Preview:

Getafe look to have an almost impossible task on their hands when they attempt to become only the second team to beat Barcelona this season. The Catalans are currently joint top of La Liga with Atletico Madrid, and their only defeat came last month when they lost 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao. Getafe are currently 8th in La Liga with 23 points, and chasing Europa League qualification.

Barcelona defeated Getafe 6-1 at the Camp Nou in February on their way to winning the league title. In the corresponding fixture to this one, they won 4-1 at Getafe´s Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez last September, with Adriano, Lionel Messi (2) and David Villa grabbing the goals. Villa now plays for Atletico and Messi is out injured, but new signing Neymar has been creating havoc, ex-Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas has stepped up to the plate and Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez has found his scoring boots, so it would seem Getafe can expect more of the same.

Barcelona have scored at least four goals in their last three games against Getafe, and to win 4-1 again are best priced at 21/1. 

Neymar is favorite to start the scoring at 3/1, with Fabregas at 9/2.

Of course, despite the fact that Barca are top of La Liga, and despite the fact that they have a squad of players that are the envy of any team on the planet, they still have not been 100% this season. New coach “Tata” Martino has attempted to change the style of play and ideology of the team in the wake of their Champions League humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich last season, resulting in some less than impressive performances.

It is the “Tata” factor that gives teams like Getafe hope. The Madrid side have a solid home record of four wins and just two losses from their eight games, with just seven goals conceded, a figure only bettered by Barcelona and Atletico. In their last La Liga home game they beat Levante 1-0, and midweek they demolished Segunda Division side Verona 4-1 in the Copa del Rey.

If Getafe can keep a tight back four and attacking midfielder and top scorer Pedro Leon plays with his customary verve, an upset could be on the cards.
