Barcelona - Getafe

Asian Handicap
Pick: Barcelona -1.5
Odds: 1.82
Stake: 1

Match date: 22/04/2021

Following a great Copa del Rey Final win over Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona will head into this tie with sky-high confidence and I expect them to build on that performance.

This is a vital game for Barca, especially after the defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico which allowed their rivals to move ahead of them in the league table. Barcelona, though, do have a game in hand and a win against Getafe could leave them just two points behind league leaders Atletico  and Real Madrid. Winning the title depends only on Barça because if they win all the remaining 8 games they win the title regardless of what happens with everyone else.

Since the beginning of the year Barca has been in great form and their nbeaten run this year came to an end last week as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to rival Real Madrid in El Clasico, butBarca quickly bounced back from this loss and the great win against Bilbao in the final showed that Barca was not affected too much by that loss.

On the other hand we have Getafe who currently occupy 15th position in the league standings with 31 points from 31 games.

Getafe’s form since the beginning of the year has been not good and Jose Bordalas’ men have picked up just three wins in 17 games since the turn of the year. This has contributed to the position that Getafe in the remaining matches will fight to avoid relegation since just five points separate them and the relegation zone.

Despite their position in the table, Getafe has shown good performances against the giants of the league. Last match they held Real to 0-0 draw and they had some really good chances to surprise Real. They also held Atletico to a draw some weeks ago and have beaten Barca by 1-0 in the first match.

Their defense is doing good job, but their attack is very week. They have scored just 22 goals in the league this season, which is the joint-fewest alongside basement side Eibar, and they have only scored once in their last five fruitless away games. That is the reason why they have registered just one win in last 13 games.

For this match Getafe will miss Dario Poveda, Cucho and Erick Cabaco as they are sidelined with injuries while Nyom is suspended.

To sum up, after securing the cup, Barcelona will now focus on La Liga, where they are in a heated race with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid for the title. I expect a fully focused Barca in this game and when they are at their best it is very hard for any team to stop them. I expect a win tonight and hopefully it covers the handicap as well.

    What a game Messi is having. 2 goals before HT.
    3-1 score at HT, probably Barcelona would win this. The title race si getting exciting game by game. All 3 teams can win. No one can confidently say who can win.
    Nice to see La Liga being this much competitive
