Before you make any Villarreal vs. Barcelona picks or any other Spanish La Liga predictions, you MUST see what SportsLine soccer insider Martin Green has to say!
After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated almost $33,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he is 6-5 (+1.96 units) on his La Liga picks in 2022. He has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Green knows Barca will be eager to get past the tough loss, and they have been strong otherwise all season. Robert Lewandowski has been the key, and the newcomer leads the league with nine goals and has three assists. La Blaugrana also are more rested and have far superior depth, so Villarreal face a tough road at Camp Nou. Barca will hold the ball for much of the game, with captain Sergio Busquets directing an attack that controls the ball for 65 percent of its matches. Barca are 19-6-1 in the past 26 meetings.
The expert also has considered that Villarreal have been nearly impossible to score against, conceding just three goals in their nine matches. Barca have dominated the series, but the Yellow Submarine won the most recent meeting 2-0 at Camp Nou to close out last season. Arnaut Danjuma scored both goals in Monday's victory against Osasuna, his first of the season after he put up 10 last year. Villarreal will try to spring Danjuma on the counter-attack against a Barca defense that had some serious breakdowns Sunday.
Now, Green has taken a close look at the Barcelona vs. Villarreal match from every angle, and we can tell you he is leaning Under on the goal total. He also has two CONFIDENT best bets and a full breakdown of this key Spanish La Liga match. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks and analysis before making any selections of your own.
