Villarreal vs. Barcelona Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Villarreal vs. Barcelona for La Liga

  • Where: El Madrigal, Villarreal, Spain
  • When: Saturday, February 12, 9 pm CET

Barcelona is close to winning their first La Liga title in four years, as Blaugrana holds an eight-point lead in the standings over their biggest rivals, Real Madrid. Villarreal is on the verge of the zone, which leads to European competition. Though, the UEFA Champions League is not far away, only four points ahead of the Yellow Submarine. So, all the options are open for the former Europa League winners, who are coming into this event with back-to-back losses.

Villarreal vs. Barcelona Preview

Villarreal

In the last month, Villarreal recorded just one win in five games. They played 1-1 in Vigo against Celta, then suffered elimination in Copa del Rey to Real Madrid 2-3 (even though they had a two-goal advantage), before beating Girona 1-0.

Yet following that event, Villarreal collapsed in back-to-back events, the first at home, against Rayo Vallecano, 0-1, and in Elche, 3-1. Something happened that completely disturbed the Yellow Submarine, but on the other side, they still had enough resources to finish this season successfully. 

This team is solid at El Madrigal this season, winning six of nine games, posting a draw, and recording two defeats. They scored 14 and allowed seven goals, having one of the best defenses at home in the entire league. 

Barcelona

Xavi’s unit plays a bit dull football, unlike when he used to rule the world with Iniesta, Ronaldinho, and Messi. This is Barcelona, whose focus is on results and wins, not the beauty on the field. Still, any critics are off because Barca holds the top spot. 

Blaugrana has ten wins in a row and 12 in the past 13 since the World Cup ended. The only event in which this crew couldn’t triumph was against Espanyol in La Liga, 1-1. 

The five-time European champions recorded nine consecutive victories away from Camp Nou, and in the majority of those events, we saw them netting at least twice. It’s much easier for Barca to play on the road, because rivals aren’t parking the bus in front of their goal like in Catalonia.

Villarreal vs. Barcelona Predictions

This is a very rough venue for any guest in Spain, but given the current form of these two units, with Villarreal on the decline and Barca on fire, our pick would be Blaugrana to triumph. 

Our verdict: Barcelona wins
