Barcelona will look to end 2013 top of the La Liga table and Getafe should prove no obstacle to the Catalans, according to our Spanish tipster
Indeed, two seasons ago, Geta recorded a 1-0 win over the Catalans and Paddy Power price another win for the home side at 6/1 (7.00) while Barca can be backed at 4/9 (1.44).
Getafe can often be stubborn opponents at home yet Barca should be able to break down the Azulones defence, which has kept just one clean sheet in their last five league games and conceded seven at Atletico Madrid a few weeks ago.
Messi may be missing, as well as Neymar, but punters should always be confident of backing Barca to score goals and the price of 7/5 (2.40) for them to score three or more is eye-catching.
The likes of Fabregas, Pedro and Alexis Sanchez have proven themselves more than capable of chipping in with goals recently and, if they get their opportunites, this could be an extremely comfortable win.
This bet has paid out 14 times already this season in all competitions and the simple truth is that Barcelona do not even need to be at their best to score three times against Getafe - despite their lengthy list of absentees.
The price is an attractive one and this looks like an interesting selection for a small investment at odds against with Paddy Power.
