Barcelona vs Villarreal Betting Tips
Five rounds have passed already and Barcelona are at the 8th spot, which is really surprising for a team of such quality. They’re still the number 1 favourite for winning the title, but they need to switch gears ASAP in order to get back on the right track. Barca have lost two games already, including the one to Grenada last Saturday. It was 2:0 for the underdog, which was really embarrassing for one of the strongest teams on the planet.
Barcelona need to get back on the winning track, but it won’t be easy against Villarreal, a team that’s currently one spot above them on the table. Still, Barcelona will have the support of their fans in this game. Even more importantly, they will have Lionel Messi in the team, who’s just returned from an injury. He did feature in the game against Granada, but obviously not enough to help his team get at least a point.
But, he’s back now and so are most of Barca’s first-team players. It’s fair to expect all of Barcelona’s best players are going to take part in the game against Villarreal. But, so should Villarreal’s. They’re coming to Barcelona to try and score as many goals as possible. The last time these two played, it was a draw. And we saw four goals at each end. Obviously, Villarreal have a lot of attacking power, the only question is can they keep up with Barca scoring-wise.
They probably can’t. When it comes to the attack, Barcelona is without any doubt, among the best teams in the world. And now with Messi in the squad, they are guaranteed to score a lot on Tuesday evening. This is why our Barcelona vs Villarreal betting advice is to put your money on goals. A lot of them!

Barcelona Form and Latest News
So far in La Liga, they lost two games, played draw once, and won two matches. They also played in the Champions League a week ago. Their duel with Borussia Dortmund in Germany finished without goals. Still, Barcelona were the worst of the two and BVB really deserved to win that game. Obviously, they’re not in a great form, but that must change quickly. Knowing how great their players are, not winning against Villarreal seems like a mission impossible.
Villarreal Form and Latest News
The season didn’t start too great for them, but then they improved their form greatly. They won their previous two La Liga matches, beating Leganes and Valladolid. Their strongest weapon is their attack. In fact, they’re sharing the top spot as the most prolific team in LA Liga (together with Barca) when goals are concerned. You should expect them to score on Tuesday evening as well.
