Barcelona vs. Getafe Predictions and Preview

Barcelona have won La Liga again but the manner of their Champions League exit against Liverpool has piled all the pressure and doubts back on Ernesto Valverde.

The Blaugrana are now prioritising their Copa del Rey final against Valencia this month and may well drop points here, following last week’s 2-0 loss in Vigo.

Getafe remain fourth in the standings going into the penultimate round of matches – they are three points above Valencia and are targeting Champions League qualification for the first time in their history.

Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the hosts are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 9/20 with a Getafe victory priced at 11/2 and the draw available at 18/5.

This fixture tends to produce few goals with just six in the most recent three meetings, so under 1.5 goals at 7/2 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 13/10.

A ‘double chance’ on Getafe to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 17/10 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/10.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 13/10 while Barca to win both halves is at 13/5.

One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is now up to 48 goals for the campaign (including 14 in his last 12) as he continues his devastating goalscoring form. He is at 7/10 to continue that run here.

One to watch for Getafe: Veteran striker Jorge Molina has scored four of his 14 La Liga goals this season in his last five outings and is at 11/4 to find the net in this game against a side who shipped four in the week.

Long shot: This match sees La Liga’s second strongest defence (Getafe) face its third (Barcelona), while this game ended 0-0 last season. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
