Barcelona are set to face Villarreal at Camp Nou on Monday, as they hope clinch the three points in the home encounter. The Catalan giants remained grounded by a scoreless draw with Getafe in their previous La Liga fixture.
Xavi could opt for a 4-3-3 formation again and will be making minor changes to the formation. Ansu Fati could be given the nod over Ferran Torres.
4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup Vs Villarreal
Marc-André ter Stegen will operate in between the sticks for the Catalan outfit. Samuel Umtiti could get the nod over Mingueza and try to impress alongside Clement Lenglet at the heart of Barca’s backline as they hope to keep a clean sheet.
Dani Alves could keep his place at right-back and Jordi Alba should return at the left back position. Both of them will look to get forward and create chances in the final third.
Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia and Sergino Dest could miss this game because of injuries.
Frenkie de Jong will return, so we can expect to see him feature along with Gavi on either side of the midfield. Sergio Busquets will slot into the holding midfield position.
Pedri remains sidelined due to injury. Sergi Roberto is also likely to miss the game.
Ansu Fati could get the nod to express himself down the left flank while Ousmane Dembele starts on the right-wing hoping to use his pace and create opportunities in front of the goal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the line, and he should fancy his chances of finding the back of the net.
Luuk de Jong and Ferran Torres will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on in the second half to impact the game if needed.
