Our match prediction:
Barcelona just can’t stop winning. The Catalan giants are on a twelve-game winning run in La Liga and they will be looking on a 3-1 win over Arsenal in the Champions League when they square off against Villarreal at Camp el Madrigal on Sunday. The Yellow Submarine are enjoying a season to remember as well, with the team making it to the Europa League quarter-finals thanks to a goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday evening. On the other hand, coach Marcelino saw his men slip to a 4-2 loss to Sevilla in their last league game, but despite losing to los Sevillanos at “Pizjuan” the Yellows remained in the Champions League berth. Villarreal are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will find the net in Sunday’s football game against the high-flying title holders. However, Marcelino’s troops are unlikely to put an end to Barca’s 12-game winning run as Luis Enrique can count on all of his key players for the Camp el Madrigal showdown.
Highligted Player (Luis Suarez):
Luis Suarez is a controversial footballer who plays for La Liga side Barcelona as a striker. The Uruguayan forward moved to Europe in 2006, signing a deal with Groningen. After scoring 10 goals in 27 league appearances for the club in the 2006/2007 Eredivisie campaign, he joined Ajax at the end of the season. The prolific striker scored no less than 81 goals in 110 appearances for Ajax and, as a result, Liverpool chiefs decided to sign him on 31 January 2011. Suarez became the club’s most expensive signing and he was producing thrilling performances with the Anfield outfit between 2011 and 2014. Liverpool were on the verge of winning the 2013/2014 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and they eventually finished the season in second place in the standings. In 2014 Suarez joined Barcelona and he was the top scorer in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. He won the 2013/2014 Premier League Golden Boot as well and in 2011 he clinched the Copa America trophy with Uruguay.
