Match background Only this chapter

Having scored crucial late goals in their last three matches, Group F leaders Manchester United go to Villarreal with the sides level on seven points.

• A Cristiano Ronaldo goal five minutes into added time gave United a 2-1 victory at home to Villarreal on 29 September, earning the English club a measure of revenge for their defeat on penalties against the Spanish side in last season's UEFA Europa League final. Paco Alcácer had put the visitors in front in the 53rd minute at Old Trafford, Alex Telles levelling seven minutes later.

• Ronaldo also scored late goals home (3-2) and away (2-2) against Atalanta on Matchdays 3 and 4 as United recovered from their 2-1 opening defeat at Young Boys. Villarreal, who were held 2-2 at home by Atalanta in their opening fixture, have since beaten YB 4-1 in Switzerland and 2-0 in Spain.

• United will go through if they beat Villarreal, or if both games in the group are drawn, while Villarreal will progress with a win if Atalanta do not beat Young Boys.

• On Sunday United parted company with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær with first-team coach Michael Carrick placed in temporary charge.

Previous meetings
• Gerard Moreno's 29th-minute opener for Villarreal was cancelled out by Edinson Cavani ten minutes into the second half at the Stadion Gdańsk in Poland on 26 May 2021, and with no further goals, the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League final went to penalties. Moreno, Dani Raba, Alcácer, Alberto Moreno, Dani Parejo, Moi Gómez, Raúl Albiol, Francis Coquelin, Mario Gaspar, Pau Torres and goalkeeper Gerónimo Rulli all converted for Villarreal; Juan Mata, Telles, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Cavani, Fred, Daniel James, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe and Victor Lindelöf did likewise for United before David de Gea's kick was saved by opposite number Rulli to give Villarreal their first major trophy.

• Villarreal and Manchester United had met in four European matches before that final – on each occasion in the UEFA Champions League group stage – and every one ended in a goalless draw.

• The first encounter in September 2005, which marked Villarreal's debut in the UEFA Champions League proper, was notable for the sending-off of visiting United striker Wayne Rooney. Another stalemate at Old Trafford two months later turned out to be costly for Sir Alex Ferguson's side as they would ultimately finish bottom of the group, ending a run of nine successive qualifications for the knockout phase, whereas Manuel Pellegrini's debutants finished top – despite scoring just three goals – and went on to reach the semi-finals, where they were beaten by Arsenal.

• Ferguson and Pellegrini were both still in charge as the clubs played out two further 0-0 draws three years later, the first at Old Trafford, where United began the defence of the trophy, the second at El Madrigal, where the outcome ensured both teams qualified for the next stage. Villarreal went on to reach the quarter-finals, again losing to Arsenal, while United made it all the way to another final only to lose 2-0 to another Spanish side, Barcelona, in Rome.

• Carrick played 86 minutes of United's 0-0 draw at Villarreal on 25 November 2008.

Form guide
Villarreal

• Seventh in the Spanish Liga in 2020/21, Villarreal's UEFA Europa League triumph means they are playing in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the fourth time, and the first since 2011/12.

• That most recent campaign was also their least successful, Villarreal losing all six games to finish bottom of a section that also included Bayern München, Napoli and Manchester City.

• The Yellow Submarine have twice reached the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds. Semi-finalists on debut in 2005/06, they made it to the quarter-finals three years later – both campaigns ended by Arsenal.

• Having lost none of their first 11 UEFA Champions League group games (W4 D7), Villarreal had been beaten in seven in a row before drawing with Atalanta on Matchday 1. The Matchday 3 win at Young Boys ended a run of 11 group games without a victory (D3 L8), since a 6-3 home win against Aalborg on Matchday 3 in 2008/09.

• That defeat of Aalborg was also Villarreal's last home win in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, before they beat YB last time out. Their record between those two wins was D4 L3; however, they won all six home games in last season's UEFA Europa League and are now unbeaten in eight home European matches (W7 D1).

• In 2020/21, Unai Emery's team cruised to first place in UEFA Europa League Group I ahead of Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Sivasspor and Qarabağ to reach the round of 32 for the eighth time before comfortably disposing of UEFA Champions League group stage participants Salzburg (2-0 a, 2-1 h) and Dynamo Kyiv (2-0 a, 2-0 h). They also won both quarter-final matches against Dinamo Zagreb (1-0 a, 2-1 h) and then knocked out Emery's former employers Arsenal in the semi-final (2-1 h, 0-0 a) before beating United in Gdańsk. Villarreal were undefeated in Europe in 2020/21 with 11 wins and three draws.

