UEFA Champions League

Great News to Man United Fans as Villarreal Lethal Striker is a Doubt For Champions League Clash

The UEFA Champions League tournament is set to return on Tuesday on our screens. The first games were played in the previous week where huge results were recorded. Teams will be seeking to improve on their previous results to boost their chances of qualifying for the next round of 16.

Manchester United will be welcoming Villarreal to Old Trafford on Wednesday night. The Red Devils will be seeking to avenge their disappointing loss to Unai Emery men during their encounter in last season's UEFA Europa League finals.

However, Ole Gunnar Solkjaer will be happy that their rivals may be missing one of their deadly attackers come Wednesday. Villarreal forward Gerald Moreno has been declared a doubt after the 29-year-old Spaniard missed the weekend clash with Real Madrid.

His absence was felt after the game ended with a goalless draw. Gerrard Moreno has been instrumental for his club netting 30 goals last season and also helping his country during the Euros games last summer.

Manchester United lost their opening games against Young Boys and they will be seeking to bounce back immediately to avoid the heartbreak of failing to qualify for the knockout stages.
