Getafe vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Getafe are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions since an opening day 1-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid.
Los Azulones have picked up seven points from their six league games to date and came from 3-1 down to rescue a 3-3 draw at Valencia on Wednesday.
Barcelona are already in a mini-crisis this season – they have picked up a miserly one point from their three away matches to date.
They have been beaten by Athletic Club Bilbao and Granada, while being held to a draw at Osasuna, and are now under pressure to put together a winning run after beating Villarreal at home on Tuesday.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the hosts are heavy favourites for this encounter at odds of 9/10 with a Getafe victory priced at 17/5 and the draw available at 12/5.
This fixture tends to produce few with just eight in the most recent four meetings but has produced three in each of the two meetings here so over 2.5 goals at 1 appears to be a solid bet with over 3.5 at 12/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Getafe to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 1 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/5.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 2/1.
One to watch for Getafe: Angel Rodriguez has scored in each of his last three outings for Los Azulones and is at a tempting 3/1 to find the net here.
One to watch for Barcelona: Luis Suarez is back in the Barcelona attack and scored two goals in his return in the recent 5-2 home victory over Valencia. He is available at 6/5 to score in this game.
Long shot: Getafe have the second strongest defence behind Atletico Madrid over the past two years while Barcelona have already failed to score three times this season including two of their last three. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 9/1.
