Prediction for Villareal vs Man United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had a fantastic season in both their domestic and European leagues. It’s taken them a few seasons to find their formula but it’s finally paying dividends.
United’s Europa League run has seen them eliminate Real Sociedad 4-0 and get past a much improved AC Milan with a 2-1 victory. Their potential has been heightened against Spanish teams which will be a cause for concern for Villarreal. In the quarter-finals, United defeated Granda 4-0 over two legs which brought them to the semis against Roma.
United now sits behind their neighbors Manchester City in the Premier League. City has it all wrapped up, but it was the two Manchester teams that dominated this season. Leaving last season’s winners Liverpool out of the picture. Manchester City is the firm favorite over Chelsea in the latest UCL final odds.
Ole’s starting eleven will likely feature the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and Mason Greenwood in the Manchester United attack. This United side is begging to show glimmers of the tremble era, who were incredibly spoiled for choice. With the likes of Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani to call upon.
The one cause for concern is United’s defense. They let in five goals over two games against Roma, they will need to tighten this up. One bet that is worth considering is over 2.5 or 3.5 goals, I expect this to be a high-scoring game.
‘If Manchester United turn up and perform anywhere near their best, they win the game, hands down, probably by a couple of goals,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport after the Europa League finalists were confirmed.
While Villarreal secured their first-ever Europa League final under Unai Emery. The Spanish outfit beat his former team and was the more efficient side with six of nine shots on target. Both sides managed an impressive 84% pass accuracy with Villarreal have less possession but making more use of the ball when in possession.
Villarreal are currently in 7th spot in La Liga and are making a run for Real Betis and Real Sociedad who are sitting in 6th and 5th place respectively. This means that Emery may night have the chance to rest his top players before the final on May 26. In terms of injuries, Chukwueze will miss the final in Gdansk for Villarreal.
Gerard Moreno has the firepower that United will need to be prepared for. He scored an impressive 20 goals in La Liga this season for the Yellow Submarines.
The key takeaways if you are betting on this year’s Europa League final are. Manchester United has a great advantage over Villarreal. However, they have faltered many times under Ole Gunnar’s reign and are vulnerable towards the back. Villarreal are true underdogs coming into this game and have real goal-scoring potential.
