Our match prediction:
Saturday’s match at Camp Nou pits together Barcelona and Getafe, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. The Catalan giants are enjoying yet another successful season and they are on the right track to defend the domestic trophy. Barca look unstoppable at the moment and they are widely expected to extend their winning run in the national championship to twelve matches. The good news for Luis Enrique is that Brazilian ace returns from suspension and considering that the out-of-sorts Azulones struggle on the travels, we believe that the Catalans will record a routine win over the capital club. In their last meeting at Camp Nou Barca demolished Getafe 6-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself on Saturday night. It has to be noted that Getafe conceded 3+ goals in each of their last four away games in La Liga.
