Villarreal have a Europa League expert at the helm in the form of Unai Emery, and if anyone knows how to mastermind a Europa League win, it’s him. In our Europa League predictions today, our Europa League betting tip experts are going to be predicting who’s going to win the Europa League.

The current constitution

Villarreal reached the final comfortably

Villarreal saw off all the teams that stood in their way pretty comfortably on their way to the Europa League final. They only conceded 3 goals in the 8 games of the knockout phase of the tournament, and will be hoping their excellent defensive record stays intact in the final.

The Spanish side finished 7th in La Liga, meaning they missed out on European football next season. But, if they win the final, they’ll have a free pass to the Champions League next year. If the opportunity to win some silverware wasn’t incentive enough, the chance to play in the Champions League will be.

“Manchester

After finishing second behind their city rivals in the league, and after crashing out of the Champions League back in December, United will be looking to end their season on a high with some European glory.

United saw off Roma comfortably with an 8-5 aggregate win in the semi-final, but they’ll be looking to ensure that Villarreal don’t get as many chances in this match. Rashford, Fernandes, and Cavani have been in great form this season, scoring 65 goals between them, and will be hoping to keep up this great goalscoring form on Wednesday night.

Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between Manchester United and Villarreal in 13 years. The last time the teams met in 2008, Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of United, and players like Ronaldo, Rooney, and Ferdinand were all in the starting line-up.

The teams have only met 4 times in their entire history, with all 4 games taking place in the Champions League group stage in 2005 and 2008.

All 4 games between the teams ended in a 0-0 draw. It’s highly unlikely that this game will finish in a 0-0 draw too.

Tip:
Manchester United to win 2-1.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having analysed the stats, taking into account goalscoring form and defensive records, our Europa League prediction this weekend is that Manchester United will win the Europa League, with United winning 2-1.

Manchester United to taste European Glory

Our Europa League prediction today is that Manchester United will beat Villarreal in the Europa League final, with the Red Devils winning the game 2-1.

Though Villarreal’s defensive record is excellent, and manager Unai Emery has won the Europa League 3 times (reaching the final 5 times), we can’t see them keeping a dangerous United attack at bay.

Villarreal will have one eye on the trophy and one eye on Champions League qualification next season, and we believe that this added pressure will go against them. United only have the trophy to play for. They will be looking to win their first silverware in 4 years, and first trophy under Solskjær.

Our betting experts are also providing you with another Europa League tips predictions, this one being that Manchester United will win 2-1 on the night.
