The Catalan giants are currently seventh in La Liga, 10 points off leaders Real Madrid, while Villarreal occupy 12th, four points behind their opponents this weekend
Villarreal have won three, drawn seven and lost three of their 13 league matches this season to collect 16 points and sit down in 12th position in the table, which is certainly disappointing considering the strength of their squad.
The Yellow Submarine have actually only won one of their last six in the league, which came at home to Getafe on November 7, while they shared the points in a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo last weekend.
Unai Emery‘s side will also enter this match off the back of a disappointing result in the Champions League, losing 2-0 at home to Manchester United on Tuesday, meaning that they need to pick up a positive result against Atalanta BC in their final group match to advance to the round of 16.
Villarreal have three games before that key trip to Atalanta, though, taking on Barcelona and Sevilla in the league, in addition to travelling to Victoria FC in the Copa del Rey.
The Yellow Submarine will be bidding to beat Barcelona in the league for the first time since March 2008, while the Catalan outfit have won the last four La Liga meetings between the two sides. [Credit: SportsMole]
