Getafe vs Barcelona
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Getafe encountered their first loss this season in the last league clash. Their previous encounter was on the road and was defeated by Real Sociedad with a 3-0 scoreline.
Jose Bordalas will not have much time to pick up his team from that loss, as they are to host Barcelona in the upcoming match on Saturday.
Barcelona has been on a roll since they have lost the title last season to Real Madrid. They are unbeaten in all three clashes so far and will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Sevilla.
Getafe vs Barcelona Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last nine clashes has ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 2-1 home win for Barca.
- The visitor has been unbeaten in their past 17 meetings.
- Both teams have scored in two of their recent five fixtures.
- The host has won none of the clashes at home since 2009.
Getafe vs Barcelona Prediction
After keeping a clean sheet for each of the first three fixtures in the league schedule, Getafe ruined their goal difference with a 3-0 loss on the road in the last encounter. Playing on the back of that loss will probably reduce the morale of the players for the upcoming match.
They had an average of 1.0 goal per match in the campaign until now, and it will not stand as a huge threat for the Catalonian team in the latter’s visit. Barcelona has conceded only one goal so far in their three appearances in the campaign.
There is no doubt that Messi and Co. will create more chances in the game than the host. We know Barcelona for their poor form outside Camp Nou, which will be the only hope for Bordalas’s men. The away win in full-time will still be a probable tip, since their recent outings have turned in favor of the FCB.
Only two of Getafe’s recent five h2h meetings with Barca have seen both teams score. Besides, the visitor has kept a clean sheet in their most recent visit to this venue. This points to the tip for Barcelona to win either half of the game in ninety minutes.
