Villarreal v Manchester UTD Betting Preview  

Villarreal enter the final on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Real Madrid in the final matchday. They finished 7th in La Liga standings, meaning that a spot in the UEFA Conference League looms unless they secure Champions League participation by winning the Europa League. Before that came comfortable wins against Sevilla (4-0) and Valladolid (0-2). The Yellow Submarine only dropped two points during the group stage and have impressed throughout the knockout rounds, rattling off seven wins and a draw. They boast a potent attack — with just the big three of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, and Barcelona scoring more goals in La Liga this season.

After a painful run of four successive semi-final defeats, including against eventual winners Sevilla in this competition last season, the Red Devils have finally reached the final of an European Cup. They qualified for the big game despite second-leg defeat (3-2) in an 8-5 aggregate goal-fest against Serie A outfit Roma. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men finished their Premier League campaign as runner-up to Man City and enter this clash on the back of a 2-1 away win at Wolves. Prior to that, Man UTD were winless in three matches, having suffered home defeat at the hands of Liverpool (2:4) and Leicester (1:2) and shared the spoils with Fulham (1-1) at Old Trafford. The win at Molineaux also means that the Red Devils have become just the fourth side in English top-flight history to go a full season unbeaten on the road.

Best Odds

Team News & Probable Line-Ups

Villarreal (4-4-2): Asenjo; Gaspar, Albiol, Torres, Pedraza; Trigueros, Capoue, Parejo, Yeremy; Moreno, Alcacer

Influential winger Samuel Chukwueze has resumed training much sooner than expected and should be fit for Wednesday night. Tottenham loanee Juan Foyth could also make a surprise return after missing the last six matches with a hamstring tear. Anyway, Mario Gaspar should continue to bomb down the right flank. Etienne Capoue should partner midfield maestro Dani Parejo with former Arsenal Francis Coquelin providing a viable alternative. Up front, Carlos Bacca and Paco Alcacer are in contention - as usual - to partner the impressive Gerard Moreno, while Yeremi Pino and Manu Trigueros could feature out wide. Vicente Iborra is out for the long-term.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani

Harry Maguire continues to battle back from an ankle injury and is considered unlikely to be passed fit for the final. Eric Bailly is expected to partner Victor Lindelof at the heart of the back. David De Gea is expected to start between the sticks. The Spanish goalkeeper has provisionally got the nod ahead of Dean Henderson, having started the last four Europa League ties against Granada and Roma. Paul Pogba is likely to play as offensive midfielders - alongside Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford - behind the lone striker. For this role Edinson Cavani should be preferred to Mason Greenwood.

Our Villarreal v Manchester UTD Predictions    

Unay Emery is a master of the Europa League, having won the Cup three times in the past and also reached the final with Arsenal. United have slept walked their way to the final since they progressed from the semi-finals. Now they suddenly need to turn it back on and that isn't easy. Manchester United and Villarreal have previously met on four occasions. The result? Four 0-0 draws. So, it wouldn't be a surprise to see a cagey affair here. A 1-1 draw looks the most likely outcome, but we back Man UTD to lift the Europa League cup!