• The defeat of United came in Villarreal's first major European final, though they were twice winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup (2003, 2004) having finished as runners-up in 2002.

• This is Villarreal's sixth European game of the season; they were defeated 6-5 on penalties by UEFA Champions League holders Chelsea after a 1-1 draw in the UEFA Super Cup on 11 August in Belfast.

• With that counted as a draw, defeat at United on Matchday 2 ended Villarreal's 26-match unbeaten run against non-Spanish opposition in European matches (W16 D10), since a 1-0 loss at home to Lyon in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 second leg.

• Villarreal's overall record against English clubs is W5 D9 L6. They have won four of their nine home games against Premier League visitors, suffering only one defeat – against United's neighbours Manchester City in the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League group stage (0-3).

Manchester United
• United are making their 24th appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage, an English record, with Arsenal (19) second on that list and Chelsea (18) third. Overall, only Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 26) and Porto and Bayern München (both 25) have featured more often.

• The Red Devils have qualified for the knockout phase on 18 occasions, also an English record, although they missed out in 2020/21.

• Solskjær's side finished third in their section in 2020/21 behind Paris Saint-Germain and Leipzig, a 3-2 loss in Germany on Matchday 6 enabling the latter to leapfrog United into second place.

• United therefore moved into the UEFA Europa League, beating Real Sociedad (4-0 a, 0-0 h), AC Milan (1-1 h, 1-0 a), Granada (2-0 a, 2-0 h) and Roma (6-2 h, 2-3 a) en route to their final defeat against Villarreal.

• United had lost three successive away games in the UEFA Champions League before drawing at Atalanta, and have now been beaten in five of the last eight; the other two games in that sequence were both wins at Paris Saint-Germain.

• Ronaldo is one of three players to have found the net in all four matches, along with Ajax's Sébastien Haller and Robert Lewandowski of Bayern.

• The Manchester club have won their UEFA Champions League section 15 times, although only once since 2013/14.

• United finished second in the Premier League in 2020/21, 12 points behind local rivals Manchester City.

• European Cup winners in 1968, United lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy in 1999 and 2008, also reaching the final in 2009 and 2011 – the latter four all under Sir Alex Ferguson.

• Solskjær's side faced Spanish clubs five times in 2020/21, all in the UEFA Europa League. The 2-0 away win against Granada in the quarter-finals is one of only four victories in their 27 games in Spain (D11 L12)

• Despite beating Villarreal on Matchday 2, United have still won only 17 of their 63 UEFA matches against Spanish opposition (D24 L22) though, with the final counted as a draw, they were unbeaten in all five last season (W3 D2), scoring nine goals and conceding only one, Moreno's strike in the final. However, their last four European campaigns have all ended in defeat by Liga opposition – Sevilla in both the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (0-0 a, 1-2 h) and 2019/20's one-off UEFA Europa League semi-final in Cologne (1-2), and Barcelona in the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League quarter-final (0-1 h, 0-3 a) in addition to last season's defeat by Villarreal.

Links and trivia
• Emery replaced long-serving Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger in May 2018 and oversaw 78 matches for the Gunners until his dismissal in November 2019. He was unbeaten in three Premier League games against United, drawing twice away (2-2 and 1-1) and winning once at home (2-0). However, his Arsenal side were defeated 3-1 at home by Solskjær's United in the fourth round of the 2018/19 FA Cup.

• The two coaches also locked horns in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 32 as Emery's Sevilla overcame Solskjær's Molde (3-0 h, 0-1 a) en route to completing their title hat-trick.

• In their seven head-to-head contests overall Solskjær has three wins to Emery's two, with two draws, including last season's UEFA Europa League final.

• United defender Eric Bailly joined from Villarreal in 2016 after 18 months with the Spanish club. He was a UEFA Europa League winner in 2017 though missed the final through suspension.

Latest news

Villarreal
• Having been undefeated in their first seven league games of the season (W2 D5), Villarreal have lost three of their last six, although they were 1-0 winners at home to Getafe on 9 November.

• Manu Trigueros scored the only goal in that game, his third in this season's Liga – as many as in his previous three campaigns combined.

• Villarreal drew 1-1 at Celta Vigo on Saturday, Alberto Moreno opening the scoring with his second Liga goal of 2021/22; it is the first time since 2014/15 he has found the net more than once in a league campaign.

