📊 Form Guide

Villarreal WWWDWW 📈

Villarreal are hoping to win again after their last result, the 0-2 La Liga triumph over Real Betis.

In that match, Villarreal had 54% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. The only player to score for Villarreal was Gerard Moreno (7', 30'). On the other side, Real Betis got 10 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.

Their most recent results reveal that much respect should be given to the Villarreal defence. El Submarino Amarillo have kept it tight, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous six outings standing at 2.

Analysis of their past results shows that Villarreal:

  • have not beaten FC Barcelona in their last 21 league games. That has got to hurt.
  • have not been beaten in their last 3 home league matches.

Barcelona WWDWDD 📈

In their last fixture, Barcelona drew 2-2 in the La Liga tie with Atlético Madrid.

In that game, Barcelona had 72% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 5 on target. The scorer for Barcelona was Lionel Messi (50'). On the other side, Atlético de Madrid got 10 shots at goal with 3 on target. Diego Costa (11' Own goal) and Saúl Ñíguez (19', 62') scored for Atlético Madrid.

A run of effective showings by the Barcelona defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their last 6 fixtures overall. In that period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 11. That kind of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, of course.

Pre-game facts show that Barcelona:

  • remain unbeaten by Villarreal CF when having played them away from home in the previous 10 league matches. What a record that is.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A study of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 06/05/2017 tells us that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Villarreal. They’ve not managed to get any wins whatsoever whereas Barcelona have been superior, beating them in 83 per cent of those match-ups.

Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 26 in total at an average of 4.33 goals per match.

The previous league meeting between these sides was LaLiga match day 6 on 24/09/2019 which ended up with the score at Barcelona 2-1 Villarreal.

That day, Barcelona managed 57% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. The scorers were Antoine Griezmann (6') and Arthur Melo (15').

Villarreal got 11 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Santi Cazorla (44') was the scorer.

The referee was Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea.

ℹ️ Team News: Villarreal

There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Villarreal boss Javier Calleja to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Ramiro Funes Mori (Achilles tendon problems) misses out.

We think that El Submarino Amarillo should use the 4-4-2 formation, utilising Sergio Asenjo, Alberto Moreno, Pau Francisco Torres, Raul Albiol, Mario Gaspar, Santiago Cazorla, Manu Trigueros, Andre Zambo Anguissa, Samuel Chukwueze, Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcácer.

📋 Team News: Barcelona

Barcelona manager Quique Setién has not got a full squad to pick from. Frenkie de Jong (Muscle Injury) and Ousmane Dembélé (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.

We reckon that Barça seem most likely to elect for a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Piqué, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Riqui Puig, Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann.

💭 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Barcelona should convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.

In contrast, Villarreal could well struggle to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be scoring here as well.

Accordingly, we see a decent 1-3 win for Barcelona when the referee blows the final whistle.
