Getafe is welcoming Barcelona to Coliseum Alfonso Perez in round 6 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Getafe has been playing hot and cold so far this season, but they are in 7th place in the standings with 7 points. In the 4 games Getafe has played, they have 2 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss, alongside 4 scored goals and 3 conceded goals. In their latest LaLiga match, Getafe was playing against Real Sociedad on the road, and they were the weaker team with 47% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 4 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and low 63% of the correct passes. Getafe didn’t have a good day on either end, and they have lost this match 3-0. Rodriguez has scored 2 goals for Getafe so far this season, while Cucurella and Mata added 1 goal each. Hernandez has added 2 assists for Getafe. There are no injured players in Getafe as of right now, but Ndiaye is still questionable. After ending the last season just outside the Europa League spot, Getafe is hoping to accomplish that this season and they are doing well for now, but Getafe will need to get their defense in order. When they do that, their offense will start producing more chances because there will be no pressure on them.
Barcelona is still finding their form, but they haven’t lost any of their 3 LaLiga games so far. In their first two games, Barcelona has scored 7 goals while conceding 0 goals, and they have won both games, while they had a tougher time in their third game against Sevilla at home. Barcelona has had 54% of ball possession in that match, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Barcelona conceded a sloppy goal in the 8th minute, but Coutinho tied the score in the 10th minute. Both teams had a few good chances until the end, but the score hasn’t changed again, and this game ended in a 1-1 draw. Barcelona is in 5th place in the standings at the moment with 7 points, 8 scored goals, and 1 conceded goal. Barcelona also has the best offense in defense in this early LaLiga season. Fati has scored 3 goals for Barcelona so far, and he is in excellent form, while Messi, Coutinho, and Roberto added 1 goal each. Coutinho has also added 2 assists, while Alba added 1 more assist. Umtiti is injured, while Ter Stegen is close to recovery. Fernandes and Firpo are still questionable for this match. Barcelona is getting Lenglet back for this game, while Griezmann has had a good time while playing for France in the Nations League. After the whole soap opera with Messi in the offseason, he is still finding his form, and it’s only a matter of time before he starts scoring and assisting for more goals. I like Barcelona under the new head coach so far, and I think we can expect great things from Barcelona this season.
The trends are heavily on Barcelona’s side in this match, and Getafe hasn’t won any of their last 4 games against Barcelona. Barcelona hasn’t lost any of their last 6 games, and they are on a 4-game winning streak on the road. Barcelona is playing better soccer here, and they have more depth and quality on the bench. I will side with Barcelona on the road.
