Barcelona will be looking to secure second place in the La Liga table after their trip to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez to face Getafe. In front of an opponent who is in low form and is also a good prey in the past. The Catalan giants will not be difficult to extend the winning streak to 4.
Getafe’s position in La Liga is still not guaranteed because mathematically, the Coliseum Alfonso Perez home team is still in danger of relegation. Specifically, after 36 matches Getafe won 8, drew 14 and also received 14 defeats. With 38 points and the current 15th position, Getafe is 5 points ahead of the group holding the red light and the tournament has only 2 matches left. Therefore, it will be a big surprise if they are relegated from this position. Of course, to make sure to stay in La Liga, Getafe will need to aim for a victory in the welcome Barcelona.
That will be a very difficult goal for Getafe, in the context that this team is having problems in terms of form. Coach Sanchez Flores’ team drew in the last 3 rounds in a row, so Getafe only won 2 of their last 10 matches. After 18 home matches, Getafe won 7, drew 6 and lost 5. Thus, the number of points that Getafe got on the nest was completely overwhelming in the trips away from home.
The start of the season was extremely bad, but Barcelona promptly got up under coach Xavi. With a record of 21 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses, Barcelona is currently firmly in second place in the rankings. Despite having to see great rival Real Madrid take the throne, but at least Barcelona still has tickets to next season’s Champions League. Now Barcelona need a win to be sure to finish in second place, because they are only 5 points ahead of Atl Madrid.
Barcelona will wrap up this season’s La Liga campaign at home to Villarreal on May 22. Barcelona have the second-best record of their trips in La Liga this season, picking up 34 points from 18 matches. Specifically, after 18 away matches, coach Xavi’s team won 9, drew 7 and lost 2. In terms of performance, Barcelona won the last 11/13 matches in La Liga.
