Barcelona vs Villarreal
VIL vs BAR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
With La Liga already wrapped up and no trophy up for grabs, Barcelona may have been thinking about resting its key players for the last few games, and considering that this is a world cup year, it would have made more sense to save their players from mental fatigue.
But they still have a very special target to achieve this season. Not since La Liga became a 20 league competition that a team finished the whole campaign unbeaten.
After successfully negotiating Real Madrid in the last match, the La Liga champions have just the perfect opportunity to go undefeated in the 2017-18 season. They will be facing Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad in their last three league fixtures, and it’s fair to say that only a shocking display from Lionel Messi and Company would rob them off this achievement.
Villarreal, on the other hand, have everything to play for in their last three games. They are 6th in the table, 2 points behind 5th placed Real Betis but have played a game less than teams surrounding them.
The Yellow Submarine need only two points from their last 3 games to confirm, at least, a 6th place finishes in this campaign. This is pivotal for them in order to avoid a very early start to next season in the qualifying rounds of Europa League.
Villarreal are also in good form heading into this match. They have won 5 of their last 8 games, and their away form against the big teams is pretty impressive. They have won away against Real Madrid, Valencia and avoided defeat at Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid. So the away team has the calibre to cause an upset in this game.
