Barcelona vs Villarreal Prediction: La Liga Match on 27.01.2024
Villarreal started the week in 14th place, with their stats showing five wins, five draws, and 11 defeats, with 28 goals scored and 42 conceded. They have 20 points on the board, which is just five better than the relegation zone, meaning the away team has pressure on their shoulders to deliver. They’re winless in their last three, losing back-to-back league games before earning a draw at home to Mallorca on Saturday, with that game ending 1-1. Another share of the spoils would be a good result for Villarreal.
Barca holds all the aces here. They are the home team and will benefit from the support of the crowd. They are higher in the league and also have the better recent form, winning their last three games and now facing an opponent without a win in three. Will that form translate into a home win for Barcelona? Many respected pundits believe so.

The home team sets up with confidence following three impressive wins on the bounce. They are also unbeaten in four, following a 1-1 draw away to Valencia with three La Liga wins on the spin. They worked hard to beat Almeria 3-2 at the end of last year and build on those foundations by beating Las Palmas 2-1 on the road and Real Betis 4-2 at the weekend. The home team is flying, and this test comes at the best possible time for Barca.
Villarreal face the unenviable task of visiting the home of the champions on Saturday primetime. They must plan a way to beat one of the best teams in Europe on their patch and do so before a huge crowd cheering on the hosts. It won’t be easy, but Villarreal knows anything is possible at this level, and they are a match for any Spanish opponent when playing at their best. Will Villarreal make life difficult for their hosts? Silencing the crowd could give them an edge here.
