Manchester United vs Villarreal Betting Tips

Manchester United are playing against Villarreal in the Old Trafford, Manchester on the 30th of September 2021, Thursday at 00:30 IST. After the shocking defeat against the Young Boys, the Red Devils are back at their home to face Spanish Villarreal.

Manchester United Form and Team News

Man United have started this season in the Champions League with a loss at the hands of the Young Boys team last week. The Cristiano Ronaldo goal was undone by two goals from the opponent. In the last season, Manchester United ignited some fire brand football on certain occasions which gave out the impression that they were truly on the comeback trail, but like the case of Arsenal, the transition is on a never-ending sojourn. Manchester United’s recent form has not been that great compared to the rivals, also add to the fact that they haven’t won against the Villarreal side who they are going to face as well. They have won five games and lost just three games in the last ten they have played while a game ended in a draw. Manchester United surely have everything in their favour now, and winning championships should be the only priority from here on.

Cristiano is back in the house!! He ignited the Old Trafford in the last game with a brace to his name. Ole had a big purse this summer and he has brought in two superstar players in Sancho and Varane. If Sancho is able to hold the reputation of being the force that he used to be in the right wing at Dortmund, then, Man United could be in for a lot of goals down that flank along with help from Cavani, Rashford and CR7 joining them. Talisman Pogba has made a stellar start with seven assists in just the five league games played. Bruno too has made an impact with his accurate ball play and control. 

Villarreal Form and Team News

Villarreal have been lack luster in the first against Atalanta. They were held to a two each draw at the end of it. Villarreal have not lost so far in the league, considering how they played last season, that’s a decent start. Though its early doors, Villarreal have drawn quite a few games. They haven’t lost as of yet. Villarreal in the last season finished just outside the top six positions in the 7thposition. They played decently throughout the season and with that had they been able to replicate what they are doing now, but not for the number of draws, they could’ve finished much higher. They are playing their next game against Manchester United away. Villarreal’s recent form hasn’t been great. They won their first game in about ten games in one of the last two games against Elche which would be the best confidence booster going ahead into the high-octane clash against the Red Devils.

Gerard Moreno, Paco Alcacer and BoulayeDia combined with Danjuma, Pino and Raba form the attack line. If they happen to put in performances of substance like how did they did in the game against Elche, then this Villarreal team could be in for some real haunt. Spanish coach Unai Emery needs to balance this team out and try to get the best out of them by allowing them to play freely and see what happens from there on. He has made a good start nonetheless and we need to see as to how they carry themselves in the next game.
