Barcelona will be hoping for a strong start when they play host to visiting Villarreal as at Camp Nou as they get their 2020/21 season underway.
After falling 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Barca faced a torrid time that was headlined by Lionel Messi signaling his desire to leave the club.
Ronald Koeman was appointed as the new coach while Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal have all left.
With Miralem Pjanic the only recognisable addition, it promises to be a long season for the Catalans who finished last season empty handed.
The Visitors on the other hand, coached by Unai Emery, have two league games under their belt this season so far – held in a 1-1 draw against Huesca and squeezed a 2-1 victory off Eibar 2-1.
Who To Trust? Villarreal have a decent squad that include Gerard Moreno, Paco Alcacer, Samuel Chukwueze not to mention new signing Francis Coquelin. They have always had strong lineups, but have found it difficult to beat Barcelona in the league.
Lionel Messi would want to give it all in his last season and end on a high, and the fact that Barca beat Villarreal home and away last season (2-1 at Camp Nou and 4-1 at Estadio de la Ceramica) makes it a Home Win for me.
