As part of one of Saturday's matches of the Spanish Football Championship, the players of Villarreal and Barcelona will clash in a face-to-face fight. Will any of the rivals be able to get a victory in this confrontation?
Villarreal's players are on the 12th line in the La Liga standings after 12 matches played. The asset of the "submariners" is 16 points. The week began for the "submarine" with an unpleasant defeat by Manchester United (0:2) in the LCH. Emery's team lost due to the stupidest mistakes in the second half, while he himself did not find the opportunity to respond effectively to the opponent. In the last match of the Spanish Championship, Villarreal drew 1-1 with Celta on the road.
As for the Catalan team, it is located on the seventh line in the table. In 13 meetings, Barca managed to score 20 points. At the end of last week, she held her first meeting under the guidance of Xavi and was able to defeat Espanyol in the derby with a score of 1:0. Memphis Depay scored the only goal, scoring an 11-meter shot. Barca did not show anything special in the LCH match against Benfica, having drawn with the Portuguese at Camp Nou.
Statistics and figures:
- Rivals have approximately equal quotes to win;
- Villarreal won twice in 5 matches;
- Barcelona knows no defeats in 5 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 2:1 in favor of the Catalans.
Barca, as a rule, successfully plays against Villarreal. Something tells me that the Catalans will be able to win this match. Our forecast in this case will be in favor of "blue-garnet" for a good quote.
