FC Barcelona look to hold or stretch their 10-point lead at the top of La Liga when they face a Villarreal CF team desperate to avoid relegation.

La Liga leaders FC Barcelona are sitting on what appears to be a comfortable, 10-point cushion at the top of the table, per Sky Sports, but that could turn around quickly this week, a week that will make or break the Catalan club’s bid for a second straight championship, and third in the last four years. The Blaugrana must avoid a stumble on Tuesday against a desperate Villarreal CF club that sits just a point above the relegation zone, ahead of a do-or-die match against second place Atlético Madrid on Saturday. Barcelona’s title campaign would be placed in jeopardy with anything less than the full three points in the Tuesday match that will live stream from El Madrigal.

Villarreal could shape up to be a dangerous opponent for Barcelona. As FCBarcelona.com reports, The Yellow Submarine — as the team is known in honor of its distinctive, fluorescent yellow kit — has long been La Liga’s model for how a club from a small town can succeed in the top flight. Villarreal has a population of just 51,000 compared to Barcelona’s 1.6 million people.

But now, the team that has spent five straight years in La Liga, even qualifying for the UEFA Champions League with a fourth-place finish just two seasons ago, now absolutely must win points to avoid a trip back to the Segunda Division.
