The statistics for the Europa League final
Manchester United won the Europa League final in the 2016 – 2017 season against AFC Ajax Amsterdam. This season, Manchester United beat AS Roma, which eliminated the Ajax players in the quarter-finals in the Europa League semi-final. Granada and AC Milan also had to bow to the team of trainer Solskjaer.
Villarreal participated eight times in the Europa League but has not yet won this prize. It could therefore be an extraordinary moment for trainer Emery’s team. Villarreal has already made an impression in the semi-final against Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb.
