VILLARREAL VS MAN UTD PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
With 2 consecutive victories at home, Villarreal has a solid fulcrum in the reception of Manchester United. Unai Emery’s students faced many difficulties in the new season, but they have caught up and improved their performance in all competitions. Villarreal is rediscovering the identity that made the Europa League championship last season, especially the increasingly solid defense. In the last 3 matches, they only conceded 1 goal, of which 2 matches at El Madrigal kept a clean sheet. The statistics of 4 consecutive matches with no more than 2 goals also show the pragmatic playing trend of the Yellow Submarine. Notably, 3 times to welcome MU in the past, Villarreal only received 1 goal. The goal of bringing back at least 1 point to protect the top of the table is completely within reach.
The 1-4 defeat against the rookie Watford was the last straw, Ole Solskjaer had to leave as an inevitable thing. Understandably, when looking at Manchester United’s all-star squad, it’s been consistently disappointing. In the last 7 matches in the Premier League, the Red Devils received 5 defeats and only 1 win with 7 goals. Even mid-range teams like Aston Villa or Everton can make MU’s attack mute. Not only poor in gameplay, but the defense is also becoming a disaster with the last 13/14 matches not keeping a clean sheet. It will not be a surprise if MU continues to play deadlocked and the task of not losing is put on top.
The situation of Group F is uncertain when Atalanta is only 2 points behind to meet Young Boys in this round. The game was extremely cautious as was predicted because any footfall could take away the ticket to the next round. 5/6 previous confrontations did not have more than 2 goals, Villarreal’s 2 consecutive home matches also had faint results.
Select: Under 2.75 FT.
El Madrigal is a difficult place to go to any team in Europe, Manchester United is no exception. In the two trips here, the Red Devils representative has never smiled in victory, not to mention the bitter defeat on the 11-meter mark in the Europa League final last season. Villarreal’s recent home form is very reliable with 4 wins in 6 matches in all competitions, confidence is returning to the students of Unai Emery.
On the other side, Manchester United lost 2 drew 1 in the last 4 away matches, must also repeat the 1-2 defeat at Young Boys Stadium in the opening match. More ominously in the last 11 Asian rafters, MU only won 2 matches but lost the remaining 9 matches. In the crisis, having to march to the dangerous place, 3 points seems to be too difficult a task. With the goal of not losing to the competition and the calculation of the two teams, the draw result is a wise choice.
Select: Villarreal FT.
The European odds rate Manchester United’s chances of winning are somewhat better. However, the balance of this match cannot be denied because Villarreal is very stable when playing at home. The draw result reflects the performance of the two teams as well as makes them temporarily satisfied before the final round.
Select: Draw FT.
The pragmatic playstyle will be enhanced, along with the nature of the difficult game to contribute many goals. The struggle in the first half and inconclusiveness after the final whistle was an easy scenario.
