Barcelona Keeps Title Hope Alive With 2-1 Win Over Villarreal 

Badmus Abdulsobur 

Barca keep their pace in the LaLiga title race by seeing off hapless Villarreal. Griezmann's two goals proved to be the difference in the end, the winner coming from Foyth's mistake.

 Although Barca stepped off the gas in the second half, Villarreal didn't do enough to take advantage and Trigueros' red card for a terrible challenge on Messi killed any comeback they might have had.

Barca's win cements their position in third in LaLiga.
 Koeman's men are just two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, and on equal points with Real Madrid who have played a game more.

 They could yet pip their rivals to the title. Villarreal stay seventh. A top five finish is still well within their means.

Barca's title challenge continues next week as they host Granada, while Villarreal welcome Arsenal for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.

 Barca may have come out on top here, but both teams could be celebrating come the end of the season
