The Europa League season comes to a close this Wednesday, as Villareal of La Liga take on a Manchester United squad who seems to be on the upswing.
It is pretty amazing Villareal find themselves in this position given the fact they only ended up in 7th in La Liga, which is actually historically speaking a pretty good finish for them, but for a team to finish 7th in their domestic league and then go on to win a major European trophy would be a major accomplishment.
It must also be said though, that their path to this final was soft, as they got pas Dynamo Kiev, Dinamo Zagreb, and Arsenal who is a big name team, but have been awful this year so it will be interesting to see if they can step up in their biggest test of the season and in recent club history.
There may be some hope for Villareal if history is anything to go by, as Villareal has had an amazing defensive record against The Red Devils, as Man United have just not been able to score against them in their previous meetings.
If Villareal are going to score here it probably will be off the foot of Paco Alcacer, as the former Dortmund man has been solid since returning to the Spanish side and he has al the talent to give this United back line troubles.
This Manchester United side got past AS Roma in the semi final round of the tournament by an aggregate score of 8-5 and in all reality that tie was over after the first leg after United beat the Italian club by a scoreline of 6-2. United also had to get past another solid Italian side AC Milan in the round of 16, so this team has had a much tougher path to the final then their opponents here on Wednesday.
You really can’t talk about this United season without talking about their break out Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes, who has been outstanding pulling the strings in midfield and has chipped in plenty on the defensive side of things as well.
Look for United to lineup in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Edinson Cavani up top and Marcus Rashford on the right wing who I think might be the key guy here, as I expect this to be a cagey type of game and he has the creative ability in the final third to unlock the defense.
Free Villareal vs. Manchester United Europa League Prediction:
This should be a very tight match, but I think Manchester United will have enough to get the job done here, as they simply have more class and talent then their Spanish counterparts. The moneyline on United is also at quite a fair price at -120, as I think this would be quite a bit lower under different circumstances like not being a major cup final.
I would look for there to be a feeling out period for much of the first half, with the most decisive moments of the match coming in the second half where I believe Manchester United will be able to pull away. If there is an early goal though it will force the other team to open up, so it will change the complexion of this game in a big way should that happen.
