    This week Barcelona and Villarreal will meet in La Liga. The match between the Blaugrana and the Yellow Submarine will take place at Camp Nou and kick off on Thursday at 20:00 UK time.

    Barcelona

    Barcelona struggled for much of last season and could not challenge bitter rival Real Madrid for the La Liga title at all. However, things are going much better for the Xavi team this season, and the Blaugrana are actively fighting for the championship.

    Blaugrana are currently second in the La Liga table with 22 points from nine matches. Barcelona are three points behind leaders Real Madrid and could well challenge the reigning champions for the title before the end of the season.

    However, Barcelona were defeated in El Clasico last weekend. Xavi’s side lost 3-1 to Madrid away from home at the Santiago Bernabéu. It was followed by a 3-3 draw with Inter Milan at the Camp Nou in the UEFA Champions League.

    Team news:

    Memphis Depay has pulled out of Barcelona with a hamstring injury, while Ronald Araujo has been out of action for the former La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners for a long time. Hector Bellerin and Andreas Christensen will not stand aside either.

    Villarreal

    Villarreal have performed well in La Liga over the years and have even played in major European competitions such as the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League in recent seasons. Last season, Yellow Submarine finished seventh in the La Liga table and this time they will aim for the best.

    Unai Emery’s team is currently seventh in the La Liga table with 15 points from nine matches. Villarreal are just four points behind former Spanish champions and runners-up Atlético Madrid. The Yellow Submarine has started the season strongly and must maintain this high level in the coming weeks and months to get into the top four.

    Villarreal will play in La Liga against Barcelona at the Camp Nou after beating Osasuna 2-0 at the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia in La Liga. This followed a 1–0 victory over Austria Vienna away in the UEFA Champions League.

    Team news:

    Francis Coquelin will not play for Villarreal until early November due to a calf injury. Gerard Moreno and Juan Foyt could miss the match for Yellow Submarine.

    Key Factors to Consider

    • Barcelona have scored 21 goals in 9 La Liga matches.
    • Barcelona have conceded 4 goals in 9 La Liga matches.
    • Villarreal have conceded 3 goals in 9 La Liga matches.
    • Robert Lewandowski has scored 9 goals in 9 La Liga matches.
    • Alex Baena has scored 3 goals in 9 La Liga matches.

    Conclusion

    Things are going well for Villarreal at the moment and Unai Emery’s team will head to the Camp Nou thinking about their chances of beating Barcelona. However, Barça have a better team and they will also be determined to bounce back from their defeat at Real Madrid.
