Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona can take a major step towards retaining their league title with a win over struggling Villarreal in their meeting on Tuesday night.
Barcelona have a ten-point lead over nearest challengers Atletico Madrid at the moment and an away win over the Yellow Submarines will edge them closer to the finish line as far as the La Liga title is concerned.
Atletico Madrid and city rivals Real Madrid have failed to match the consistency shown by Barcelona since the start of the season.
It’s only a matter of time before Barcelona wrap up their second successive title under the guidance of manager Ernesto Valverde.
The Catalan giants will definitely start as favourites against Villarreal who have surprisingly struggled in the Spanish La Liga.
They lost a two-goal lead against Celts Vigo at the weekend to then lose 3-2.
The Yellow Submarines are now just one point above the relegation zone with the disappointing loss to Celta Vigo who are also in a battle to survive the drop in the Spanish top flight.
Villarreal can claim an unlikely home win over Barcelona at the odds of 5.25 according to Bet365 while a stalemate is at the odds of 4.20.
Barcelona have winning odds of 1.57 according to Bet365.
