Since losing to Real Sociedad earlier this month, Luis Enrique’s side have responded in style both in La Liga and the Copa del Rey, where they progressed to the semi-finals in midweek with a 4-2 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid.
However, Villarreal are also a side in form and are unbeaten in 18 matches, stretching back to their Europa League defeat to FC Zurich nearly three month ago.
The two teams are also set to meet in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey after Villarreal beat Getafe 2-0 on aggregate to reach the last four for the first time in their history.
Only a late goal from Sandro Ramirez separated them when they faced off at El Madrigal earlier this season. via | Sky Sports Football
