Primera La Liga – Villarreal vs Barcelona Betting Preview

Villarreal didn’t do to bad last season as they managed to qualify for the Europa League qualifiers where they met Astana. The yellows played well over two legs and managed to qualify scoring seven goals and conceding none. They not have been drawn in group A along with Borussia Monchengladbach, Fc Zurich and Limassol and you would expect them to make it through this group and compete in the knockout stages. Villarreal managed to secure a win in their first league game beating Levante by two goals to nil.

Barcelona also won in their first game of the season against Elche 3-0 with Lionel Messi managing to get on the score sheet twice. Luis Suarez served the first of his suspension and he will miss the next three months, however he is training now finally with his new team mates.

The loss of play maker Cesc Fabregas might hit Barcelona hard and I really can’t see the logic in them selling him to Chelsea when their most creative player Inniestia is starting to struggle with age.

Villarreal vs Barcelona Average Goals Per Game Statistics

Taking a look at the goal statistics we see that there has been a total of 92 Goals scored from the previous 30 meetings between the two clubs which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.06

44 of these Goals have been scored in the 15 previous matches between the two clubs played at the home stadium of Villarreal which generates us with an average of 2.93 goals per game.

Both sets of statistics seem to suggest that we should see at least 2 or 3 goals scored in this game on Sunday Evening and the betting market of over 2.5 goals will be a good choice.

Villarreal vs Barcelona Current Betting Odds Market

Villarreal don’t stand much of a chance in this game in many people’s eyes, however they have managed to win their last five games. The bookmakers have Villarreal to win at a current best price of 22/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw will probably be another popular choice here as with both clubs unbeaten so far this season and it’s got to be the best value for money. The best price for the draw is coming in at 17/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Barcelona are the clear favourites with the online bookmakers with a current best price available of 13/20 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) and in my opinion it’s no real surprise given the quality of their players.

Villarreal vs Barcelona Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

A very entertaining game in prospect in front of a packed out crowd with the chance of an upset with home fans would love.

Barcelona are obviously the bookies clear favourites and they have dominated proceedings in the last five game with Villarreal not managing one win, however they did manage to snatch a draw and with looking at the best bet for everyone that likes a flutter this looks to be the option in my opinion.

Barcelona will want to keep up their unbeaten streak in the league and try and stay clear at the top with Messi scoring a brace last time out then we know hes back in the mood after his injury before the world cup, however Neymar did suffer an injury in the World cup and hes ok now but I think hes not in full flow as of yet.

My Banker for this game is going to be over 3.5 goals in the match as I feel both teams will want to get 2 wins from 2 and both will be open at the back.

My saver is Messi to score first.
