Villarreal vs Manchester United Predictions

  • United have conceded 13 goals in their last five games
  • Both teams have scored in United’s last eight Champions League matches
  • Three of Villarreal’s four group games have seen BTTS land
  • Villarreal have drawn nine games already this season

Huge night for United

Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s sacking at the weekend and the lack of a replacement suggests the United hierarchy panicked ahead of this huge clash on Tuesday night. Their Champions League group is among the closest in the competition, with only four points between top and bottom.

United are level on seven points with Villarreal, while Atalanta could leapfrog them with a win over Young Boys. This group could look very difficult for the Red Devils with a slip up in this game, to clearly that forced them into a change. However, it still won’t be an easy night for United.

Villarreal in contention

The Spanish side have won four of their last six at home and they’re coming into this game following successive Champions League victories. That’s put them in contention to make the next round and the Spanish side should enjoying facing a United side who have conceded 13 goals across their last five.

Villarreal have scored in all four of their Champions League games this term, while they’ve scored at least twice in three of those. They’re shaping up to be a real threat to United this week.

Problems remain for Red Devils

Solskjaer may be gone, but that change doesn’t fix the ills in this United side. They can’t suddenly learn to press, while they aren’t going to dramatically turn around their European record. The Red Devils have claimed late wins at home in this group, but they’ve been awful in all four performances.

Their poor displays have seen them concede in every game, but they’ve also managed to score in every match thanks to their firepower. Both teams have scored in United’s last eight matches in this competition, so that’s worth backing this week.

Across their 360 minutes of Champions League action this term, United have led for just over an hour. Meanwhile, Villarreal have been behind for about 35 minutes in this group. However, the Yellow Submarine have drawn nine games already this season. As a result, a 1-1 draw is my correct score prediction.
