Barcelona face Villarreal at Camp Nou on Sunday on the final day of the Liga season with nothing but pride for Xavi Hernandez's men at stake.

The Catalans have already secured second place in the table and will hope to round off what has been a difficult season with a victory in front of their fans.

Villarreal, meanwhile, are playing to secure European football next season, with the Yellow Submarine needing a win to guarantee a spot in the Conference League.

Barcelona vs Villarreal latest odds

Barca's home form this season has been disappointing with the side losing four times in front of their own fans.

The hosts are offered at 19/20 (1.95) with bet365 to end the season on a high with three points, while the visitors are offered at 12/5 (3.40), although Villarreal have a poor record at Camp Nou, where they have lost on their last 11 visits in all competitions.

The draw can be backed at 16/5 (4.20).

Barcelona vs Villarreal first goalscorer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the market at 15/4 (4.75) with the former Arsenal captain scoring a brace in Barca's last home match against Celta Vigo.

Memphis Depay, who opened the scoring in that game, is available at 4/1 (5.00) to do so once more, with Ferran Torres priced at 5/1 (6.00).

The shortest priced Villarreal player to open the scoring is Arnaut Danjuma at 5/1 (6.00).

Barcelona vs Villarreal preview

Barca's game last weekend at Getafe was something of a non-event as the sides played out a goalless draw which suited them both.

Having claimed the point they needed to secure second place (and direct access to the lucrative Spanish super cup) Barca might be a little more adventurous on Sunday and they will certainly look to improve on the solitary shot on target they produced against Getafe.

Villarreal's domestic issues this term have centred on too many draws, although last weekend they were beaten at home by an impressive Real Sociedad, with Unai Emery's men looking a little jaded.

However, playing away against big teams this season, Villarreal have produced some impressive results, with their excellent draws at both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid coming before sensational European results in Turin and Munich.

The visitors should therefore be able to compete with Barca and backing them to contribute to another high-scoring game between these sides makes plenty of sense.

Barcelona vs Villarreal tips & predictions

The last six meetings have seen 27 goals scored, so backing over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 8/13 (1.62) should certainly appeal.
