La Liga is back. And Barcelona better be ready for a tough road to the title.

Real Madrid are six points head in first place, and the Catalan giants do not have the luxury of dropping points regardless of how tough the opponent is. It doesn't matter if it's Villarreal at El Madrigal, which is the case this Sunday. The Yellow Submarine are one of the best teams in Spain when playing at their home stadium, and they have caused problems for Barça for the last several seasons.

Can the Blaugrana overcome one of the toughest challenges of the league and stay close to their biggest rivals in the title race? This will be a very difficult, yet very fun football match. You better not miss it.
