With four winners from four selections this week, our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides has been in fine form and this evening he is tipping the Catalans to win but concedeBarcelona arrive in the Spanish capital for the second leg of this Copa del Rey last 16 clash with a 4-0 lead. Indeed, the Catalans were comfortably better than Getafe in last week's first leg which will afford them the luxury of being able to rest a few players this evening.
Geta themsleves are on a poor run of form having lost each of their last four matches in all competitions and while there is no chance of them progressing to the quarter finals, they will want to try and salvage some pride.
William Hill offer the Azulones at 10/1 (11.00) while Barcelona can be backed at 1/4 (1.25). A seemingly unlikely draw is available with the same firm at 5/1 (6.00).
The Catalans of course should still be too strong regardless of them fielding a weakened team, and at 4-0 down Getafe boss Luis Garca may well make some changes of his own.
Expect a win for Barcelona then, but it may well come without a clean sheet. Getafe have scored in all but three of their 11 home matches this season, including twice against the blaugrana in their recent league visit.
A Barca win and both teams to score is offered at 8/5 (2.60) with William Hill and looks to be a decent option for a small investment.
This bet has paid out in three of the last four meetings between the two sides, and while a great deal should not be risked on it given that the tie is pretty much already over, it is worthy of some consideration.
