Why bet on Villareal?
The Spanish Primera Division squad lost their last match to Real Madrid. But losing to Real isn’t that big of a deal. Villareal had no shot at winning La Liga. Resting players before an important game is often the way to go. If we look at what Villareal did in their two matches before battling Real Madrid, it’s obvious they can beat a team like Manchester United.
Villareal Last 5

- W – 4-0 vs. Sevilla
- W – 0-2 vs. Real Valladolid
- L – 2-4 vs. Celta Vigo
- D – 0-0 vs. Arsenal
Villareal Predicted Starting Lineup
Why bet on Manchester United?
United isn’t in great form, but there’s a reason. Man U’s primary English Premier League rival, Manchester City, won the EPL weeks ago. As soon as the Sky Blues took the Premier Championship, United turned their attention to this match. Beating Villareal is Manchester United’s shot to win a season title. They won’t let the chance pass them by.
Man United Last 5 as of May 21
- D – 1-1 vs. Fulham
- L – 2-4 vs. Liverpool
- L 1-2 vs. Leicester City
- W – 1-3 vs. Aston Villa

Villareal versus Manchester United Final Betting Prediction
Man United’s last victory happened on May 9. Although plenty of soccer clubs take it easy in meaningless matches, especially in Premier League matches this season because Man City had a close to 30 points lead heading into the final month of play, playing so poorly before a championship game is never ideal.
United must pick it up both physically and mentally if they wish to get by tough Villareal. Falling to Leicester on May 11, losing by 2 goals to Liverpool, and then drawing with Premier League doormat Fulham in their match on May 18 isn’t ideal.
Man U plays Wolverhampton on May 23. If they show some life in that match, give them a chance versus Villareal. If they don’t, Villareal is the play. The La Liga squad threw down against Real Madrid in their final Primera Division battle even though they had nothing to play for.
Villareal is a good team that always plays hard. So unless you see something in Man U in their Sunday match against the Wanderers, the La Liga team is the one to back.
