When comparing the international successes of both clubs alone, a clear pattern can be seen. While Manchester can look back on two Champions League titles and a European Cup, as well as other trophies, Villarreal only won the UI Cup, which was abolished again, twice. At the national level, the Eastern Spaniards have never won a title, the Red Devils hold the record on the island with 20 championships.

But the 50,000-inhabitant city in the north of Valencia wants to create a miracle against all unequal conditions, in the semifinals the team of Unai Emery switched off his ex-club Arsenal.

Previously, the table seventh in the Spanish league won against RB Salzburg, Dynamo Kiev and Dinamo Zagreb.

The coach is also an old hand in competition, which he won three times in a row with Sevilla FC between 2014 and 2016 *.

On the way to the final, some high-profile players were also thrown out of the tournament, after successful knockout rounds against Real Sociedad, AC Milan and Granada, followed by high-scoring and one-sided semi-finals against AS Roma (6: 2, 2: 3).

After moving into the final, it should now work again with a title, since winning the Europa League and the League Cup in 2017, there has been no further sense of achievement.

The British have not experienced such a dry spell since the 1980s.

"Winning a trophy can make you believe, and it can also make you hungry for more," said United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the game. He knows a lot about finals himself, so he scored the winning goal for his current club in stoppage time in the legendary 1999 final against FC Bayern. Will the stars of Manchester United * usher in a new era with the title on Wednesday or will Villarreal grab the first big title in the club's history?
