Head to Head

After drawing their first five meetings, including last season's Europa League final which Villarreal won on penalties, Man United were 2-1 winners at Old Trafford earlier in the group stages.

Paco Alcacer put the La Liga side in front before Alex Telles equalised and Cristiano Ronaldo scored a 95th minute winner.

Villarreal Form

Villarreal find themselves level with Man United at the top of Group F after recording back-to-back wins over Young Boys.

Unai Emery’s side picked up just a point from their first two games, but defeated Young Boys 4-1 away and 2-0 at home.

The Yellow Submarine followed the win over Young Boys with a 1-0 victory over Getafe in La Liga. They were held to a 1-1 draw at Celta Vigo on Saturday.

Villarreal Team News

Forward Gerard Moreno remains Villarreal's only injury absentee. Serge Aurier is ineligible.

Man United Form

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was sacked after Saturday's embarassing 4-1 defeat at Watford for 10-man United, who had Harry Maguire sent off.

It was a second straight defeat for the Red Devils after going down tamely 2-0 to rivals Man City in the Manchester derby.

United are top in Group F after recovering from defeat to Young Boys by beating Villarreal 2-1 and Atalanta 3-2 thanks to late goals. 

United also needed a late leveller from Cristiano Ronaldo to draw 2-2 with Atalanta last time.

Man United Team News

Defender Raphael Varane, midfielder Paul Pogba and forward Mason Greenwood are all out.

Left-back Luke Shaw and forward Edinson Cavani are rated doubtful once again.

Harry Maguire is available for the Champions League despite his sending-off on Saturday.

Will United get the bounce factor following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer? It will take more than a new man at the helm to solve United's defensive problems and I'm tipping Villarreal to edge a 2-1 victory at home with BTTS tipped.
