Barcelona head to the Estadio de la Ceramica to take on in-form Villarreal, looking to extend a winning run in their La Liga H2Hs to 22 games (W15, D6).
The hosts enter this round on a run of six La Liga games without a loss (W5, D1), with each of those triumphs yielding a clean sheet. Additionally, the ‘Yellow Submarine’ have avoided defeat in five of their last league home fixtures (W4, D1), scoring over 1.5 goals on four of those occasions. However, Villarreal have failed to pick up a win in ten of their last top-flight H2Hs held at this venue (D4, L6), with half (five) of those clashes featuring over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring. Quick out of the blocks, Javier Calleja’s men have scored the opening goal (if any) in 12 of 16 La Liga home matches this campaign (75%). Against the backdrop, 61.29% (19) of their 31 La Liga home goals scored this season came after the break.
Meanwhile, the visitors boast a seven-game unbeaten league run ahead of the kick-off (W4, D3), having kept a clean sheet on five of those occasions. But, away from home in La Liga, the Catalan giants have managed just one triumph from their last four league road trips (D2, L1), with only one of those games seeing both teams on the scoresheet. Particularly vulnerable after the break, Quique Setien’s men have shipped 66.67% (14) of the 21 La Liga away goals conceded in the second half of play. Indeed, Barcelona know how to put up a late show, with nine of their 16 league away matches featuring at least one goal (scored/conceded) inside the final 15 minutes.
