‘We’re going to Barca to win’

Marcelino Garcia Toral has outlined Villarreal’s ambition to cause Barcelona trouble and to try and defeat them on Saturday.

The Yellow Submarine head up to Catalonia for Week 16 League meeting fifth in the table and with their tactician harbouring ambitions of an upset.

“We are going there to win. If we were not, we would stay at home,” Marcelino has told reporters today.

“We arrive with ambition, and the hope of making things difficult for them. Then, we may lose, it is normal that you can lose on the field, but we go there with the idea of causing them a surprise.

“We will defend long and hard. We want to bother Barcelona greatly. We are fine, we are playing well and we are achieving good results.

“Therefore we are thinking about causing Barca problems and playing a good game there. We have to play well individually and work as a group, that’s the idea.”
