Both teams to score at Villarreal vs Manchester United 1/1 for Wednesday’s Europa League Final

Competition: Europa League Final

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

With all roads leading to the Stadion Energa Gdańsk, Manchester United and Villarreal will face off in the Europa League Final on Wednesday night out in Poland.

Starting with Villarreal, while the Spanish outfit might have put in a spirited display away at now-former champions Real Madrid over the weekend, it was real heartbreak on the road for Unai Emery’s side. Missing out on a chance to land themselves another top-six finish in La Liga, The Yellow Submarine were eventually hit with a shocking 2-1 defeat on the road. Shipping a pair of goals in the final few minutes, they have shown some inconsistencies since opening May. Despite coming past Emery’s former employers Arsenal thanks to a 2-1 aggregate win earlier in the month, they have landed just a pair of wins from their last five matchups across all formats. Despite bouncing back from that 4-2 defeat against Celta Vigo with an eye-catching romping victory against Sevilla, Villarreal will know that they must make some improvements at the back if they’re to cause a real upset in midweek.

As for the Premier League giants, after electing to make a string of changes on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United would have been glad to end their mini rut. Eventually grabbing a 2-1 victory away at Wolves on the final weekend, The Reds know that all eyes will be on them out in Poland. Knowing that this is a golden chance to lift a first piece of silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have shown some worrying issues at the back towards the end of the campaign. Highlighted by those back-to-back 2-1 and 4-2 defeats against Leicester and Liverpool at Old Trafford earlier in the month, it’s well worth highlighting that Solskjaer’s side have failed to record a single clean sheet in any of their last seven straight contests across all formats. Unlikely to be able to call upon defensive star Harry Maguire in midweek, we’re backing both teams to find the net.
