Xavi’s Barcelona will be up against Unai Emery’s Villarreal on Sunday in their next La Liga game at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Barcelona have endured an abysmal run so far in their domestic league with three defeats, five draws under their name from their first 13 games. However, they will come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Espanyol and will look to bank on their winning momentum to go past Villarreal.
The home side were beaten 0-2 by Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Manchester United midweek during their group stage UEFA Champions League match and will look to go bounce back against a depleted Barca side on Sunday.
The La Liga match between Villarreal and Barcelona will kick off at 01:30 am IST.
