Getafe vs Barcelona betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

Barcelona have won six of their last seven meetings with Getafe, the exception being a 1-0 defeat at the Coliseum last season. Barça have scored 58 goals in their last 20 matches against the Azulones. 

Barcelona to win and over 2.5 goals is 9/4.

Barcelona to win and both teams to score is 3/1. 

Match preview

Will Barcelona continue their strong away form under Xavi?

Since the change of management, Barça are unbeaten on the road in La Liga, winning nine of 14 outings, drawing the other five.

This includes last Saturday night's 2-1 victory over Real Betis at Estadio Benito Villamarín, thanks to Jordi Alba's stunning last-gasp volley.

Then, on Tuesday, the Blaugrana easily beat Celta Vigo 3-1 with Memphis breaking the deadlock and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring a brace.

The Gabonese striker ending his mini-goal draught.

So, Barça have now secured Champions League qualification, needing a point to wrap up second which'll see them return to next year's Supercopa.

Getafe meanwhile, despite losing their first seven matches, and not winning until Halloween, are almost safe from relegation.

On Wednesday, they came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Osasuna at El Sadar, earning the point courtesy of an own goal.

Thus, having only lost two of their last nine, Quique Sánchez Flores' team have 38 points, which should be enough to see them retain their La Liga status.

Will it be a night of celebration at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, or will Barça be too strong?

Getafe team news

Stefan Mitrović's red card against Osasuna on Wednesday means he is suspended.

Thus, Damián Suárez or Okay Yokuşlu are likely to come in, completing the back five.

Nemanja Maksimović and Mauro Arambarri will need to be at their best as the defensive midfield duo, alongside Carles Aleñá who'll face his former club.

Enes Ünal will lead the line, looking to add to his 15 goals so far this season.

Barcelona team news

Ansu Fati came off the bench to score at Real Betis last weekend before seeing another 26 minutes of action on Tuesday.

Xavi picked a front four for that match, featuring Ferran Torres, Memphis, Ousmane Dembélé and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

However, in a much tougher game away from home, one of these, most likely Memphis, might drop out.

Although, with midfield options limited, this might not be the case.

Sergio Busquets is back from suspension but Frenkie de Jong is unavailable after being booked against Celta Vigo.

Meanwhile, Nico and Pedri are both injured so, if Xavi wants a midfield trio, Busquets and Gavi will be joined by forgotten man Riqui Puig.

In defence, Gerard Piqué and Sergiño Dest are injured, while Jordi Alba and Eric García are out due to yellow card accumulation.

Thus, a makeshift back four is set to feature Dani Alves, Óscar Mingueza, Clément Lenglet and Ronald Araújo.

On of the last three, probably Mingueza, will fill-in at left-back.
