You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips for this match on this page.

Manchester United need to get back to top form

Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United gave positive vibes to the club and the Portuguese went on to a flying start. However, the results are not as the fans desire. Firstly, a surprise defeat in the UCL opening match was unforeseen. Then, an EFL Cup elimination by West Ham with the second team on the pitch. And finally, a home defeat to Aston Villa kept the Red Devils’ fans in dismay.

Now, and as they host Villarreal, Solskjaer’s team need to grab all three points at all cost. During their match against Aston Villa, United players looked out of place. Indeed, United dominated the game with 59% ball possession and 28 goal attempts, and a missed penalty by Fernandez. However, a defensive mistake in a corner cost them three points. As a result, Solskjaer needs his team in top form for this crucial UCL fixture.

Manchester United Key points

  • United lost their last two home matches
  • In their last five home matches, United scored on average 2.25 goals
  • The Red Devils failed to score in two of their last ten games

Villarreal showing some great football lately

Villarreal are playing in the Champions League after winning the Europa League last season. Incidentally, they beat Manchester United in the final and travel to Old Trafford with hopes of repeating that win. During the weekend, the Yellow Submarines had an impressive performance at the Santiago Bernabeu against La Liga leaders Real Madrid. 

In fact, Unai Emery’s team were better in much of the game against Real and could pull off a huge upset. But Moreno and co couldn’t convert the chances they had to goals. In the end, to settle for a draw was satisfactory for Emery. If Villarreal can perform in the same way at Old Trafford, they can be a very tough opponent for United.

Villarreal key points

  • The Yellow Submarines are undefeated in their last five away games
  • Villarreal scored in two of their last five away games
  • In their last five away games, under 2.5 goals were produced in four

Manchester United vs Villarreal Prediction 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to regroup his team quickly before this crucial UCL fixture. Obviously, to get the much-needed victory, United has to play offensively. That could leave spaces at the back in which the visitors might exploit. Thus balance is key.

Moreover, Unai Emery is very experienced in these circumstances and has the capability and players to deal with such games. The proof was Villarreal’s performance in Madrid last weekend where they controlled large parts of the game.

The bookies are favoring a United win with odds of 1.49 at Vbet. Also, over 2.5 goals has odds of 1.67 meaning a high-scoring game is expected. However, we have mixed feelings for this one as we sense a low-scoring game. Thus we will choose two different markets for our tips.
