The game will be the fifth UEFA Cup or Europa League final this century that sees a Spanish side face an English team, and history bodes well for Villarreal. Only in 2000/01 did an English team get the better of a Spanish opponent in the final, with Liverpool edging Alves then. Since, Sevilla have beaten Middlesbrough, Atletico Madrid have beaten Fulham and, most recently, Sevilla beat Liverpool in 2016.
Manchester United, meanwhile, fell into the competition at the knockout stages from the Champions League. Since, they’ve had to overcome Real Sociedad, Granada and Roma.