• The defeat of Getafe ended a run of four league games without a victory (D1 L3); Villarreal have drawn seven of their 13 Liga fixtures in 2021/22 (W3 L3).

• Villarreal have won just five matches in all competitions this season (D9 L4).

• Pervis Estupiñan scored in Ecuador's 2-0 FIFA World Cup qualifying victory away to Chile on 16 November.

• On 4 October, former Tottenham defender Serge Aurier joined Villarreal as a free agent, signing a contract until the end of the season with the option for a two-year extension. He is ineligible for the UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Moreno is on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, with the winner to be announced on 29 November.

Manchester United
• Cristiano Ronaldo's Matchday 4 appearance was his 180th in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, extending his own competition record. He had gone ahead of Iker Casillas's previous best of 177 in the second round of games.

• United have lost seven of their last 13 games in all competitions (W4 D2), including five of their last seven in the Premier League. They were beaten 4-1 at Watford on Saturday, their heaviest defeat against a promoted club since a 5-1 loss at Manchester City in September 1989.

• That proved to be Ole Gunnar Solskjær's last match in charge, with the Norwegian being dismissed the following morning. He had been appointed, initially on an interim basis, in December 2018 to succeed José Mourinho, and was made permanent manager four months later.

• Donny van de Beek scored United's goal at the weekend, his first for the club since his Premier League debut, a 3-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace on 19 September 2020.

• Harry Maguire was sent off for two bookings at Watford, the first red card of his United career in his 121st game.

• Ronaldo has nine goals in 13 appearances for United since rejoining the club this summer.

• Solskjær's side were beaten 5-0 at Old Trafford by Liverpool on 24 October, the first time they had conceded five goals at home without scoring themselves since February 1955.

• It was also the first time United had been 4-0 down at half-time in the Premier League era.

• United have conceded 19 goals in their last seven games. They have shipped 29 in all competitions this season; only Norwich and Leicester (30) have let in more among Premier League sides.

• A 4-2 loss at Leicester on 16 October was United's first away league defeat in 30 games, since a 2-0 reverse at Liverpool in January 2020, and the first time they had conceded four goals in an away league game since a 4-0 loss at Everton in April 2019.

• A 2-1 win at West Ham on 19 September was United's 29th successive away league game without defeat (W19 D10), extending the new English Football League record they had set with a 1-0 victory at Wolves on 29 August before it was ended at Leicester.

• Maguire became England's highest-scoring defender with his goals in a 5-0 victory against Albania on 12 November and a 10-0 success in San Marino three days later, results that confirmed England's place at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Maguire now has seven international goals.

• Victor Lindelöf's 50th cap for Sweden ended in disappointment on 14 November as a 1-0 Spain victory consigned the Scandinavian side to the World Cup play-offs.

• Fred played the first half on 11 November as Brazil beat Colombia 1-0 to reach next year's finals.

• Ronaldo twice played 90 minutes for Portugal as they drew 0-0 in the Republic of Ireland on 11 November three days before a 2-1 home defeat by Serbia that forced them into the World Cup play-offs. Bruno Fernandes started in Ireland and was a substitute against Serbia, while Diogo Dalot played 90 minutes in Dublin.

• Raphaël Varane suffered an adductor strain in France's 2-1 win against Spain in the UEFA Nations League final on 10 October, returning to play 90 minutes of the 3-0 win at Tottenham on 30 October. However, he had to be replaced on Matchday 4 after picking up a thigh injury and has not played since.

• Paul Pogba, whose last appearance came at Atalanta on 2 November, has been sidelined by a thigh problem.

• Edinson Cavani has also been out since Matchday 4 with a tendon injury.

• Scott McTominay missed Scotland's internationals with a throat virus; he started United's weekend loss at Watford but was withdrawn at half-time.

• Amad Diallo has not played this season due to a thigh injury.

• Fernandes and Ronaldo are both on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, with the winner to be announced on 29 November.

