United’s time or first-time lucky for Villarreal?
Manchester United will be aiming for their first title in four years.
United’s last trophy came in the 2016-17 Europa League under Jose Mourinho when it became just the fifth club to win all three major UEFA competitions.
But they are up against Villarreal, who have lost four previous European semi-finals before throwing Arsenal in the final four and who are unbeaten in the tournament this season.
