Barcelona will be out to make up for the El-Clasico defeat against Real Madrid when they host Villarreal in their upcoming La Liga match at Camp Nou on Thursday.
Villarreal will look to continue in their winning ways after the two consecutive victories against Austria Vienna in the Europa Conference League and against Osasuna in La Liga when they face wounded Barcelona at Camp Nou.
Barcelona was the deserved loser against Real Madrid in their last game and would aim to win against the Yellow Submarines to remain competitive in La Liga.
Barcelona has suffered a dip in form of late and they have not been able to tidy up matches in their usual way following the back-to-back drop of vital points in the Champions League and in the domestic scene.
The Camp Nou outfit won just only one match in their last five outing in all competitions and would have a lot to handle when they host Villarreal.
Though the host has a decent record against the visitors having won four times in their last five meetings though the last meeting at Camp Nou ended in the favour of the Yellow Submarines.
The visitors won their last game against Osasuna in La Liga and would be full of confidence going into the clash against Barcelona which has lost its momentum at the moment following the strings of unwanted results at Camp Nou.
Villarreal won three of their last five matches in all competitions and would be full of confidence approaching this clash, having in mind they won at Camp Nou last season.
Both teams to score
