After this Sunday, club football will be paused for the first time of the season. But first they will play a busy last day, including in Spain. The schedule for the second weekend here will start with the Camp Nou, where Barcelona and Getafe will play. Will the guests from Madrid be able to trip the Catalans? The site’s journalists posted a detailed forecast for this match on August 29, 2021. More information on the match can be found at 1xbet official website.
Barcelona is so far more preoccupied with what happens off the pitch
“Blue Garnet” were left not only without Messi – now there is no need to pay the huge salary of the cult footballer. But even the elimination of this burden does not solve all the problems of “more than a club”. It is necessary to sell and release more, and the players led by Umtiti do not want to leave the “warm” places with considerable salaries. So it turns out that they are fighting with some, persuading others to leave, and agreeing on a reduction in salaries with others. It is not strange that in such conditions Athletic was able to take a draw with a grand – rather surprising is the 4-2 victory with a strong Real Sociedad, also with a benefit from Martin Bretwaite.
Getafe is already in the La Liga relegation zone
The Blues showed regression last season. And in general, the club that recently played in the Europa League playoffs parted with their coach, Pepe Bordalas. It was hoped that his successor would be able to shake up the team, however, the persona of Michel Gonzalez at the same time aroused suspicion. This legendary football player for Real Madrid did not succeed as a coach either in Getafe, or in Seville, or in Malaga, and abroad (Olympiacos and Marseille), he was not remembered for anything bright. At the new place of work, the specialist began with “dry” lesions. Moreover, Valencia won in the 1st round, despite the removal of Gilliamon already in the 3rd minute (although, closer to the end, Cabaco equalized the lineups). Against Sevilla on Monday, Getafe tried to play in the style of yesteryear, on defense. And the club did not reach the final whistle quite a bit: Lamela opened the scoring already in the 76th minute.
Since 2012 Barcelona have been developing their unbeaten run against Getafe. But in the last championship at home, the Blues were able to win the meeting 1-0. True, then, in April, it was 5-2 at the “Camp Nou”. Messi did 2 + 1 in that match …
The case when Barcelona simply cannot lose. We bet on the home team to win with a “-1 goal” handicap (odds – 1.66).
