Match preview

Can Barcelona open up an 11 point gap at the top of the table?

Last Sunday night, goals from Jordi Alba, Gavi and Raphinha saw Barça swat aside Sevilla 3-0 at Camp Nou.

This takes Xavi’s team onto 53 points after 20 matches, conceding just seven goals so far; remarkable figures.

At the moment, the Blaugrana are eight points clear of Real Madrid, and have never failed to win the title when eight clear at any stage of a season.

With los Blancos not in action until Wednesday, due to FIFA Club World Cup commitments, will Barcelona move 11 points above their rivals at the summit?

Villarreal actually beat Real Madrid five weeks ago, so will fancy their chances of claiming another notable scalp here.

Quique Setién’s team have been very inconsisent since he took over in late-October, leaving Villarreal sixth.

Will Barcelona win, and keep a clean sheet at Estadio de la Cerámica, given that’s what they tend to do these days?
