Spain’s Villarreal and England’s Manchester United arm up for a date with destiny in Gdansk, as the chance to finish off the season with the 2021 Europa League trophy hangs in the balance this Wednesday evening.
VILLARREAL VS MANCHESTER UNITED BETTING
For the first time ever, Villarreal have successfully made it past the semi-finals and into the Europa League Final. With the most successful manager in the competition, Unai Emery, spearheading their charge, El Submarino Amarillo look to make history this Wednesday against Manchester United in Gdansk.
Manchester United will become the second English team Villarreal will need to overcome in order to lift the Europa League trophy. Unai Emery’s emotional match up with his old club helped close a difficult chapter in the Spanish manager’s past. The ex-Arsenal manager overcame the Gunners’ assault by defeating them 2-1 over the two Europa League semi-final legs.
In the six matches Unai Emery has played against the Red Devils he has only beaten them once, drawing three times and losing twice. From a club perspective, Villarreal and Manchester United have met on the field four times, each of which ended in a goalless draw – which is on the market at 35/4 (9.75).
Villarreal’s most prolific striker this season, Gerard Moreno is at 39/20 (2.95) to find the back of the net for the 30th time this season, with his side measured at 13/7 (2.85) to lift the Europa League trophy.
For the first time in his management career – and on his fifth attempt – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has guided his Manchester United side over the semi-final hurdle and into a final. The Red Devils line up against Villarreal this Wednesday with a chance to win their first major honours in four years.
In their only ever final in the Europa League competition, Manchester United came out as the winners. Under Jose Mourinho, United saw off an up-and-coming Ajax side in 2017, with goals coming from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
This year, however, Manchester United will face a different challenge altogether. Villarreal promises to be tough competition for the second-place Premier League finishers, with their manager Unai Emery having already won the competition three times with former club Sevilla.
Despite a rocky end to the season, Manchester United are still favourites to lift the trophy this Wednesday at 3/8 (1.38), with their top goal scorer Bruno Fernandes at 8/5 (2.60) to get his 29th of the season.
