Michael Owen gives Manchester United vs Villarreal Champions League prediction – Manchester Evening News

Michael Owen has given his prediction ahead of Manchester United‘s Champions League fixture with Villarreal on Wednesday.

United will be looking to bounce back coming off the back of three losses in their last four games – one of which being against Young Boys in their first group game of the tournament.

United currently sit bottom of the group, after Villarreal gained a point against Atalanta earlier this month.

They’ll likely go into the game with three of their regular defensive starters unavailable – with Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka ruled out and Luke Shaw only likely to make the bench after picking up a knock. Marcus Rashford and Amad also remain out.

Villarreal could be without two key men themselves with Gerard Moreno ruled out and Samuel Chukwueze facing a late fitness test.

Ahead of the game, Michael Owen has given his predictions to Bet Victor.

Owen said: “This is a must win game for United after some disappointing results. The defeat to Young Boys on matchday one was a shock and ultimately one that Solskjaer must feel was preventable.

“Ronaldo’s signing galvanised the club but after a couple of bad results, the pressure is back on Ole.

“Villarreal are an organised side but have had a strange start to their La Liga season, drawing five of their first six.

“Unai Emery is obviously an experienced manager in Europe, but I think United will have too much for them.

“I’m going 2-0 United.”
