Both Teams to Score – Yes

We've already mentioned that these two teams met last season in the Europa League final, which Villarreal won after penalties. Before that, both teams have scored to make it 1-1 and we expect to see both teams scoring in this game as well. After all, both teams have scored in three of the last five Man Utd fixtures, as well as three of the last five Villarreal matches in all competitions.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While Manchester United averages exactly 3.00 goals per game in the Premier League this season, Villarreal averaged just 1.5 goals per game in La Liga so far. However, both teams have gone over 2.5 total goals in their first match in the new Champions League edition and our prediction is that we will see the same in their upcoming duel.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Score at Any Time

The Portuguese legend surprised many when he decided to leave Juventus and get back to his former club, but Man Utd fans were certainly delighted with the news. More importantly, Ronaldo didn't disappoint since he hit the ground running straight away by scoring four goals in four games that he played in all competitions. With that in mind, betting on him to score against Villarreal sounds like a smart move.

Man Utd vs Villarreal preview: The rematch of the Europa League final

After a few important addition this summer, Man Utd was pinpointed as one of the favourites in the Premier League and Champions League. However, the team enters the second round of the CL group stages with three losses in the last five games, including the loss to Young Boys in the first round of this competition. So, the team is obviously not in the best form at the moment.

With four draws in the first four matches of La Liga, Villarreal struggled to get the win. Finally they beat Elche and then they drew against Real in Madrid in the last round, so the team is still undefeated in La Liga. Meanwhile, the team also drew in the first round of the Champions League at home with Atalanta, so now they will hope for a repeat of the last-season's result against Man Utd in the Europa League final.

Team news and potential lineups for Man Utd vs Villarreal

The manager of Manchester United will have to make changes to replace Rashford and Diallo who will miss the upcoming Villarreal game due to injuries, while Maguire and Shaw are questionable after leaving the Aston Villa game over the weekend. Also, Wan-Bissaka is suspended, so we can expect Telles to start in his place.

Meanwhile, Villarreal will asses their top scorer Gerard Moreno to see if he can play after dealing with a muscle, while Chukwueze is also set to miss this game with a hip issue. On top of this, Coquelan is suspended after being sent off against Atalanta, so Villarreal will likely include Trigueros into their midfield for this match.

Man Utd potential starting lineup:
De Gea – Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Telles – McTominay, Fred – Fernandes, Greenwood, Pogba – Ronaldo

Villarreal potential starting lineup:
Rulli – Foyth, Albiol, Torres, A. Moreno – Parejo, Capoue, Trigueros – Alcacer, Danjuma, Pino
