Getafe vs. Barcelona Tips, Preview and Predictions

Getafe vs. Barcelona, La Liga

Barcelona travel to Madrid on Sunday to take on Getafe in a match that is still hugely important for Xavi’s side. The league title may be long gone but finishing in second would mean a place in the lucrative Supercopa de España in Saudi Arabia next season.

Getafe vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview

Bacrelona beat Celta Vigo on Tuesday thanks largely to two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang either side of the half time break. But the win was overshadowed by the injury that Ronald Araújo suffered after a clash of heads with Gavi in the second half. Fortunately the defender seems to be all right, but the incident took the shine off what was actually a very impressive win for the Catalan side. Xavi will now want another victory to consolidate second place.

Getafe fans will also be happy with the way their club’s season has gone. Michel was stripped of his head coach duties after just eight games of the campaign, after picking up just the one point in his last game in charge. Quique Sánchez Flores has done a wonderful job since coming to the club and safety is all but assured.

Getafe vs. Barcelona full time result odds

After a couple of slip ups, Barcelona have got back to winning ways and have ended the season in a positive manner. It was not always looking to be so easy for them to finish second but Xavi has steadied the ship. Getafe will look to frustrate the visitors, as is their style, but will probably not be able to keep out even a Barcelona side weakened by suspensions. The away win is priced at 4/6.

Getafe vs. Barcelona both teams to score odds

Only bottom-placed Alavés have scored fewer goals than Getafe this season – and the Madrid club have never really been known for their prolific strike rate. But Turkish forward Enes Ünal has managed a few this season and will probably be the main hope of a surprise win. The Barcelona defence has not been particularly tight in recent weeks either – and the enforced changes to the side could mean that both teams do score, at odds of 17/20.

Getafe vs. Barcelona correct score odds

Even if Getafe do manage to find the net on Sunday, it is still unlikely that Barcelona will come away from Madrid without all three points. All of the Blaugrana’s attacking options should be fit and raring to go, so there could be goals to celebrate here. It really depends on how well Barca get going here – but a 3-1 away win, priced at 14/1 looks a good option.

Getafe vs. Barcelona first goalscorer odds

Aubameyang might have scored the two goals that effectively killed off the game against Celta Vigo on Tuesday, but it was Memphis Depay who opened the scoring once again. The Dutch striker is still the club’s leading goal scorer in La Liga and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally against this Getafe side. There are, of course, many other options to go for here – but Depay looks to offer the best value.
