The pair will meet in a rematch of the Europa League final in May, a match decided by a lengthened penalty shoot-out that ultimately fell in the way of the Spanish club after Geronimo Rulli kept out opponent David De Gea’s penalty. . Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a surprise loss to the Young Boys in Switzerland, a game in which Aaron Wan-Bissaka was fired.

After back-to-back losses at home to West Ham and Aston Villa, Solskjaer can’t afford another slip in front of a crowd demanding success after a summer of investing. Unai Emery has established himself as a specialist in the Europa League, but will bring a well-organized Villarreal to Manchester.

Their first Group F match was an entertaining affair against Atalanta that ended 2-2, although the Spanish team had their own man sent off in the match, with substitute Francis Coquelin twice booked shortly after joining affairs and for therefore also suspended for this game.
