class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The side from the Spanish capital have never claimed victory at Camp Nou and that winless streak looks set to continue when they visit this week
Barcelona welcome Getafe to Camp Nou on Thursday evening in La Liga with Ronald Koeman’s side aiming for a win to keep their title push going.
The Blaugrana are five points behind leaders Atletico Madrid but with a game in hand and will be hoping to build on the success of winning the Copa del Rey at the weekend by keeping the pressure on the table-toppers.
Getafe, for their part, claimed a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid on Sunday and Jose Bordalas’ men recorded a victory against Barca when they faced them earlier this season.

Getafe are without defender Erick Cabaco and forward Cucho Hernandez through injury, while Allan Nyom is suspended following his 10th yellow card of the season against Real Madrid.
Barcelona vs Getafe Preview
Getafe head to Camp Nou as La Liga’s lowest scoring side, having managed just 22 goals in 31 matches.
Bordalas’ men will be buoyed by the point they picked up against Real Madrid on Sunday night, but even when facing a Los Blancos side absolutely decimated by injuries, Getafe failed to find the back of the net.
Indeed, Los Azulones’ only goal in their last five matches came at home to relegation-threatened Elche and they have only scored in five of their 14 away matches this term.
Barca have not kept a huge number of clean sheets during the current campaign but there should certainly be plenty of interest in them keeping a lacklustre visiting attack at bay.
Barcelona vs Getafe Tips and Predictions
Barca to win to nil is priced at 10/11 (1.91) and looks like the best way to back a home victory at an attractive price.
