Villarreal hosts Barcelona at the Estadio de la Ceramica in a match from the third round of La Liga. Now wait for our in-play football betting tips for this game.
Villarreal, coached by Barca’s former manager Quique Setien, started their season with one win and one loss from the first two games. Their first win came last weekend when Villarreal faced Mallorca away from home – 1-0. It was Gerard Moreno who scored the only goal in the game in the second half. This time Setien’s 4-3-3 formation worked better, compared to the defeat against Real Betis in the first round.
The Chilean striker Ben Brereton is one of the players to watch in Villarreal’s squad. He arrived in the summer after spending many years in England. Now Brereton has the opportunity to prove his worth in one of the best leagues in the world. He’s still looking for his first goal in La Liga.
Barcelona are traveling to Villarreal after securing their first win for the season – 2-0 against Cadiz at home. It wasn’t an easy game, though – Barca needed two late goals from Pedri and Ferran Torres in order to win the three points. It seems that Barcelona are having some problems to score right now – something we saw in the first round against Getafe, too.
Robert Lewandowski is part of the problem. The Polish striker is still looking for his first goal for the season. If he doesn’t score enough goals, Barcelona can have some serious difficulties during the campaign.
Ferran Torres could start the next game. The Spanish international came from the bench against Cadiz and scored his first goal for the season. Now Ferran can get another opportunity to shine. This is a very important season for him.
That’s the in-play football betting tips for the La Liga clash between Villarreal and Barcelona. Let’s see how this one will go!
