Barcelona will be aiming for a fourth straight La Liga home victory when they host Villarreal on Thursday.

Barcelona will look to put their El Clasico woes behind them when they host Villarreal for Thursday night's La Liga encounter at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana suffered their first defeat of the ongoing La Liga campaign in El Clasico against arch-rivals Real Madrid over the weekend.

While Xavi Hernandez's men were thoroughly outclassed against the defending champions,

The Yellow Submarine have been in good form lately and find themselves 7th in La Liga table.

The visitors are coming off a 2-0 win over Osasuna on Monday and will travel to Camp Nou just a couple of days later to face Barcelona.

Villarreal have been solid defensively and difficult to break down in recent weeks,

But they may find it difficult to contain a Barça team that has won three in a row at Camp Nou.

FC Barcelona Predicted XI (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Alba, Pique, Kounde, Roberto; Pedri, Busquets, Gavi; Fati, Lewandowski, Torres

Villarreal will face Almeria at home on 23rd October before taking on Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the Europa Conference League on 2nd October.
