How Barcelona could line up against Villarreal

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up in Sunday night's La Liga clash with Villarreal.

Barcelona will be looking to return to winning ways in Spain's top flight when they travel to an in-form Villarreal on Sunday evening.

The Spanish champions are currently four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, but the gap could become seven by the time that Quique Setien's side take to the field for this match.

Barca have shared the points in three of their last four matches in the league, including a 2-2 draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Catalan giants could line up against the Yellow Submarine.

Barca will again be without the services of Frenkie de Jong and Ousmane Dembele through injury, while Samuel Umtiti is also unavailable for selection due to a troublesome knee problem.

Antoine Griezmann's late appearance against Atletico on Tuesday night has led to a host of speculation surrounding the Frenchman's future, but the 2018 World Cup winner could be recalled to the starting XI this weekend, potentially joining Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi in the final third of the field.

Riqui Puig could be the player to drop out to allow Griezmann to start, while Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal should keep their spots alongside Sergio Busquets in midfield as Arthur is heading for Juventus this summer.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet and Jordi Alba are certain starters for the visitors in a defensive area.

However, there could be a change at right-back with Sergi Roberto, who made his recovery from injury against Atletico, potentially replacing Nelson Semedo in the starting XI.
