The home side are very much the favourites, ahead of our Barcelona vs Getafe preview and soccer odds, as Ernesto Valverde’s men keep firing on all fronts and impressing in both La Liga and the Copa del Rey. The Blaugrana have had a busy fixture list but boast a deep squad.
Barcelona are yet to be defeated in the Spanish top flight so far this season, with their excellent, consistent form ensuring that they don’t look likely to be caught at the top of the table. Getafe are having a fine season themselves but are reliant on their home form.
Our Barcelona vs Getafe predictions suggest that it should be a fairly comfortable evening for the home side, with Los Azulones’ trips away from the capital being the main focus and motivation within our weekend La Liga tips.
Jose Bordalas’ side are very organised and will be tough to break down, but once a couple of goals go in, Barcelona should step into second gear during the second half as they have all season. Ernesto Valverde has plenty of options to choose from to change difficult games.
The hosts are still unbeaten at home in all competitions this season, with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez’s form being particularly helpful of late. That said, Barcelona are also very solid at the back, with the likes of Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Samuel Umtiti having fantastic seasons of their own.
William Hill offers the best value on the home side taking the three points without conceding, which is something that they have done with ease lately versus both Deportivo La Coruna and Levante. Getafe have some firepower, but Barca tend to remain balanced and do not leave themselves exposed on the counter as some top Spanish teams tend to do.
Valverde’s side know that they have to keep pushing relentlessly on in all competitions, and after getting their Copa del Rey semi-final tie out of the way in the last fortnight, they can focus on La Liga until European fixtures roll around once again.
Our Barcelona vs Getafe bets back this to be a fairly comfortable result for Barca, purely down to the fact that Bordalas’ side really struggle when they play away from Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Although they are defensively solid and tough to break down, Barcelona have shown this campaign that they can be utterly merciless and boast Messi to come up with some inspiration against even the most awkward of opponents.
Betfair offer the best value on there being four goals or more at Camp Nou, with Barca managing to score freely against the likes of Levante and Depor of late. Getafe’s tactic of playing on the break could always bear fruit too, with the likes of Jorge Molina, Loic Remy, and Angel Rodriguez offering plenty in the way of cutting edge.
Our Barcelona vs Getafe betting tips suggest that Valverde’s side should be able to keep rolling on in La Liga, with their points lead at the top of the table looking ever-more difficult to try and overcome for the chasing pack.
