FC Barcelona vs Getafe Soccer Betting Predictions
Unlike in previous years, FC Barcelona displayed serious grounds for concern. If with 3 points behind the Madrid leader, the Catalans are still in the game to try to win a new title of champion of Spain, they do not reassure in the game. Defeated by Valencia (2-0), they then recovered against Leganes in the King’s Cup (5-0) before being heckled at home by Levante (2-1). Then, the Blaugrana lost to Bilbao in the quarterfinals of the King’s Cup (1-0) and they still did not reassure last week despite the victory obtained on the field of Betis (2-3).
For its part, Getafe is still one of the teams in the form of this Spanish championship. Already very convincing last year, the players in the suburbs of Madrid had ended up missing the qualification for the Champions League. This year they are one of the best teams in Spain. Moreover, they have just won their last 4 La Liga games disputed against Leganes (0-3), Bétis (1-0), Bilbao (0-2) and Valence (3-0) last week. Following this excellent series, José Bordalas’ men climbed onto the 3rd step of the podium, 6 lengths behind their opponent of the day.
