The Match Is Over. Score: 1-4
Villarreal vs Barcelona PredictionGetting their season off to a flying start, Barcelona looked set for yet another league triumph. As soon as the campaign kicked-off, they were quickly off the blocks, grinding out positive results week in week out, to send themselves clear at the top of the standings.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 34
Kick-off:
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal)
With Coutinho, Messi, Griezmann and Suarez ticking on and off-the-pitch, the sky looked the limit for this rampant Barca side. They never seemed fazed by any opposition, romping through the first-half of the term very comfortably.

Their dominance was helped by the horrific displays of arch-rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid as both clubs from the capital failed to hit the ground running early on. However, at the turn of the year, affairs at the Nou Camp went south.

The Blaugrana started blowing hot and cold, struggling to secure maximum points on a regular basis. Unfortunately, this dip in form coincided with Real Madrid’s resurgence. In the twinkle of an eye, Los Blancos had usurped them to the top of the log.

Now four points adrift the league summit, the league title seems some way off Barcelona’s reach. Nonetheless, they will keep putting the work in over the coming weeks to close-in on Madrid, starting with a win against top-four hopefuls Villarreal on Sunday night.

Villarreal vs Barcelona Team News

Serial bottom-half outfits Villarreal have turned a corner this season and are even gunning for a Champions League place finish. Just three points adrift the final top-four spot, the Yellow Submarines are well in the picture for qualification for Europe’s elite competition.

Scheduled to take on Real Betis on the last match-day, Villarreal set their sights on all three points as they headed out of the tunnel of the Benito Villamarin Stadium. Already tagged favorites for the win, the onus was on Calleja’s charges to safely deliver the three points.

Dominating proceedings throughout the game, Villarreal ensured Los Verdiblancos were comfortably dispatched. Moreno was the top of the pile, registering two goals to send his side ever closer to a top-four finish.

Having been enduring a recent rough patch, Barcelona needed to steady the ship with the season drawing to a close. Real Madrid racing to the title, the Blaugrana could not afford any slip-ups when they took on rejuvenated side Atletico Madrid last time out.

In a game marred with fouls and controversies, Barcelona were forced home with a point as Los Rojiblancos held them to a 2-2 draw. Saul’s late equalizer was a cause for serious debate as replays showed the referee was in the wrong to have awarded a penalty.

Now, Barcelona are brutally wounded. Despite giving their all in the previous two games, they have been forced home with a single point in the bag on both occasions. Surely, Messi will be itching to get on the pitch once again to get his side back on the winning track.

Barca will not have it easy against this Villarreal side that have recorded only three defeats in 16 home games so far.
