Barcelona travel to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday evening to face Getafe in their first match of 2019.

Ernesto Valverde's men ended the year top of the table having won all four league games they contested in December, whilst Getafe have shown themselves to be stubborn opponents and Pepe Bordalas' side begin the year in a highly creditable seventh position.

Latest odds

Getafe have suffered just one defeat in their last 11 competitive matches and 888Sport price them at 13/2 (7.50) to claim their fifth home win of the season. Barcelona can be backed at 2/5 (1.40) with the draw available at 21/5 (5.20).

Team news

Amath Ndiaye, Getafe

Barcelona will travel to the Spanish capital without Samuel Umtiti, Thomas Vermaelen and Rafinha. The rest of the squad is fit however and Valverde now has options at centre-back with the arrival of new signing Jeison Murillo.

Getafe are missing winger Amath Ndiaye, who is out for the rest of the season, while Markel Bergara is remains out with a fractured arm.

Preview

The last game between these two sides saw Getafe claim a point at the Camp Nou with a 0-0 draw last February.

Los Azulones will be hopeful of causing the Blaugrana more problems, and their defensive record will give them confidence as they try to tame the most prolific attack in the division.

Getafe's tally of 13 goals conceded in 17 matches is bettered only by Atletico Madrid, while their total of four goals conceded at home is bettered only by Real Madrid.

Only one of the Geta's last 13 home league matches has seen over 2.5 goals and there could be a strong argument to be made for opposing a high scoring encounter on Sunday.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score 'no' is priced at evens (2.00) and that looks an excellent option, with this selection paying out in five of the last six meetings between these two sides.

It has also proved profitable in each of Getafe's last nine home league clashes as well as in Barca's last four La Liga matches. Also worthy of consideration is backing under 2.5 goals at 6/4 (2.50)
