Barcelona Prediction – Can Barcelona find their mojo?

Undoubtedly yes, but if they’ll find it in spades against Villarreal on Tuesday night remains to be seen as the hosts head into this clash at the Camp Nou on the back of a surprising 2-0 defeat away at Granada over the weekend in La Liga.

Ernesto Valverde’s side have produced a mixed set of results so far in this new Spanish top flight season, with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats which has left them in a disappointing 8th place on the La Liga ladder after the first few weeks of the campaign.

Despite their poor start (by Barcelona’s standards), the hosts have won both of their opening home matches with wins against Real Betis and Valencia, both by 5-2 margins, so we could perhaps be in for further goals on Tuesday night.

Barcelona have also won 13 of their last 14 matches at home in La Liga, and this includes a 2-0 win over tonight’s visitors, Villarreal, back in December of last year. Interestingly, Barcelona have beaten Villarreal by 3 goals or more in just 2 of the last 7 meetings against their visitors.

Villarreal Prediction – Can Villarreal avoid heavy defeat?

This could actually be the best time for Villarreal to travel to the Camp Nou to take on Barcelona as the hosts seem to be ever so slightly rusty in these first few weeks of the new La Liga campaign, and Villarreal have also recorded a couple of recent wins too.

Villarreal currently occupy 7th place in the early Spanish top flight standings having suffered just 1 defeat from their opening 5 matches of the new domestic season, that being a 2-1 loss away at Levante, but the visitors are unbeaten in their last 3 matches overall in La Liga.

A creditable 2-2 draw at home with joint La Liga leaders, Real Madrid, was followed with back-to-back wins against Leganes 3-0 away and a solid 2-0 home win over Real Valladolid, so Villarreal have every reason to be confident about their chances of getting something out of this Tuesday night clash with Barcelona.

At the very least, Villarreal stand a good chance of avoiding a heavy defeat here, and if they lose by just a 1-goal margin then this pick wins, and as they’ve avoided a defeat by 3 goals or more in their last 11 matches on the road, then this pick may come to fruition.


Key-Facts – Barcelona v Villarreal

  • Barcelona have won 13 of their last 14 matches at home in La Liga
  • Villarreal haven’t been beaten by 3+goals in their last 11 away matches on the trot
  • Barcelona have beaten Villarreal by 3+ goals in just 2 of the last 7 meetings


Betting Tips Verdict

Barcelona aren’t quite at full throttle yet so this may give Villarreal a fighting chance of getting something here.