• On 7 October Rashford received an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester; he collected a Member of the British Empire (MBE) on 9 November.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• Chelsea in 2012/13 are the only defending champions to fail to get through a group stage since the UEFA Champions League began. (This record, like the others, includes the seasons between 1999/2000 and 2002/03 that featured a second group stage). In 1992/93, Barcelona were the reigning European Champion Clubs' Cup holders and lost 4-3 on aggregate in the second round to CSKA Moskva.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid then made it three wins in a row in 2017/18, becoming the fourth club to win three or more successive titles in European Cup history, and the first to do it twice.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern München were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

• Bayern's victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final was their 11th successive win in the competition (18 September 2019 to 23 August 2020), setting a new record that they extended to 15 before being held at Atlético de Madrid on Matchday 5 in 2020/21. Bayern themselves (2 April 2013 to 27 November 2013) and Real Madrid (23 April 2014 to 18 February 2015) jointly held the previous best with ten, one more than Barcelona's winning run between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.

Group stage
• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 21 occasions, four more than Real Madrid and Bayern München and six more than Manchester United. Barça also hold the record for the most unbeaten group stage campaigns with 13, five more than Real Madrid.

• Seven teams have recorded six successive victories in a UEFA Champions League group stage: Milan (1992/93), Paris Saint-Germain (1994/95), Spartak Moskva (1995/96), Barcelona (2002/03, first group stage), Real Madrid (2011/12 and 2014/15) and Bayern (2019/20).

• Twenty-one teams have gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without picking up a single point, most recently AEK Athens in 2018/19.

• In 2017/18, Paris Saint-Germain set a new group stage record by scoring 25 goals, one more than Bayern München managed in 2019/20. Liverpool are next on the list having scored 23 in 2017/18 with Borussia Dortmund hitting 21 in 2016/17. Manchester United (1998/99), Barcelona (2011/12, 2016/17) and Real Madrid (2013/14) all managed 20.

• Only Deportivo La Coruña (2004/05), Maccabi Haifa (2009/10) and Dinamo Zagreb (2016/17) have failed to score in a group stage.

• BATE Borisov conceded 24 goals in 2014/15, a new group stage record which was matched by Legia Warszawa in 2016/17. The previous mark, 22, was held by Dinamo Zagreb (2011/12) and Nordsjælland (2012/13).

• No team has ever gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without conceding a goal. Milan (1992/93), Ajax (1995/96), Juventus (1996/97 and 2004/05), Chelsea (2005/06), Liverpool (2005/06), Villarreal (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11), Monaco (2014/15), Paris Saint-Germain (2015/16), Barcelona (2017/18) and Manchester City (2020/21) all let in just one.

• Matchday 6 of 2013/14 marked FCSB's 23rd successive game in the competition without a victory, surpassing the previous record of 22 set by Spartak Moskva between December 2000 and November 2006.

• Marseille hold the record for successive defeats in the competition, group stage to final, having lost 13 in a row between March 2012 and November 2020. The 2-0 loss at home to Porto on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 competition surpassed Anderlecht's previous competition record of 12 losses in a row between December 2003 and November 2005. Dinamo Zagreb are next with 11 consecutive losses on two occasions, from September 2011 to November 2012 and September 2015 to December 2016.

• The lowest total for a team qualifying from the group stage is six points: Zenit in 2013/14 and Roma in 2015/16. Since three points for a win was introduced in 1995/96, ten teams have made it through with seven points: Legia Warszawa (1995/96), Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000), Liverpool (2001/02, second group stage), Lokomotiv Moskva (2002/03, first group stage) and eventual finalists Juventus (2002/03, second group stage), Rangers and Werder Bremen (2005/06), Galatasaray (2013/14), Basel (2014/15) and Atalanta (2019/20).

• Napoli failed to qualify from their group with 12 points in 2013/14, the highest total of any team not to reach the next stage when the top two in each section progressed. Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000, second group stage), Borussia Dortmund (2002/03, second group stage), PSV Eindhoven (2003/04), Olympiacos and Dynamo Kyiv (both 2004/05), Werder Bremen (2006/07), Manchester City (2011/12), Chelsea and Cluj (both 2012/13), Benfica (2013/14), Porto (2015/16) and Ajax (2019/20) all missed out with ten points.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Fifteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Sébastien Haller for Ajax at Sporting CP on Matchday 1 in 2021/22. That was the fifth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20 and Olivier Giroud did likewise for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, Messi got ten goals in 2016/17, a figure matched by Robert Lewandowski in 2019/20; Ronaldo (2013/14, 2017/18) and Luiz Adriano (2014/15) scored nine while Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03), Lewandowski (2018/19) and Erling Braut Haaland (2019/20) all managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on Matchday 6 in 2007/08 aged 43 years 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
