Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction: La Liga | 22.04.2021
Barcelona will be looking to keep an eye on the teams atop La Liga on Thursday night, as they hope to bounce back from the loss they suffered against Real Madrid in their last league game.
La Liga preview
Barcelona’s recent league loss to Real Madrid has given them a small mountain to climb to claim the league title this season. They still have a game in hand on both sides above them, which could reduce Atletico’s lead to two points, which means it is important that they win every game they need to play by the end of the season. They will start after their two title rivals this weekend and could also start the game against Getafe as low as fourth depending on Sevilla’s result on Wednesday. However, the club will still be convinced that they could end the campaign by regaining their league title, and that confidence was reportedly boosted after winning the Copa del Rey last time around. The 4-0 success against Athletic Bilbao delivered a first trophy under Ronald Koeman, with Lionel Messi undoubtedly the star of the show. The Argentine scored twice, while Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong were also on the scoresheet.
Getafe’s battle for European football last season was one of the campaign stories. However, there is a very different challenge for them this quarter as they look to stay in the division. They are just four points ahead of the drop zone and have won just seven games in 31 this season. They haven’t won in their last six games, but they’ve only been beaten twice in that run of form. Getafe won a fourth draw in six last weekend, following a third 0-0 draw in five games. They would have gained confidence after the 0-0 draw against Real Madrid, as they allowed just two shots on target for the defending champions.
Barcelona vs Getafe head to head
Getafe managed to register a victory against Barcelona in the meeting between the teams earlier in the season. However, that victory was their first three points against Barcelona in 15 matches. Barcelona have won four of the previous five.
Barcelona vs Getafe prediction
Getafe have been strong defensively against the top teams in the division in recent weeks as they have won 0-0 draws against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. However, we still expect Barcelona to take the win over the wrestlers at Camp Nou.
