Villarreal vs Barcelona Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions
The Yellow Submarine have picked up 13 points from a possible 15 since the restart and are now seriously challenging for a Champions League spot.
Barcahave picked up 11 points during the same time, a record which has seen them relinquish top spot in the table to Real Madrid and the pressure is certainly mounting on QuiqueSetien.
Barca have won just two of their last eight away matches in La Liga although they remain clear favourites for the clash on Sunday night.
The hosts will be hoping that midfielder Vicente Iborra recovers from the back problem that kept him out of the midweek win at Real Betis, butdefender Ramiro Funes Mori remains a long-term absentee.
Barca are still without Ousmane Dembele and Frenkie De Jong, who are their only major injury problems. Antoine Griezmann only played the last few minutes of injury time against Atletico Madrid and the Frenchman will be hoping to feature from the start this weekend.
The corresponding fixture last year was quite possibly the best game of the season in La Liga as Barca scored twice in injury time to secure a thrilling 4-4 draw.
While a repeat of that score line is extremely unlikely, Sunday's game should be an entertaining encounter with the league's most prolific team visiting the third-top scorers in the division.
Goals looks guaranteed at the Estadio de la Ceramica and Villarreal can certainly play their part, boastinga top-quality striking duo in Gerard Moreno and former Barca man Paco Alcacer.
Calleja's team have scored in 17 of their last 18 matches in La Liga, while also netting in 11 of their last 15 clashes with Barcelona in all competitions.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 9/10 (1.90) and looks a logical selection given the respective scoring records of the two sides.
For higher odds, backing the hosts to net over 1.5 goals at 7/4 (2.75) could also appeal.
