Villarreal was badly defeated by Manchester United earlier this week. The situation in the domestic league is not bright as well as the team is lying in 12th position with 16 points. The goal difference is 15-13. There is no news for any missing or injured players within the squad of the Yellow Submarine.
Xavi’s arrival has brought some optimism into the desperate dressing room of Barcelona. The team managed to beat Espanyol in the official debut of the former legend (1-0). However, the game against Benfica had been considered as a final, ended in a goalless draw. Thus, the chances for Barca to continue to the knock-out phase were significantly reduced.
The game is important for either team. Considering the problems of Barcelona in attack, the guests will not risk everything in search of a win. It is likely not to see many goals today.
