"Villarreal among the best" - Luis Enrique

The Barcelona head coach heaped praise on opponents Villarreal ahead of their La Liga meeting today.

With Atlético Madrid losing against Sporting Gijón yesterday, Barça can as good as wrap up La Liga with a win over Villareal that would put them 11 points clear at the top of La Liga. An unassailable advantage with the class of football that Barcelona are playing at the moment.

Luis Enrique's men can make it 39 games unbeaten today, Iniesta didn't travel with the side due to a niggle, which means Leo Messi will captain the side.

Villareal will rely on Soldado and Adrián to try and drag Piqué and Mascherano out of position and pierce that stubborn membrane guarded so fiercely by Claudio Bravo.

Asenjo in the opposite goal may be the busier of the two today, his outstanding performance against Leverkusen still fresh in the mind.

A win today for the blaugranas and La Liga is as good as won.
