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.
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.
