Double clash between Villarreal and Barça on Saturday

Jesús Carrillo

FC Barcelona have two games at Villarreal this Saturday –the first team are up against La Liga’s third placed team at 22.00 at the Madrigal, whilst earlier the B team face Villarreal’s reserves in their Segunda A game.

Double clash between Villarreal and Barça on Saturday

Separate journeys
The different kick off times mean that the two Barça teams will not be travelling together, with Guardiola’s squad journeying by train and Luis Enrique taking his team by coach and returning straight after their game.
With the B team’s promotion to the Segona A last season, the two clubs’ reserves were set to meet this year and by a fixture coincidence they will do so on the very same day that the first teams play . This Saturday Barca B meet Villarreal B at 18.00 and four hours later the first teams clash in a crunch game.

B teams kick off first

The hosts have all but secured their permanence in the division and Barca B are up with the top group of teams, seven points ahead of Villarreal.

First team at ten

Four hours later the big boys kick off. Both first team coaches, Pep Guardiola and Juan Carlos Garrido, were previously in charge of their B teams. Juan Carlos Garrido won promotion with Villarreal B two seasons ago and was appointed first team coach last year after Ernesto Valverde was sacked, while Pep also took Barça B to promotion –into Segunda B, before taking over the first team.
