UCL 2021 : Villarreal vs Manchester United Match Preview
Manchester United will be back in Champions League action against Villarreal on Thursday. This is the same Spanish side who frustrated them in last season’s Europa League final and made their season trophy less. This is going to be a must win tie that because of the competitiveness of Group F. United had already lost to Young Boys which has increased the competition more in this Group.
Manchester United are definitely struggling since last few matches and Villarreal will have an upper hand in this fixture. However, there is one twist in this story. The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford might reverse the result of this fixture. Ronaldo is already familiar to Villarreal and has already out shadowed their defense to score while he was in La Liga. Owing to Villarreal’s slower playstyle and deep defensive structure, Ronaldo is a player with the ability to pick open a lock. CR7 will be an automatic pick in Dream11 Team.
