Manchester United will play against Villareal in the Europa League final on Wednesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues the hunt for his first silverware with the Old Trafford giants. It is Manchester United’s first cup final in three years and is expected to be a high-octane match.
Villareal coach Unai Emery has had great success in the Europa League, winning the competition thrice with Sevilla. He would certainly look forward to keeping his stellar record intact. Villarreal defeated Arsenal in the semi-finals on a 2-1 aggregate to book the showdown with Man United in the final.
So far, Villarreal are unbeaten in the Europa League this season. They have scored 13 goals in 14 matches. Villarreal’s second leg against Arsenal in the semi-finals was the only game when they failed to score.
Meanwhile, Man United would look to finish their season on a high by taking the trophy home. It has been a good season for them as they have shown good improvement in their performance compared to the last couple of years.
The Manchester United squad is well-rested as Solskjaer sent an inexperienced XI against Wolves in their last Premier League match of this season.
