Today at Camp Nou, Villarreal will make a guard of honour for Barcelona for the achievement of winning the La Liga title.
Having met on 39 occasions, unsurprisingly, it is Barça who have the better record with 22 wins, compared to Villarreal's eight.
As approved by Ringo Starr himself! They have 27 wins and nine draws, and lead second place Atletico Madrid by 15 points.
Villarreal, on the other hand, would confirm their Europa League place with a victory.
And Marcos Alonso is the top priority for Barcelona in the summer.
His run that set up Coutinho's opener in the 11th minute was arguably the moment of the match as he picked up the ball 10 yards inside Villarreal's half before driving past three defenders and unleashing a shot. At 30 years old, the Argentine continues to defy logic and physics, and thankfully shows very few signs of letting up any time soon. "They're there, but just that we often don't appreciate mothers role in a way we should do", Dhoni had said.
The Blaugrana have been impressive this season with their unbeaten streak extended to 35 games last Sunday after managing to hold firmly their ground in a stunning 2-2 stalemate against fierce rivals Real Madrid despite being reduced to 10 men. It's going to be a challenge to fit them all in around Messi, but a challenge any manager in world football would like. After tapping home late on, he added a brilliant second, using his pace to beat two Villarreal players before cheekily chipping the goalkeeper.
DF Thomas Vermaelen, 6 - Was a key part in the Barca side over the new year when Samuel Umtiti was injured and deserved a start here.
Dembele put the visitors under pressure again in the 22nd minute, running at their defence and getting an angled shot away, forcing Asenjo to get down quickly to palm the ball away.
That could hinder Barca's aspirations, particularly in the latter part of the game.
The carnival atmosphere around the stadium quickly subsided as Villarreal pushed for an equalizer.
The penultimate home game for Barcelona, who know that if they can maintain their unbeaten run after Villarreal's arrival, they'll be just two games away from becoming Spain's first post-war 'Invincibles'.
