With their off-season marred by all sorts of off-the-pitch fracas, Barcelona look like a side in crisis at the moment. After managing to keep hold of their maestro Lionel Messi, Barca can now look forward to the new season as they attempt reclaiming the league title.

Meanwhile, Villarreal had a wonderful experience last season, playing really well to finish fifth on the standings. Having now made their return to the top-six mix, the Yellow Submarines will be bent on breaching top-four this time around.

Barcelona vs Villarreal Team News

Where do we even begin to explain Barcelona’s problems? They are simply innumerable. Over the last few years, voices have been raised concerning the board’s handling of the club’s affairs, as they do not seem to have a progressive agenda.

Argentine forward Lionel Messi even slammed Barca’s director Eric Abidal, claiming that the Frenchman didn’t have the club’s best interest at heart. The club immediately acted by relieving Abidal of his duties.

However, things really began to go downhill at the Catalan club after their humbling 8-2 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. That shambolic display exposed the Blaugrana’s weak squad, showing they had to get rid of several deadwood.

Following the defeat, club legend Lionel Messi decided to call time on his stay at the Nou Camp. While attempting the trigger a clause that will terminate his contract this summer, Barca refused to let him go, reiterating that the clause was already void.

With no other option left, Messi made a U-turn, choosing to run down his Barcelona contract to leave the club next year. You can only wonder what will become of Barca when the six-time Balon d’Or winner exits. 

Before then, Barcelona will hope to enjoy the miniature midfielder for the next year, at the least. There have been a whole lot of departures this summer, with Suarez, Rakitic, Arthur, Vidal and Semedo shipped off to other clubs as Barca plan an overhaul.

The Blaugrana are now sporting a depleted squad and we do not know what to expect from them this season. From their pre-season games, they have looked pretty decent, seeing off Girona 3-1 before lifting the Joan Gamper trophy after a 1-0 victory over Elche.

This weekend’s opposition, Villarreal have begun their season on a strong note. After playing out a one-all draw against Huesca on the opening weekend, the Yellow Submarine went on to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Eibar.

Still unbeaten this season, Emery’s men will take their game to Camp Nou this Sunday as they look to extend their unbeaten run to three on the bounce. Surely, they have what it takes to make this a reality.

Who will win the match?

Barcelona vs Villarreal Predictions

Having played two league games so far, Villarreal have more minutes in their tank. This will likely give them an edge over Barcelona who have not played a competitive game for some time now.

That said, Barcelona have a terrific record over the Yellow Submarine and are likely to see this game out. Expect Messi on the scoresheet as Barca get their season off to a flyer.
