Barcelona made six changes from El Clasico, notably Luis Suarez was named on the bench with Ousmane Dembele taking his place in the starting XI.
Let's take a look at three things that could affect the game.
Villarreal are currently occupying the sixth position on the La Liga table with 57 points from 35 games. "It was a very complete game".
After keeping possession, the Catalan maestro Iniesta threaded a superb through ball to left-back Lucas Digne, who slipped the ball across for Paulinho to double Barcelona's lead after just 16 minutes. Iniesta then shot wide, while Gerard Pique headed over as Barca pressed for a third goal before the break. The France winger followed up his impressive weaving run that saw him beat three defenders with a 20-yard shot which spilled out of the hands of Sergio Asenjo, giving an onrushing Coutinho the simplest of finishes from six yards on the rebound.
"We totally dominated the play in the first half and created loads of chances to score". The Yellow Submarines were playing better with Bacca coming close for the visitors.
The fans were then instructed to remove their headsets, only to be amazed that the real Barca stars were still in the room with them.
I never thought I'd get to meet the players, never mind get to practice my passing with them, ' one lucky fan said.
"Iniesta teaches you a lesson in every game". The former Dortmund attacker's second strike was lauded as 'incredible' by the man in the dugout.
Liverpool are reported admirers of the forward - although would have to spend most of their supposed £200m budget to sign him.
Barcelona will be looking to continue their march towards a historic 'Invincible' season when they play hosts to Villarreal at Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Messi recently admitted his role at Barcelona is changing and now an incredible heat map has emerged of his season that proves exactly that.
The intense nature and rush of the deal has led to some doubt and a feeling of mistrust, which is then pushed upon the individual.
