A Europa League final live stream is the best way to ensure you catch the biggest European club soccer game of the season thus far. It's a big but intriguing clash too with Man Utd finally getting into a final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Villarreal being a side that would be mistakenly underrated or taken for granted, particularly with Unai Emery steering the ship.

Manchester United have been serial semi-finalists under Ole, but have finally made it through to a big final and a chance at major silverware. They will fancy their chances given the firepower and squad depth available to them, even if they are likely without defensive talisman Captain Slab Head himself in Harry Maguire. The likes of Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, and youngster Mason Greenwood will absolutely make sure that the Villarreal defense will their hands full, offering a lively mix of flair, creativity, pace, and power.

Standing in their way though are the underdogs, Villarreal. This team, despite that underrated status, is also well set to get their hands on the trophy too. Their manager, Unai Emery, has an excellent previous record in this competition winning it three times on the bounce with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016. Plus they are unbeaten in Europe this season and have an enormous pool of talent to rely on - albeit maybe slightly lacking in outright pace.
