Manchester United predicted lineup vs Villarreal CF, Preview, Prediction, Latest Team News, Livestream: UCL 2021/22 Gameweek 2
Premier League giants Manchester United will be looking to set the records straight in their UCL campaign, as Alley Sport brings Manchester United predicted lineup vs Villarreal CF and insights to their upcoming UEFA Champions League Group F encounter.
The arrival of high-profile players during the summer transfer window has given a lift to everyone associated with the club. The signings of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane along with the return of the prodigal son, Cristiano Ronaldo has all United supporters and players buzzing with positivity. They have started their bid for a Premier League title on a positive note, sitting as joint leaders with Chelsea and Liverpool. Despite such positivity, they made an unconvincing start to their UEFA Champions League group stage campaign.
Manchester United predicted lineup vs Villarreal CF: Preview
The Reds had made a great start to their Champions League campaign going in the lead courtesy of a Ronaldo goal in the 13th minute away from home against Young Boys. The match then turned for the worse when right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red and Young Boys equalizing in the 66th minute with their forward Ngamaleu.
The game was then anyone’s for the taking with United showing signs of securing a valuable point. But a casual Jesse Lingard back-pass gifted the Young Boys victory for their effort and persistence. On Matchday 2, United will be facing a Villarreal side who they met in last year’s UEFA Europa League final, losing 11-10 on penalties. But this time all 3 points will be up for grabs in this all-important clash for Manchester United.
Manchester United vs Villarreal CF: Prediction
Manchester United will be the favorites going into the tie because they have been in a great run form in the league with the likes of Ronaldo, Fernandes, and Pogba leading the charge. My prediction for the game would be a close-fought contest ending in a 2-0 victory for the Reds in Manchester, as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and his team will be looking to go deep into the competition of Europe’s finest. Villarreal is a team capable of springing up surprise results, something United will be quite wary about, with their supreme defensive style of football. But the talent within this United squad makes them favorites any night against any team among Europe’s top leagues.
