Villarreal vs Barcelona Predictions

  • Villarreal had the fourth-best home record in La Liga last season, winning 12 of their 19 matches at the Estadio de la Ceramica
  • Barcelona have dropped points in five of their last six away contests in La Liga
  • Both teams scored in 11 of Villarreal’s 19 home games in the league last term

Lack of firepower evident for Barcelona

Barcelona finished ten points clear at the summit of La Liga last season but they have made a modest start to the new campaign and punters should not rush to back them on the road to Villarreal.

After an opening 0-0 draw with Getafe, Barca edged past Cadiz 2-0 last time out but only courtesy of goals from Pedri and Ferran Torres in the 82nd and 94th minutes.

There is a noticeable lack of goalscoring firepower in the Catalan club’s ranks with Ousmane Dembele’s departure putting pressure on Robert Lewandowski up top.

This weekend Barca will be without Raphinha, Pedri and Ronald Araujo and they could be vulnerable against the Yellow Submarine.

Villarreal tough to overcome on home soil

Villarreal were stung in their opener by a 95th-minute winner from Willian Jose, who led Real Betis to a 2-1 win, but they got back on their feet with a 1-0 win over Mallorca last Friday.

They are a tough nut to crack at the Estadio de la Ceramica, winning 12 of their 19 league matches there last season, and they are worth a bet to avoid defeat.

In terms of a correct score, neither side have clicked into gear yet and a 1-1 draw could be the way to go for those expecting the teams to share the spoils.
