    FT: Villarreal 0-2 Man Utd!!! All over in Spain and despite being second best for 70 minutes, Man Utd picked up in the last 20 and Ronaldo scored in the 78th minute after a mistake by GK Rulli and then Sancho sealed the win in the 90th minute with a lovely strike. Man Utd are through while Villarreal are likely going to have to go to Italy and beat Atalanta on the last day to go through (unless Y Boys do something tonight). Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!

    Man Utd sub: Sancho is off and Mata is on.

    What a chance for Ronaldo! A ball forward sees Foyth try and head back to his GK, but it's woefully underhit and Ronaldo puts it wide.
  • 83'
    Chance for Villarreal now, but it comes to nothing.
  • 82'
    Capoue was put under so much pressure by his own GK. He had Fred on him before he even realised. Definitely Rulli's fault.
  • 81'
    Man Utd get a corner, but it comes to nothing.
  • 80'
    Man U are going through as it stands.
  • 79'

de Man. Utd en el 78'

    Ronaldo puts United ahead after a GK howler!! Rulli passes the ball along the ground to Capoue who is under instant pressure from Fred, the United man nips in to win the ball and Ronaldo chips Rulli who is off his line.

  • 73'
    Villarreal double sub: Moreno on for Trigueros and Chukwueze replaces Pino.
  • 72'
    Ronaldo is very unhappy after having handball called against him. I think he was right.

    Great play by Man U involving Sancho and Fernandes and the GK makes a fine stop!
  • 69'
    A long ball forward for Rashford sees him miscontrol, but he was offside.
  • 66'
    Man Utd double sub: B Fernandes on for Van de Beek and Rashford comes on for Martial.
  • 65'
    Villarreal continue to threaten and Gomez earns the corner.

    Danjuma!! Pino attacks, the ball is given by Gomez to Danjuma who blazes over.
  • 59'
    Trigueros!!! Gomez's shot is blocked by a defender and Trigueros on the rebound is denied by a brilliant De Gea!

    This game looks like it will end 0-0 as neither side wants to lose.

    Fred has a pop and Rulli easily holds.
  • 53'

  • 46'
    Villarreal get us going again here!
  • 45'
    HT: Villarreal 0-0 Man Utd!! Half-time in Villarreal and the hosts have been the better team. 0-0 is fair as both teams have played with caution, but Trigueros possibly had the best chance when he forced a great save out of De Gea. Gomez and Parejo also threatened while McTominay's early header has been Man Utd's only sight of goal. Back shortly!
  • 45'
    45+1: Danjuma runs forward, but his strike is wayward.
  • 45'
    One extra minute.
  • 43'
    Gomez!!! Plays continues after Fred catches Parejo and Gomez's shot is deflected wide for a corner.
  • 42'
    Parejo goes for goal, but the ball lands on the top of the net.

Yellow card

a Man. Utd
  • 41'
    Villarreal attack and win a free-kick just outside the area. Van de Beek is cautioned for the foul on Estupinan.
  • 38'
    There's a nasty clash between Danjuma and Lindelof as the Swede accidentally catches the Dutchman in the chest with his knee. They'll both be ok though.
  • 36'
    Fred is down with an injury just outside his own area. He does it himself when he plants his foot in the turf.
  • 35'
    Ronaldo and Martial combine, but the pass to Van de Beek doesn't find the Dutchman.
  • 34'
    The free-kick by Ronaldo goes straight into the wall.

Yellow card

a Villarreal
  • 33'
    Pino is cautioned for a clear pull back on Telles just outside the box. He will miss the potentially huge game with Atalanta in Italy.
  • 32'
    Capoue dispossesses a defender and Danjuma can't control the ball in the box.
  • 30'
    Ronaldo gets his head to the ball, but it's easy for Rulli.
  • 29'
    Sancho's ball into the box is headed behind by Albiol for a corner.
  • 27'
    Trigueros!!! What a save by De Gea!!! Rulli sends a long ball forward sees Pino beat Telles with ease, he passes back to Trigueros whose effort is stopped by the Spanish GK!
  • 26'
    The game has definitely dropped off after the first 10 minutes and I think it will be goalless at the interval.
  • 23'
    Man U are starting to have a bit of ball, but a draw is very fair.
  • 22'
    Ronaldo is furious with the referee after not getting a free-kick and he's perhaps lucky not to see yellow.
  • 20'
    Villarreal threaten, but the cross is poor.
  • 20'
    Estupinan wins the corner off Wan-Bissaka.
  • 18'
    Ronaldo runs through the middle and looks to find Sancho, but they aren't on the same wavelength.
  • 15'
    Man Utd have done nothing going forward after the first few minutes.
  • 12'
    Pau Torres heads, but he can't find the target.
  • 12'
    And another corner.
  • 11'
    Appeals for handball off Wan-Bissaka, but the ref says corner. His arm was by his side and the ref and VAR rightly say no.
  • 10'
    Pino!!!! Danjuma's pass deflects off McTominay, Pino gets the ball at the far stick and he can only find the sidenetting.
  • 7'
    Villarreal are having some possession here now.
  • 5'
    Gomez!!! He shoots from 25 yards and De Gea makes a fine save to his left.
  • 5'
    Free-kick to the visitors at midfield.
  • 3'
    Chance for Man Utd!! Telles' cross to the far post is flicked on by Albiol and McTominay heads into the sidenetting at the back stick!
  • 2'
    Martial runs forward and is fouled 25 yards from goal by Pino.
  • 1'
    United attack and they want a foul just outside the box, but the referee says no.

    The ref has come back and we seem ready now.
  • PRVW
    The players are still on the pitch passing the ball amongst themselves while there's still no sign of the ref... The assistants are still on the pitch. I'm not sure if there's also a communication issue with the VAR in Switzerland.
  • PRVW
    The ref has gone down the tunnel here!!! Very strange scenes...
  • PRVW
    Brych is getting his communication kit changed.
  • PRVW
    The start is delayed due to communication issues among the refs.
  • PRVW
    Maguire and Albiol come together for the coin toss.
  • PRVW
    The players make their way out here!

    It's 13 degrees and dry for this one.
  • PRVW
    Villarreal got a 1-1 draw at Celta Vigo on Saturday and they make five changes. Pedraza, Moreno, Iborra, Pena and Dia drop out and Estupinan, Capoue, the dangerous Danjuma, Pino and Moi Gomez come in.
  • PRVW
    Dalot was heavily criticised for being brought on for Shaw when he's a right-back when Telles is a natural left-back and Dalot made a howler at the back in his 10 minutes on the pitch. Bruno Fernandes has not looked 100% to me and I can see why he isn't starting.
  • PRVW
    Carrick makes three changes from the 4-1 loss to Watford. Telles starts in defence instead of Shaw, who got concussed at the weekend, while Fred and Van de Beek replace Matic and Bruno Fernandes.
  • PRVW
    Felix Brych of Germany is the referee while his compatriot Marco Fritz is the VAR.
  • PRVW
    Man U are through with any win while Villarreal need a two goal win as a one goal victory when see Man U and Villarreal split on GD (Man U won 2-1 at Old Trafford). However, Villarreal's GD would be superior by five goals so that should be enough. If this ends in a draw, it keeps things very interesting going into the last day.
  • PRVW
    Both these teams lead group F with seven points while Atalanta have 5 and Young Boys 3.

    Man Utd XI: De Gea (GK); Telles, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; Martial, Fred, Van de Beek, McTominay, Sancho; Ronaldo.

    Michael Carrick will be in charge of Man U following Solskjaer's sacking. How will he get on in his first game in charge?
