Two points from their final two matches will be enough to secure second place in La Liga for Barcelona. They will be away to Getafe in their second last game of the season. Going into this game Barcelona are second in the league standings with 72 points while Getafe are 15th on 38 points. Getafe needs two points from their final two games to confirm their safety and a win here will sort all that out. However, they have just two wins in their last 10 matches and against Barcelona it will be an uphill task. They’ve drawn each of the last three games and in three of the last five matches at home, they’ve failed to score. Getafe have one win in six home matches. In matches against Barcelona, Getafe have managed one win only in the last seven.
Getafe is not a team that Barcelona has had a lot of trouble facing; they have six wins in the last seven meetings with Getafe. Barcelona have turned on the style after their shock defeat by Rayo Vallecano and they’ve scored two or more goals in each of the last three matches. However, they have no clean sheet in the last four matches, while in the last five, they’ve failed to score in one. Barcelona have eight wins in 10 matches in La Liga, the most recent a 3-1 win over Celta Vigo and they will be favorites to extend the same here. They particularly have a fine away run, going into this game with six straight wins in the league and they are unbeaten in their last 14 league games played away from home.
Barcelona are outright favorites in this game and they’ve dominated in the past meetings too. We don’t expect it any different as they face off again, with Getafe struggling at home, while Barcelona have done well away in the league. Go for Barcelona to lead in both halves.
