Barcelona vs Villarreal Match Preview
Barcelona have struggled for consistency early in the new campaign and they host Villarreal for their La Liga clash just days after their trip to Granada, as they look to finally pick it up and challenge the top spot. They’ve been denied by Borussia Dortmund (0-0) midway through the week and will now need more, as Leo Messi finally returns to the lineup.
Blaugrana have been scoring goals on the regular at Camp Nou and will surely want to keep up such a tally here, after beating Real Betis (5-2) and Valencia (5-2) in two very exciting displays early on. Ernesto Valverde will have to keep the attacking line in check and this will serve as a good opportunity to do so.
Indeed, Villarreal have seen their share of real thrillers early on and they’ve got the second-highest scoring total and the most goals conceded in the league so far. They will now hope to put on a solid challenge and build on their five-point tally just days after hosting Real Valladolid for another thriller in the making.
Yellow Submarine have shared the spoils with Granada (4-4) and Real Madrid (2-2) early on, beating Leganes (0-3) and only suffering a 2-1 loss at Levante along the way. We thus hope to see them make this one a great contest for points but we hardly see them taking home any spoils on the day.
We will thus go for Barcelona to turn a thrilling contest their way and we’ll go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 6/5 with William Hill and has caught the eye of many with Barcelona’s lack of stability at the back.
Indeed, Blaugrana have been scoring and conceding many goals at home ground as well, which points towards such a claim. With that in mind, we’re now also going for Over 3.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with William Hill, which also seems a solid approach to the fixture here.
