Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365

In what is a battle at the top of the La Liga table, a high-flying Getafe will make the trip to the Nou Camp on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Barcelona may have managed to snatch a dramatic 3-2 win away at Real Betis last weekend, the reigning champions have shown some signs of inconsistency. Still sat three points adrift of Real Madrid and top spot, Head Coach Quique Setién is desperate for his side to find some much-needed stability at the back. Shipping a pair of goals on the road last time out, fans around the Nou Camp have seen their side land just a sole La Liga clean sheet since the 18th of December. Even more worrying for Saturday’s hosts, Barcelona have managed to record just a pair of clean sheets at the Nou Camp since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.

As for the visitors, putting in what could be a season-best display in their thumping 3-0 win over Valencia last week, few across Spain would have expected what has been a stellar campaign for Getafe. Now finding themselves sat third in the table and with an astonishing Champions League finish on their agenda, the Blues find themselves enjoying a four-match winning run and have a growing reputation for their performances on the road. Including picking up back-to-back victories away at Athletic Bilbao and Leganes, the La Liga high-flyers have won four of their last six top-tier matches away from the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
