Analysis

Villarreal finished 7th in the Spanish Liga and they lost their previous game against Real Madrid. If we take a look at the Europa League semi-finals, then they were in clinical form. They defeated Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate and should be high on confidence. Manu Trigueros and Raul Albiol had scored the goals for Villarreal.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be brimming with confidence after they finished 2nd in the Premier League. They won their last game against the Wolves and the score-line read 2-1. Anthony Elanga and Juan Mata had scored the goals for the Red Devils. They had defeated AS Roma 8-5 on aggregate in the semi-finals of the Europa League. Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford can be the key players for the United side.
