Barcelona Look to Extend Unbeaten Run Against Getafe

Barcelona Look to Extend Unbeaten Run Against Getafe

Barcelona’s impressive two-game winning streak in La Liga was halted by a thrilling 3-3 draw against Granada.

However, they bounced back with a victory in their latest match, maintaining their unbeaten run that now stretches to four games. This unbeaten streak sees them sitting comfortably in third place, just eight points behind leaders Real Madrid.

Barcelona Boasting Strong Offense, Leaky Defense

Barca’s offensive line has been firing on all cylinders, netting a staggering nine goals in their last four league matches. Polish striker Robert Lewandowski continues to lead the charge, solidifying his position as the third-best scorer in the league. However, their defensive frailties have been exposed at home, conceding goals consistently.

Getafe Inconsistent, But Scoring Regularly

Getafe head into this match following a 1-1 draw against Villarreal. While they haven’t been at their best, they have managed to find the back of the net in seven of their last eight matches across all competitions. This suggests a potential “both teams to score” scenario at Camp Nou.

Head-to-Head Favors Barcelona

Historically, Barcelona has dominated the head-to-head battle against Getafe, boasting a six-match unbeaten streak and three wins in their last six meetings. Notably, they also hold a perfect unbeaten record against Getafe at home. Additionally, three of their last four clashes at Camp Nou saw over 2.5 goals scored and both teams finding the net.

Prediction: Barcelona to Win, Both Teams to Score

Considering Barcelona’s strong offensive line, home advantage, and historical dominance over Getafe, a win for the Blaugrana seems likely. However, their shaky defense suggests Getafe could also find the net. Therefore, “Barcelona to win and both teams to score” appears as the most promising option.

Alternative Bets:

  • Barcelona to score over 2.5 goals: Their recent scoring form at home makes this a tempting alternative.
  • Lewandowski to score anytime: The Polish striker is in red-hot form, making him a good candidate to find the net.
