            Barcelona vs Getafe Prediction & Betting Tips

            Barcelona host Getafe in what could be a crucial game for their potential title hopes this season, as they look to gain ground on the sides above them and create some separation with those below.

            Date: 24/02/24

            Kick-off time: 15:15

            Venue: Nou Camp

            Getafe will be hoping to put a dent in Barcelona’s slim title aspirations when they travel to the Nou Camp this weekend. Barca are currently third in La Liga, two points behind second-place Girona, and eight points behind Real Madrid, though the former have a game in hand on Monday night. Winning the title is still considered a long shot, given the inconsistencies of Barca and the strengths of the two teams ahead them, but a victory this weekend could put some pressure on and kick-start a strong end to the season.

            In contrast, the visitors sit in 10th, just four points behind Real Betis in sixth. A win would could put them firmly in the race for the final European spot. However, defeat may leave them with too much ground to make up, as they compete with at least four other sides.

            There has been a distinct lack of goals in this fixture in recent seasons, with just one scored in the last four meetings. The three 0-0 draws all came at the home of Getafe, with Barca winning 1-0 at the Nou Camp at the beginning of 2023. Pedri got the goal that day, assisted by Raphinha.

            The reverse fixture earlier this season was a tense, closely-fought affair. Both teams had a man sent off in the 0-0 stalemate. Raphinha was shown a red just prior to half time for violent conduct, but the hosts were unable to take advantage of their extra man before Jaime Mata was shown a second yellow in the 57th minute. It was a feisty game which saw a total of 10 yellow cards given out. Barcelona manager Xavi also saw red.

            Despite goals being hard to come by in the last few meetings, both sides have been involved in some high-scoring games as of late. The home side will look to Robert Lewandowski to find the back of the net who, as expected, tops the scoring charts with 12 goals. Ferran Torres trails him with seven, though he has been missing with injury. Ilkay Gundogan has also provided a threat from midfield. Borja Mayoral could give the Barca defence plenty of problems, with his 15 goals scored this season the second-highest in the league.

            Barcelona

            In their last five games, Barcelona have won three, drawn one and lost one. Barcelona started this stretch of games with a 5-3 home defeat to Villarreal. They had gone 2-0 down, but managed to peg the visitors back to 2-2 with goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Pedri in eight second-half minutes. They then took the lead three minutes later as Eric Bailly put the ball in his own net. Goncalo Guedes equalised in the 84th minute. With the game headed for a draw, Villarreal scored very deep into stoppage time to snatch all three points. They added a fifth soon after in the 12th added minute to condemn Xavi’s men to a painful defeat.

            They responded to this heartbreak by beating Osasuna 1-0 at the Nou Camp. Vitor Roque’s second-half goal was the difference between the two sides. Roque scored again in the following 3-1 win at Alaves but was also sent off, though it did not lead to any more goals. Robert Lewandowski and Gundogan were also on the scoresheet.

            A thriller with Granada earned Barca their only draw in this run, as they came from behind twice to salvage a point. Sixteen-year-old Lamine Yamal opened the scoring, though it was cancelled out just before half time. Facundo Pellistri put the visitors ahead, but Lewandowski provided a quick response. Barcelona fell behind once more, but Yamal completed his brace with ten minutes to go.

            Their most recent outing saw them clinch an extremely late winner from the spot, courtesy of Lewandowski. The striker had given them the lead on the stroke of half time but Iago Aspas made sure their advantage did not last long, however, Barcelona picked up a big three points.

            Getafe

            In their last five games, Getafe have won two, drawn two and lost two. Their sole defeat came against league leaders Real Madrid, as they lost 2-0 at home. Joselu scored either side of half time to condemn the hosts to defeat.

            This followed another 2-0 result at home, but this time they were victorious against Granada. Mason Greenwood and Borja Mayoral put them ahead before the break. A pair of penalties meant the points were shared with Real Betis. Their last victory came a week ago against Celta Vigo, and it was an action-packed affair. Two quick-fire strikes gave Getafe a comfortable lead at the break as Mayoral and Jamie Mata scored. The lead was wiped out with goals in the 71st and 85th minutes. However, Mata struck at the death to secure all three points for his side.

            The most recent outing saw them pick up another point at Villarreal. They will be disappointed though, as they had taken a first-half lead through Nemanja Maksimovic only for Alberto Moreno to equalise ten minutes after the restart.
