An In-Depth Look at the Match
Here are our top Barcelona v Getafe betting tips. We are into the penultimate round of fixtures from the Spanish top-flight with all matches taking place at 5.30pm on Sunday. This promises to be a thrilling outing and the fact it doesn’t clash with any of the live domestic action will ensure a larger than usual following. Barcelona are already over the line and confirmed as champions – they have been for quite some time – but there’s still prizes and positions to be won right throughout the division. Who will be the main winners and losers of the day? Will Barca accept their trophy with a home win?
The locals must dust themselves down following that incredible defeat away to Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday night. The La Liga kings had one foot in the final following a convincing win over The Reds at the Camp Nou, but no one expected what was to come next. Liverpool scored three goals before the hour to make things interesting and they got the winner, taking them through, on 79 minutes. Barcelona and their fans were left shell-shocked, as were most neutrals watching the drama unfold. A home win is 4/9 at Bet365.
Getafe Clinging On
Barcelona may not have anything to play for here, other than pride, but their opponents have a job on their hands to cling on to fourth place and the one remaining Champions League slot. Qualification for Europe’s premier tournament would have been almost unthinkable back in the summer, but Getafe are now within touching distance of the big bucks. They sit three points and three goals ahead of Valencia going into the day, meaning all eyes will be on this match. Getafe require at least a draw to stay in the lead, but they need it against a bear with a sore head.
The visitors have finished the season strongly, winning two and drawing two of their last five. They suffered a mixed bag in their three most recent outings, however, drawing 0-0 with Real Madrid, losing 2-1 away to Real Sociedad in a shock result, before making a welcome return to winning ways when beating Girona 2-0 at home last weekend. They are so close to a stunning season the players can almost touch it. Bookies offer the draw at 18/5 (William Hill), an away win 6/1 (Ladbrokes). Sit back and enjoy what will be a cracker.
