Getafe v Barcelona Preview, Copa del Rey, Thursday 16th January 2014

Getafe were destroyed 0-4 in the 1st Leg played at the Nou Camp last week and that defeat has pretty much put them out of this competition as it looks highly unlikely that they can turn that deficit around as with Barcelona now having their star player Lionel Messi back from injury, the visitors should at least get one during this game which would then put the game way beyond the reach of the host’s

However, if the Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino decides to rest some of his key players for this game and if Getafe were to get an early goal then there might be a little hope for the hosts, although this does look a very unlikely event.

Getafe Team News:

No reported injuries or suspensions for the hosts, so expect manager Luis Garcia to play his strongest lineup available which should include the clubs top goalscorer Pedro Leon looking to add more goals to his tally.

Barcelona Team News:

Johnathan dos Santos and Oier Olazabal are the only two players currently unavailable for the visitors as both continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems. Lionel Messi could be rested for this game having recently returned from injury, but it is more than likely that he will play some part of this game much to the dismay of the Getafe defence.

Getafe v Barcelona Head to Head Statistics:

Thursday night’s game from the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez will become the 23rd meeting between the two clubs over the years of which Getafe have won 3 (3 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez) with Barcelona having won 16 (7 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez) and the remaining 3 matches having finished all square (1 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez).

The last 5 meetings between the two clubs in our head to head statistics table below, shows having had a commanding advantage having won all 5 matches with Getafe only managing to score just 4 times compared to Barcelona having scored 23.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

72 Goals have been scored in the previous 22 matches between the two clubs which provides us with an overall goals per game statistic of 3.27 and with 35 goals having been scored at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in 11 matches played we are provided with an average goals per game statistic of 3.18 which seems to suggest that we are likely to see plenty of goals in this one.

Getafe v Barcelona Recent Form (Left to Right)

Barcelona: W W W W D

Barcelona have the clear advantage on the recent form statistics having managed to win 4 of their previous 5 matches played and remaining unbeaten. Getafe have had a torid time of it during their last 5 matches of which they have won just 1 and lost the other 4.

Getafe v Barcelona Match Betting Odds Market

Getafe were completely outplayed last week at the Nou Camp in the first leg match, it does seem this tie is over even before it has began for Luis Garcia’s side. So no real shock or surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up at odds of 10/1 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this game.

The Draw has been a very rare outcome when these two clubs have met each other over the years, with just 3 of the previous 22 matches having finished all square and even at a current best price of 5/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) it doesn’t look likley to attract much support.

Barcelona have their talisman back up front and even if he doesn’t play any part of this match it’s still difficult to see Barcelona not winning this game as they have such a clear advantage over their hosts that goes back many years, but their current odds of price of 2/7 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) is no value at all here.

Getafe v Barcelona Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This looks a pretty straight forward outcome here with Barcelona expected to carry on their domination over Getafe and win this game in comfortable fashion once again. The hosts do seem to put up a bit more of a fight when having home advantage and have managed to score in the last four matches played at home against Barcelona over the years, so Both Teams to Score YES which is currently a best price of 8/11 with Ladbrokes (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) could see some action here.

It’s not certain if Lionel Messi will play any part of this match let alone start, but if he does then I would expect plenty of people to be on him to score the first goal and even grab a brace like he did in the first leg last week.

Looking at the more recent meetings between the two clubs over the years, we do see that Barcelona have managed to score a minimum of 4 goals in each of the last 5 matches and with Getafe likely to maybe grab at least one the Over 3.5 Goals at a current best price of 4/5 with Sky Bet (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) looks an interesting option.

However, for me Barcelona on the Asian Handicap should provide some decent value and if they can repeat what they have done against Getafe over the last few season’s then this should be a comfortable winner come the full time whistle.
