The BAR vs VIL match preview –
The defending champions of the Spanish La Liga Barcelona are on their way of getting back on top as they face Villarreal on Sunday.
Barcelona have qualified for the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League but currently, sit in the 2nd position in the league table. For some reason, they are not able to get on a win streak to have a healthy lead. Injuries have caused a lot of problems and this is causing them to lose important games. If this continues, not only will they lag behind the pack domestically but also lose the plot in Europe.
On the other hand, Villarreal finally are playing at the level expected from them. Injuries have left the squad and the team is finally winning games. They have an excellent midfield and if used correctly can cause problems against any team they face. With European duties gone, Villarreal FC will solely focus on La Liga from this point forth.
