MAN UTD VS VILLARREAL PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
The quality of Manchester United’s squad is undisputed with 3 signings with Sancho, Varane and Ronaldo. However, coach Solskjaer’s team continuously disappointed when receiving the last ¾ defeat, including 2 consecutive defeats at Old Trafford. Right from the first match in the Champions League, the Red Devils received a shock of 1-2 defeat against the weakest team Young Boys with extremely poor performance.
Possessing top stars in attack, but Manchester United’s tactics are very deadlocked. In the last 4 matches, they only scored 3 goals and failed in both home matches. Especially in the 0-1 loss to Aston Villa last weekend, it can be clearly seen that the situation of Bruno’s penalty miss is clear. It will not be surprising if Manchester United continues to face difficulties against dirty opponents like Villarreal.
Villarreal’s form this season is not so impressive, but to beat the Europa League champions is not easy. With 7 unbeaten matches in all competitions, they have scored 7 goals but received 5 goals. The Yellow Submarine is showing great stability and bravery. In addition to the draw with Atalanta in the first match, coach Emery’s team also caught both Real Madrid and Atletico sharing points at away. The defense brings love when keeping a clean sheet in the last ¾ matches. Villarreal’s strength is still in their tenacious fighting spirit and cohesive team play. The problem will be Emery’s tight fighting style but will be ready to punish any mistakes of the opponent.
Both teams will need to be very cautious and have great respect for their opponents. They all have well-organized defenses, so the tug-of-war will be predictable. In fact, the last 5 confrontations of the two teams did not have more than 2 goals, even 4 matches ended with a score of 2-2.
Select: Under 3 FT.
Despite playing at home, Manchester United is under great pressure. Coach Solskjaer’s team has received 3 defeats in the last 4 matches, including a 1-2 defeat against Young Boys that received a lot of criticism. Remember last season, Manchester United also had to see Villarreal win the Europa League, then drew 1-1 in the two main periods and received a defeat on the penalty spot. Broadly speaking, in the last 5 meetings, the Red Devils has never won against Villarreal, if not, this is a dirty opponent.
If Manchester United is erratic, this season Villarreal is even more stable. Coach Emery’s team was unbeaten in 7 consecutive matches in all competitions, drawing big names like Real Madrid and Atletico. Although underrated, Villarreal’s solid play and fighting spirit are not easily subdued. The result of 90 minutes of competition is a worthy result for the efforts of the Golden Submarine.
