Getafe are unbeaten in last four league ties, but the streak will be on a heavy test this Sunday when the league’s newcomers are about to take on the sovereign leaders Barcelona at Camp Nou.
Blaugrana will head into the game high on confidence after beating Valencia in the second leg of their Copa del Rey tie as well to advance into the final where they will play Sevilla for the trophy in April…
Watch best moments of the week at FC Barcelona:
The Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho has scored his first goal for Barcelona successfully converting an assist from Luis Suarez. We can expect to see the former Liverpool’s star on the pitch from the first minute against Azulones.
Ernesto Valverde will have certain troubles with his defensive line as Samuel Umtiti will skip the match while Gerard Pique might also be unavailable due to a slight injury as reported by the Catalan press.
Nonetheless, it should leave up the space for Jerry Mina to make his Primera Division debut in the starting lineup. Given that Getafe have really found it tough to produce in the final third on travels in this term of Primera Division, we do believe that the hosts will be able to keep their net untouched once again in spite of the mentioned absences.
Barcelona vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Barcelona have entirely dominant in this match-up over the course of history.
Blaugrana have won 11 and drawn three of 14 home ties against Getafe.
The Catalans have won each of last four meetings with Azulones conceding only one goals in last five H2H games.
Reach of last two H2H meetings between these two sides ta Camp Nou have ended in Getafe’s disasters (6-0 on both occasions).
Barcelona vs Getafe: Prediction
Barcelona to keep a clean sheet is the standout bet here since Getafe have notched only one goal in last four games away from Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Since Barca have literally demolished Getafe in last two H12H meetings at Camp Nou, we’ll go with the hosts to win by three or more goals this time at 1.95.
