Villarreal vs Manchester United: Head-to-head (h2h)
Manchester United have won three of their last four meetings with Spanish opposition
These two teams last locked horns in the CL, 13 years back. Then, spoils were shared with a goalless draw.
Edinson Cavani has scored nine goals in his last ten appearances for Manchester United.
In fact, these two were pitted against each other four times so far (all in the CL), and every single match-up had ended with a 0-0 scoreline.
The Yellow Submarines had lost six of the former ten clashes against other English clubs.
Solskjaer’s men are on a four-game winning run against other Spanish squads.
Villarreal vs Manchester United Prediction
The two sides played out their first two 0-0 draws in the 2005-06 Champions League season – where Villarreal reached the semi-finals – before shaking hands on two more goalless stalemates in the 2008-09 campaign.
For Villarreal – who’s previous best in the Europa League was three semi-final appearances between 2003 and 2016 – this is an unfamiliar position.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may not have the trophy-winning pedigree of his counterpart but his Manchester United side have eliminated Real Sociedad, AC Milan and Roma to get this far and they should have more than enough about them to see off a Villarreal outfit that have lost four of their last nine games.
