Episode 96: Live: Villarreal v Manchester Utd


Villarreal v Manchester United (Kick-off 8.00pm). All the action from the final, which comes from Stadion Miejski in Gdansk, Poland. Villarreal are appearing in a European final for the first time in their history, having overcome Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals after previously eliminating Red Bull Salzburg, Dynamo Kiev and Dinamo Zagreb in the knockout stages. United have already beaten two Spanish outfits in Real Sociedad and Granada, as well as Italian sides AC Milan and AS Roma, and are now looking to lift this trophy for the second time, having prevailed against Ajax in the 2017 final


Given who is in charge of Villarreal, it’s almost a surprise that Manchester United go into this match as favourites. Tonight marks former Arsenal and Sevilla coach Unai Emery’s fifth Europa League final, and with three past triumphs to his name, no one has won more. 
But United arrive in Gdansk full of confidence, fresh from drubbing Roma 8—5 over two legs in the semi-final. In search of his first trophy as United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leads a side with flair and firepower in spades, but above all he’ll look to senior players such as Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani for inspiration.
