THE PREDICTION

This is Barcelona’s first league match of the season after they missed the opening two rounds due to their Champions League exploits in August. Their last competitive game was the 2-8 hammering at the hands of Bayern and in many respects, the situation at the club has deteriorated since then. The Lional Messi drama looked to be resolved but the departure of Luis Suarez has reignited some wounds. It will be interesting to see how life under Ronald Koeman commences but there is a lot of negativity around the camp at present. That makes this opening game even more challenging and Villarreal will likely be much sharper and further ahead in their preparations. Several teams in the major European leagues that have started later have struggled early on in their opening matches and expect Barca to find it equally as difficult. Villarreal can claim at least a draw here so consider the visitors who offer great value.
