Opinion: Reasons Why Manchester United May Tumble Villarreal In The UEFA Champions League


Manchester United will welcome the UEFA Champions League back to Old Trafford on Wednesday, as they prepare to face Villarreal in one of the most anticipated Champions League matches. 

When the Red Devils play Villarreal for their second game in the UEFA Champions League, all eyes will be on a'vengeance quest' against the Spanish underdogs. Manchester United and Villarreal will meet in European play for the second season in a row, and the Red Devils will not be content with a draw this time, with all eyes on victory, given how critical this game is for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team. 

Manchester United's previous encounter with Villarreal reportedly ended in a nightmare for the latter, but the Red Devils are determined to put Unai Emery's side to the test when they meet for the sixth time in European tournaments on Wednesday. We came up with solid reasons why Manchester United could beat Villarreal at Old Trafford prior to the match. 

For starters, when the ‘Yellow Submarine' comes to Manchester for one of their UEFA Champions League group stage fixtures, Old Trafford will never be an easy place to visit. Manchester United are prepared to visit Villarreal for the second consecutive season in the UEFA Champions League, following a poor match in Gdansk. 

The Red Devils will be looking for their first three points in the Champions League this time around, so it will be a game with high stakes. For opponents like Villarreal, Old Trafford is never an easy place to visit, especially at this stage in the season when Manchester United is determined to win a game against a Villarreal team that denied them silverware last season. 

Manchester United has been urged to win against their Wednesday visitors at Old Trafford in their first home game of the UEFA Champions League this season, and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side playing at home to Villarreal, the latter is tipped as the favorite to claim revenge against Unai Emery's side on Wednesday. Punters and pundits know it won't be an easy game for either Manchester United or Villarreal, but the Red Devils remain the favorites at Old Trafford as they face the Spanish darkhorse. 

Second, when Villarreal travels to Old Trafford on Wednesday, they will face a different Manchester United side. Without a doubt, Villarreal will face Manchester United for the second season in a row, and we can assure you that the ‘Yellow Submarine' will face a totally different Manchester United team than the one who defeated them in Gdansk. 

With Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane preparing to face Villarreal in front of their adoring supporters at Old Trafford, Manchester United will be a completely different team. Villarreal recently defeated a young squad in Gdansk and defeated Manchester United. 

Villarreal will face a very different team on Wednesday than the one that upset Manchester United last season. Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane are all fit to give their Champions League opponents a challenging game at Old Trafford, and we are confident and hopeful of a win over Villarreal in the midweek.
