  • HOME: 2/5 (1.40) – 71.4%

  • AWAY: 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The home team are the very clear favourites according to the Barcelona vs Getafe odds with an implied probability of 71.4% that they win the game and temporarily at least move into 2nd place.

Our betting picks suggest they will do that after a more encouraging display in the 1-1 draw away to Inter in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Getafe meanwhile come into the game after picking up a decent point in the form of a 1-1 draw at Villarreal last weekend in La Liga.

There has only been one goal scored in the last four meetings between Barcelona and Getafe with the South Madrid side often parking the bus and succeeding in disrupting Barca from finding any rhythm.

Our Barcelona vs Getafe prediction suggests this one may be a bit more open though with Getafe playing slightly more expansive stuff this season while Barca games have been raining goals of late.
