Villarreal: Stopping Barcelona is hard enough but what former Barca boss Quique Setien will be more worried about is breaching Barcelona’s defense. Villarreal average just over one goal per game, scoring 22 times in 20 matches, but Barcelona have only allowed seven goals through their defense despite Xavi needing to rotate his backline quite a bit due to injuries. With no reliable scorer after sending Arnut Danjuma to Tottenham, can anyone step up for the Yellow Submarine?
Barcelona: Xavi has created a machine in Barcelona. Fear has returned to playing them as La Liga sides go into a match feeling like they’re already down a goal but the team needs to make sure to focus on this match. It can be easy to have one eye on Manchester United in Europa League on Thursday but both matches are equally important as wrapping up La Liga early will allow Xavi more room to rotate down the road.
Barcelona rolls yet again with Robert Lewandowski finding the back of the net in a comprehensive victory over Villarreal. Pick: Villarreal 0, Barcelona 3
