Barcelona vs. Getafe Match Analysis and Prediction

After letting off a three-point lead to rivals Real Madrid in La Liga, Barcelona will be looking to redeem themselves as they welcome side Getafe at Camp Nou. The match schedules for 15th February with kickoff at 18:00 GMT.

The reigning La Liga championships recovered twice from a goal behind in their 3-2 win over Real Betis in a back t back match. Despite the hard-fought win, the Catalans were passed by Loos Blancos, who registered a fifth consecutive win in the league.

Following their surprise exit from the Copa del Rey at the hands of Athletico Bilbao, the Catalans received a week’s rest before taking on in-form side Getafe who are currently third place in the La Liga.

The last week was full of controversies over comments by talisman Lionel Messi comments as a backlash against the director’s Abidal comments. The back and forth has bridged a gap between management and the player. However, things have to cool off with Coach Setien taking a back seat from the drama.

Coach Bordalas is currently enjoying this La Liga season with a number of motivating performances.  The side manages to register four wins in their last five league matches with 42 points. However, there is a tough challenge taking on the Catalans, especially given their long history.
