or draw this game at a price of 13/2.
