Live in-play betting – 

League leaders Barcelona will continue to play their part by winning their own games and hope that Real Madrid will drop points for them to win the La Liga crown.

Barcelona are currently top of the La Liga with 81 points, the same points total as rivals and 2nd placed Real Madrid, but they have played a game more.

The Catalans have won 5 of their last 6 games and are currently on a run of 4 straight wins including a victory away to Real Madrid.

Barcelona have won all but one of their last 9 home games in all competitions – the only exception being a nil-nil draw against Juventus in the Champions League.

Villarreal are currently 5th in the league table, only 1 point above 6th placed Athletic Bilbao and just 2 points separates them from 7th placed Real Sociedad.

A defeat in this game could see them drop out of their European spot depending on the results of other fixtures.

Their away form is equally good – they have lost only 2 of their last 10 away games, winning 6 of those fixtures, including victories at AS Roma, Celta Vigo, and Atletico Madrid.

They won their last game away at Atletico Madrid which is quite an achievement.

Despite Villarreal’s good form, bookmakers make Barce massive favourites at odds of 1.14.

Villarreal are currently trading at odds of 17.0 to win at the Camp Nou.
