Getafe welcomes Barcelona in a game from the seventh round of the Spanish La Liga
Getafe welcomes Barcelona in a game from the seventh round of the Spanish La Liga. We are going to spend few minutes and see what’s going on with these two teams in our La Liga predictions.
So far this season is looking far from perfect from Barca. After doing mistakes on three occasions, right now the champions are 6th in the league with 10 points, being four points behind the leader Real Madrid. In three games played away from home, Barca are still without a win. Now the manager Ernesto Valverde must find a way to fix the way his players perform far from the Camp Nou.
In the previous round Barcelona achieved their third win for the season. Los Cules hosted Villarreal and won the game with 2-1. Antoine Griezmann and Arthur scored for Barca, but once again the champions didn’t impress with their performance.
The bad news for Barcelona is the injury of Lionel Messi. The Argentine genius has problems with his thigh, so he will not play against Getafe on Saturday.
Speaking of Getafe, they are currently 10th in the league with 7 points won so far. Their record in La Liga at the moment goes like this: one win, four draws and one loss.
In their last five games in the league Getafe are unbeaten, though – one win and four draws. This is giving them confidence that they might achieve a positive result against Barcelona.
Few days ago Getafe travelled to the Mestalla and made an exciting 3-3 draw against Valencia, despite of being two goals behind at one certain moment. Mata, Jason and Angel scored for the visitors, who can be happy with their performance.
In our La Liga predictions we think that it’s very possible to see Barcelona making another mistake against Getafe. The Catalans are very poor away from home, while Lionel Messi is not playing as well.
