UEFA Champions League picks for Villarreal vs. Manchester United
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the Manchester United vs. Villarreal picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season.
He’s also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Manchester United vs. Villarreal, Green is backing the under (2.5 goals) at +130 odds. These two teams met in the Europa League final in May, with Villarreal being crowned champions after edging out United in a shootout.
These two teams combined for just three shots on target in that matchup, and neither team has been in top scoring form entering Wednesday’s clash. In fact, Manchester United has failed to score a goal in each of its last two games. Villarreal has been held scoreless in two of its last three fixtures across all competitions.
“Villarreal’s star man Gerard Moreno is out injured, and his fellow forwards have been incapable of picking up the slack in his absence,” Green told SportsLine. “Villarreal has scored six times in six games this season, but four of them came in a 4-1 win against Elche.”
