Something has to give: will it be FC Barcelona's seven-game winning streak, or will it be Villarreal's 18 match unbeaten streak? Both teams have been in impressive form as of late, and will soon square off in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, meaning that tonight's clash will serve as something of a preview, a dress rehearsal of sorts. Although equally, it's this La Liga clash that is arguably the most important match between the two sides this season.

FC Barcelona need a win to keep up with Real Madrid and maintain their lead over Atletico Madrid, while Villarreal CF need a win, or at least a point to ensure they don't slip further behind in the race for fourth place. There's so much to play for, and if the last encounter between the two sides is anything to go by, we should expect a close match.

On a tough night at El Madrigal, Barça struggled to break down a resolute Villarreal defense and only secured the three points courtesy of a late goal from substitute Sandro. However, with the likes of Luis Suarez now available after his suspension, and with Neymar likely to be named in the starting line-up, Barcelona will have more attacking firepower available tonight than they did back in August.

Will that reflect in the scoreline and enable the free-scoring Blaugrana to send out a statement to the rest of La Liga, or will it be more of the same at the Camp Nou? Predict the score of tonight's match by commenting with your prediction below. Best of luck!
