Sportsmole’s Matt Law: Barcelona 2-1 Villarreal
“This is a bigger match for Villarreal than it is for Barcelona, with the visitors looking to finish seventh. Xavi’s side will be keen to give their supporters something to cheer at the end of a difficult season, though, and we believe that the home team will have enough quality to secure all three points here.”
Sportskeeda: Barcelona 1-2 Villarreal
“Villarreal, have scored eight goals in their last three away league games, so they should be able to capitalise on a weakened Blaugrana team. While Villarreal have not been able to beat Barcelona in over 14 years, they could take all three points from this game, as the stakes are higher for them.”
