Barcelona will be aiming to secure a positive end to the 2021/22 La Liga campaign when they play hosts to Villarreal on Sunday.
Following a disastrous start to the season, Barcelona have turned it around quite well under the leadership of Xavi Hernandez. Although the Catalans have not been able to keep up with arch-rivals Real Madrid during the course of the season, they will be happy with the progress they have made, and things are only looking up for them as we gear up for the summer transfer window.
On Sunday, Barcelona will look to cap off their campaign on a positive note when they take on Villarreal at Camp Nou. The hosts have their second place in the league table secured thanks to a healthy five-point lead over Atletico Madrid.
Villarreal, though, are in for a more tense affair as they must secure all three points at Camp Nou this weekend in order to retain their seventh place in the league table. Despite reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League this term, the Yellow Submarine are running the risk of completely missing out on European football next season.
They are currently seventh in the league table, a point ahead of Athletic Club. But a defeat to Barcelona could hand Athletic the opportunity to finish in the UEFA Europa Conference League place, although the Basque outfit must secure a win over fourth-placed Sevilla.
Unai Emery’s men were beaten 3-1 at the hands of Barcelona in the reverse fixture. But the visitors will be hoping for better luck against Xavi’s men and here, at The Hard Tackle, we will run the rule over these two sides ahead of their enticing match-up at Camp Nou this weekend.
