Villarreal vs FC Barcelona: Predictions and Betting Tips
- Three wins, one draw, and one defeat for Villarreal in their last five home games
- Villarreal have only conceded one goal in their last three games
- Three draws and two defeats for FC Barcelona in their last five away games in La Liga Santander
- FC Barcelona have conceded seven goals in their last five away games in La Liga Santander
After drawing 1-1 in their last league game against Celta, in a match in which Villarreal had many chances to win the game, Villarreal are looking for the three points against an FC Barcelona side that is more beatable than ever.
With three wins, two draws, and one defeat in six games at La Ceramica, Villarreal are currently the ninth best home side in the competition, having played fewer games than some of the teams above them in the ranking.
Villarreal have not won a home game against Barça since 2007. The good news for them is that the current Barça bear no resemblance to the Barça of previous years, and are struggling heavily now.
After Xavi Hernandez’s debut with a 1-0 win over Espanyol, Barça will be looking for their first away win of the season.
It seems unbelievable that at this point, match 15, Barça have still not won a single game away from the Camp Nou. They have three draws and two defeats in five away games, having scored just four goals and conceded seven.
The plague of injured players, such as Ansu Fati, Pedri or Ousmane Dembélé, added to the fact that they will come to this game after a very important match in the Champions League, will cause further problems for the team and will be a factor in this match.
Villarreal vs FC Barcelona Predictions
The arrival of Xavi Hernandez has improved Barça’s image, and that was seen in his debut. However, with the injured players they have and playing on a pitch as difficult as Villarreal’s, we don’t think it will be easy for them to win. We see both teams as very evenly-matched, so a draw seems a very likely result.
