Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Primera División. La Liga.
The leader of the championship Barcelona is facing rather hard away match in the Madrid metropolitan area in frames of the 18th matchday of La Liga. Coliseum Alfonso Pérez will become arena for the match between Getafe and Barcelona.
The Deep Blues have shown good fight in the previous matches against Barcelona: there was recorded a goalless draw and two hard wins of the Catalans – 2:1 and 2:0. That was true when Getafe was a simple mid level team without any special claims.
Technically, the Blues won’t be ready to participate actively for the whole distance of the current season but now the team really makes good impression.
The 7th line, only 4 losses and extremely reliable defense. Only defense line of Atlético makes the less number of mistakes and this doesn’t surprise anyone.
But the attack doesn’t impress at all. 18 scored goals only. And it is only 1 goal more than Villarreal and Rayo Vallecano (the teams being in the relegation zone) have.
This result can’t be compared with the achievements of Barcelona that has scored already its 48th goal.
Of course, the guests have more chances to win and will almost definitely win, but don’t wait for the large number of scored goals in this match.
First of all, Getafe has missed only 4 goals on home arena and secondly, there were not scored more than 3 goals in 8 previous home matches of the Deep Blues. It is likely, that such situation will repeat now.
