Villarreal vs Barcelona: preview
Barcelona visit Villarreal on Saturday in their first away assignment under new head coach Xavi Hernández, having kept their hopes of reaching the Champions League last 16 in their own hands in midweek.
A 0-0 draw at home to Benfica on Tuesday left Barça second in Group E with one game to go, but they now face the daunting task of beating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena to guarantee their place in the knockout stages.
In LaLiga, Barça sit seventh, six points off the top four, after beginning Xavi’s tenure with a 1-0 Catalan derby victory over Espanyol last weekend.
Villarreal were also in action in the Champions League on Tuesday, their 2-0 home defeat to Manchester United leaving them, like Barça, in need of a win in their final group game to be certain of progressing.
Unai Emery’s men are down in 12th in LaLiga, chiefly because of their inability to turn draws into wins: seven of their 13 league games have ended level this term.
Most recently, Brais Méndez's equaliser 18 minutes from time meant Villarreal had to settle for a point away to Celta Vigo last Saturday, having taken a first-half lead through Alberto Moreno.
