Barcelona vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
The visit to Camp Nou comes just at the perfect time for Getafe. Barcelona have already secured the new La Liga title and Ernesto Valverde will likely mix up his cards a bit in this affair without any importance for his troops. Furthermore, Blaugrana will enter the game in the lowest of spirits after a shocking Champions League elimination to Liverpool on Tuesday evening at Anfield Road.
Primera Division champions dropped a massive 3-0 advantage from the first leg in one of the weakest performances of the Lionel Messi generation. Valverde will face extremely hard times motivating the team for this clash with Getafe who desperately need points to stay inside the top-four in the league ladder.
Barcelona vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Blaugrana were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
Barcelona won 22, drew 6 and lost just 3 of 31 encounters with Azulones.
The Catalans won 11 and drew 4 of 15 home clashes with Getafe (44-9 goal difference).
Barcelona picked up a 1-2 victory from Coliseum Alfonso Perez back at the start of the year, but they failed to break the deadlock in a goalless draw in the previous home clash against Azulones.
Barcelona vs Getafe: Prediction
The visitors returned to winning ways by beating Girona 2-0 at their Coliseum Alfonso Perez last time out. They are three points clear off Valencia and Sevilla in the battle for the fourth position in the Primera Division ladder.
Getafe drew as many as 11 of 18 away fixtures so far in the season. They drew six, lost one and won one of past eight league outings on the road. Barcelona obviously have to be regarded as clear favourites, just as odds suggest, but based on the current situation, the value is certainly with Getafe who are 2.80 to avoid a defeat at Camp Nou. More conservative punters will fancy Jose Bordalas’ men not to lose by two or more goals difference at the odds of 1.60.
