Ernesto Valverde’s men are no longer leaders after a poor series of results in the past couple of Matchdays in Primera. They are one point shy of new leaders Sevilla coming into the 14th round clash with the Yellow Submarine.

Ernesto Valverde’s men were on the brink of losing the second straight league affair last weekend when substitute Ousmane Dembele saved them a point with a last-gasp leveller after Lionel Messi’s delivery. The Catalans did pick up a victory in mid-week when they saw off PSV 1-2 at Philips Stadion to secure the first place in their respective Champions League group.

Barcelona vs Villarreal: Head-to-head

Barcelona were the dominant force in the history of head to head matches against the Yellow Submarine.

Blaugrana won 13, drew 4 and lost only 3 of 20 H2H games at Camp Nou.

Barca won each of last three head to head encounters with Villarreal by at least two goals difference netting 11 goals along the way.

Barcelona vs Villarreal: Prediction

The visitors have been struggling for consistency ever since the start of the season. They are unbeaten in past six matches in all competitions, but such streak counts for little if we know five of these games ended without a winner.

This is why Javi Calleja’s men sit as low as 16th in the league ladder at the moment. They had a tough away fixture against Rangers on Thursday in Europa League. The goalless draw kept them at the top of the Group G standings, but with a completely open situation ahead of final round affairs.

We have to mention Villarreal produced a fine display in a 2-1 victory over Real Betis seven days ago. It was probably their best performance of the season. Striker Gerard Moreno and Samuel Chukwueze were on target on the occasion.

Barca conceded at least a goal in all of past five matches in all competitions. This is why we see the home win & BTTS as a standout pick at the odds of 2.40 here.
