Barcelona vs Getafe Match Preview
Barcelona bounced back from their shock exit from the Copa Del Rey by taking down Real Betis on the road with a narrow 3-2 scorecard. The hosts have now picked up the win in each of their past three LaLiga fixtures, and have stumbled just once in their previous twelve as well.
It is also worth mentioning that, with forty-nine points to their name, the Catalans are currently playing second fiddle to Los Blancos by a three-point deficit.
Meanwhile, Getafe are right behind the hosts on the ladder at the moment. The visitors are on a four-match winning streak of their own, as we speak, with their most recent victory coming against Valencia by a thumping 3-0 scoreline.
Impressively, the guests have scored nine goals from their previous four games alone. That too, while conceding none.
However, Getafe certainly have their work cut out in this one, as Barcelona are without a doubt at their best on home soil. As such, the visiting faithful will have to keep their fingers crossed in this one.
Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction
Barcelona are sporting the best home statistics in the cluster and there can be no surprises there. The Catalans have dropped points on just one occasion here, and are, at present, one among the only three teams that are yet to taste defeat at home.
In sharp contrast, Getafe have stumbled thrice on the road so far. To make matters worse, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous sixteen visits here on the trot.
Given the dominant form that Barcelona are on, in their own backyard, it is going to take nothing short of a miracle for Getafe to pick up even a point this week.
Furthermore, Getafe have looked lively in the final third, even on the road. Admirably, they have found the back of the net five times from their past two outings alone.
Additionally, goals have always been a given at Camp Nou. In fact, eight of their past ten h2h meetings here have featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Hence, expect no dearth of goals come Saturday too.
