The concrentraráción will be key, also, because the 'groguets' have resources with what do him a lot of damage to the Barcelona in the offensive. However, although the panorama always goes to be complicated, the Barça has to return home with the three points.
The importance of the party is maximum, but the history and the statistical smile him to the one hundred by one hundred to the Barça. And it is that the Villarreal has not won in his last 24 parties against the FC Barcelona in LaLiga, registering six ties and 18 defeats.

Likewise, the last victory of the Villarral in front of the Barcelona, of general way, went in March of 2008, after imposing 1-2 in the Camp Nou. In that opportunity, Marcos Senna and Tomasson marked for the 'yellow submarine', whereas Xavi annotated the so much of the culés.

To the trainer of the Villarreal, Unai Emery, neither has gone him very well against the Barça. And it is that only it has won 5,3% of the parties that has 'contested' from the bench against the Barcelona picture in League. In total have been 19, with a victory (2015, with the Seville by 2-1), five ties and 13 defeats. It is, in definite, his lower percentage in front of a same rival to the that have confronted at least in five opportunities.
No only it has suffered in the championship suspender belt, it is necessary to stand out. In 2016 it lost the final of the Glass of Rey, with the Seville, and was protagonist in the traced back historical of the FC Barcelona against the PSG in the Champions League 2016-2017. In that opportunity, his team had won 4-0 in the gone of the eighth of final and the culés traced back 6-1. An eliminatory for the history that, surely, lives in the memory of the trainer of Fuenterrabía.
