Competition: Spanish Primera Division, Matchday 21
Match date: 1 February 2015
Kick Off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelon, Spain
Barcelona team are in a solid form in these days. The Catalans have 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat in their last 10 games and with that, they are still one point behind Real Madrid with 47 points. However, we should mention that Real Madrid has also one game in hand over their rivals. Luis Enrique’s side also continues their path in the Copa Del Rey as they defated respectively Elche and Atletico Madrid in the last two rounds by 9:0 and 4:2 on aggregate. Being down 2:1 on Wednesday night against Atletico Madrid was a stressfull situation for the Catalans, still they managed a comeback in a game where Neymar shined again. The brazilian magician shows a much better performance compared to last year and it can be proved cleary by looking at the number of his goals in 2014/2015 season. Besides Neymar, Argentinian superstar Messi has also been in great form in the last rounds and the problems between him and his coach Luis Enrique seem to be solved.
Villarreal play a great season in La Liga BBVA so far. The yellow submarines are on a 10 game unbeaten streak and they claimed seven victories in that streak. All of the last five home games were won and they also managed to stay unconquered in their last five games on the road by taking 3 draws and 2 wins. As a result of this performance, they are holding 6th place with 38 points before 21st matchday. Coach Marcelino has a very young team, which is known for a short passing game and the youthfulness is always significant in the energetic play they show on the field. Luciano Vietto, who has been a key part of Villarreal’s success so far with 14 goals and 5 assists in Primera, will become an important figure in Camp Nou. Like Barcelona, also Villareal played in Copa Del Rey at midweek and they reached the semi finals after a 0:1 away win over Getafe.
Probable lineups:
FC Barcelona: Bravo – Dani Alves, Pique, Mathieu, Jordi Alba – Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta – Messi, Neymar, Suarez.
Villarreal: S. Asenjo – Mario, V. Ruiz, Musacchio, J. Costa – Trigueros, Soriano – Campbell, dos Santos, Cheryshev – Vietto.
