Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction & Match Preview

Barcelona vs Getafe
Spanish La Liga
Date: 22 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Spotify Camp Nou (Barcelona).

Barcelona will have a nice chance to extend their positive streak of results on Sunday afternoon when they play host to bottom-half Getafe in the 18th round of La Liga.

Blaugrana won the Spanish Super Cup last weekend by beating Real Madrid 3-1 in the final. Gavi offered an exceptional display with two assists and a goal, while Robert Lewandowski and Pedri were also on the scoresheet seven days ago at King Abdullah Stadium in Riyadh.

The team led by Xavi took advantage of Real Madrid’s slip-up in the previous La Liga Matchday two weeks ago at Villarreal as a big 0-1 victory away at Atletico Madrid saw them go three points clear at the top of La Liga standings.

Barcelona conformed their great spell of form on Thursday evening as well, destroying the lower-division side Ceuta 0-5 on the road in Copa del Rey.

Xavi’s men are massive favorites here against Getafe who entered the relegation battle after back-to-back league defeats to Sevilla and Espanyol.

Getafe have had big problems with the lack of defensive meticulousness in the recent matches. They shipped eight goals in the last three defeats across competitions, a run that involves a 3-2 failure away at Levante in Cop del Rey at the start of the year.

Barcelona vs Getafe Head-to-head

  • Barcelona are almost impeccable in the clashes against Getafe on the home patch, winning 15 and drawing 4 of the last 19 H2H games against this rival at Camp Nou.
  • Getafe did keep Barcelona to a goalless draw in the teams’ previous encounter in May last year at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
  • Each of the last three H2H matches between these outfits at Camp Nou finished in Barcelona’s wins with the option of both teams scoring.

Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction

The hosts will come into this in much higher spirits and we expect them to come on top without too many problems in what should be a one-way street from the start to the end.

You can take Barcelona to win both halves at the odds of 2.25, while we will also back Ousmane Dembele to score anytime at the 2.50 odds. Dembele is the main candidate for a goal since Robert Lewandowski is still sidelined through suspension.

Barcelona vs Getafe Betting Tips
