Villarreal vs. Manchester United will meet at the UEFA Europa League final in Gdansk (Stadion Energa) on Wednesday, May 26, kick-off at 3:00 pm EST.
This is a chance for United to finally win a trophy in the Solskjær era, but he is opposed to a European League specialist in Unai Emery.

The Emerging Factor
Villarreal reached the finals thanks to a narrow 2-1 overall win over Arsenal and United had a significantly easier passage to the showpiece on Wednesday with a total 8-5 win over Roma. United also has a national edge, ending their EPL campaign with a 2-1 over Wolves on the weekend, while the same Villarreal scored against Real Madrid on their last day.
The Unai Emery factor is what Villareal has in his favor, as this will be his fifth Europa League final. It's a competition that he won three times in his management career – 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Huge Yellow Submarine Incentive
The Yellow Submarine has, of course, the biggest incentive to win here, given that Real Madrid's defeat left them seventh in the final table in the Liga and only in line for their place at the opening UEFA conference league – the least prestigious in European races. When they win on Wednesday they are automatically eligible for the Champions League next season. United, who finished second in the EPL, qualified already for UCL next season.
From the point of view of the W88club, they have recently succeeded in feeding off this competition, and Jose Mourinho's Man United team ended Emery's 3 consecutive Europa League victories in May 2017 by beating Ajax 2-0 in Stockholm. It was also the last time United raised silverware.
Solskjær Trophy Pressure
United will be fresh for this game after Ole Gunnar Solskjær led the much-changed Wolves team of academy and fringe players to protect his big names, not risk injury. It also paid off as young people in conjunction with the older bosses did a good job, with goals from Anthony Elanga and Juan Mata as the Reds finished the domestic season high.
Even with a preliminary team, it was a quick boost, because the United EPL season had threatened to peter out without a whimper – they had only taken one point from the last nine – but in this winning sense they went to Gdansk as opposed to their Spanish opponents.
Starting together as favorites
United begins this game as a favorite at W88– a position they have been in since they joined this competition, after they were knocked out at the group stage. In doing so, they now have the opportunity to emulate Chelsea, which back in 2013, after being eliminated from Europe's elite tournament, was the first and the only English team to win Europa League.
It gives Solskjaer the opportunity to finally receive a trophy and this will help to alleviate some of the fears of his detractors. The United faithful have the feeling that while the Norwegian is honored with his accomplishments while wearing the United Red, he still has to prove himself in technical areas and will test his credentials against one of the best and on the large stage.
Villarreal versus Manchester United Bets
The Emery factor cannot be overlooked here and if it results in a tactical battle between him and Solskjær, a Villarreal victory is a true possibility. The Spaniard knows exactly what it takes to win this trophy, while the Norwegian only triumphs in his management resume in the Norwegian Cup.
So, in terms of value, there's nobody to get on with the United win – they're odd – but as this is a tight, edgy game, the draw looks good on 90 minutes at +245. Edinson Cavani is also worth a shout at +440 to be the first goal scorer. However, W88 says that don't be surprised if Villarreal wins after 120 minutes.
WW88's Pick: Villarreal and Manchester United drawing the first goal after 90 minutes (+245) / Cavani (+440)
