Barcelona and Getafe will face each other in La Liga this weekend. The match between the Blaugrana and the Azulones will take place at Camp Nou and is scheduled to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Sunday.

Barcelona

Barcelona are doing extremely well at the moment. The former La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners had a disappointing time last season, but things have changed for the better this time around. True, Xavi’s side were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League at the knockout stage this season, but in the league, they are going from strength to strength.

The Blaugrana are at the top of the La Liga table at the moment with 41 points from 16 matches. Barcelona are three points ahead of second-placed and bitter rivals Real Madrid, who won the La Liga title last season. They are also six points clear of Real Sociedad, who are currently third and have played 17 matches.

Barcelona will take on AD Ceuta FC away from home in the Copa dey Rey on Thursday evening. Xavi’s team beat Real Madrid 3-1 in the final of the Spanish Super Cup last weekend. It came after a win against Real Betis in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup. In their last La Liga match, Barcelona edged past Atletico Madrid 1-0.

Team News:

Ronald Araujo and Frenkie De Jong will be back in action for Barcelona against Getafe after being rested against  AD Ceuta FC. Netherlands international forward Memphis Depay could stay out of action again due to personal reasons.

Getafe

Getafe are an established club in La Liga who tend to finish in mid-table or roundabout that. No one expects them to do great things, and they generally tend to finish in a comfortable position in La Liga and stay in the league. The Azulones have finished 15th in the league table in the last two seasons, ended up eighth in La Liga in 2019-20 and finished fifth in the league in 2018-19. They clinched the eighth spot in the La Liga table in the 2017-18 on their return to the top flight after relegation the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

At the moment, Getafe are 15th in the La Liga table. They have picked up 17 points from 17 matches, just a point above the relegation zone. Things are not going well for Quique Sánchez Flores’s side at the moment, and they are in real danger of getting relegated to the Segunda Division at the end of the season.

Getafe will head into the match against Barcelona at Camp Nou in La Liga this weekend on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Espanyol at home in the league. It followed a 2-1 loss to Sevilla on the road in the leaue.

Team News:

Mauro Arambarri could be on the sidelines again. Stefan Mitrovic, Jordan Amavi and Nemanja Maksimovic could start for Getafe against Barcelona at Camp Nou in La Liga this weekend. Borja Mayoral could play alongside Enes Unal in attack.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Barcelona have lost 1 La Liga match all season.
  • Getafe have won 4 La Liga matches all season.
  • Barcelona have conceded 6 goals in La Liga so far this campaign.
  • Getafe have scored 16 goals in La Liga so far campaign.
  • Robert Lewandowski has scored 13 goals and given 4 assists for Barcelona in La Liga so far this season.

Conclusion

Getafe are not having the best of times at the moment, and it is hard to see them win against Barcelona at Camp Nou this weekend or even pick up a point. Barcelona have been the best team in La Liga so far this season and have the meanest defence. It is hard to see anything but a convincing win for Xavi’s side in this particular league match at Camp Nou.

Prediction: Barcelona to win 4-0

Best Odds: 9/1
