Getafe vs Barcelona
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15 May 2022
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Barcelona need just one more win to confirm themselves as the runners-up of the league. And after an year of setbacks and challenges they will be eager to put the matter to end, and to call themselves as the best in Spain at least after Real Madrid.
It also needs to be mentioned that their form is improved after they posted a series of below-par results. They are once again winning, and are also finding the back of the net with ease.
Meanwhile Getafe are placed 15th in a table of 20 and they still have not mathematically ensured their safety. They are placed just 5 points about the relegation cut off and with two fixtures remaining, they still can be demoted to the lower division.
While it is a long shot, there has been nothing that the team can find confidence from this season, and this is an area that needs to be addressed by the squad.
They have also been conceding goals quite consistently and most importantly they have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
Taking into account these observations, anticipate a win for the Catalans this weekend.
Getafe were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day by Osasuna. They are also on a 3-game winless run, and had remained so in 11 of their past 13 overall fixtures.
On the other hand, the Catalans won 3-1 at home the past game week against Celta Vigo. Note that they are also on a 3-fixture winning streak, and had scored 2 or more goals in these 3 matchups.
Moreover, they had won 8 of their last 9 road trips and the last they lost on the road was back in the first week of December, against Bayern Munich Champions League.
Taking into account these observations as well as the head-to-head superiority of Barca over the years, expect a convincing win for them this Sunday.
