Villarreal vs Barcelona
This is a great challenge for both teams who have disappointed lately by losing in Copa Del Rey.Villareal are currently positioned 5th just two points less than Atletico Madrid 4th and five points less than their opponents Barcelona.The main goal for Villareal this season is definitely to reach the Champions League and they have shown that they have the will and strength to do it.However their recent form in the league have been LLDWW, they got an important and very convincing 3-0 win against Atletico Madrid at home which speaks out loud that they will seriously fight for the fourth place.They have shown to be a really strong team at home with a great record of six wins, one draw, and a loss.
On the other side, this is a must win match for Barcelona.This match will decide if they will keep on chasing Real Madrid for the title or fight with Sevilla for the 2nd place.They are currently positioned 3rd, two points less than Sevilla and six points less than Real Madrid.It is worth to that Real Madrid ends this week with a total of sixteen matches while Barcelona seventeen, which makes it even more difficult for Barcelona to catch them in case, they do not get a win tonight.In spite of the disappointing form lately in the League DDDWW, and a loss in Copa Del Rey, Barcelona has shown to maintain the best away record of the League with six won games, one tie, and a loss.
To sum up, both these teams need to win tonight in order to achieve what they aiming for.Both of them hold a record of (6-1-1) on their home and away forms, respectively.However, I personally think Barcelona will be the winner here.Not only they need to win in order to keep fighting for the title but it is really important for their mentality as well.
Head to head, Barcelona has won thirteen out of their last sixteen matches, and the other three have ended a draw.There have also been scored over 2.5 goals in seven of their last eight games head to head.It seems that these two teams play a really open game against each other and that is what I expect this one to be as well.
In my opinion, the most valuable pick for this one would be Barcelona to win and Over 2.5 goals to be scored at the odds 2.10
