The winners of this season's UEFA Europa League will be decided under the lights at Gdańsk's Stadion Miejski tonight as Villarreal take on Manchester United. Don't miss a moment with our Villarreal vs Man United live stream guide.

Manchester United essentially stamped their ticket to Gdańsk after thumping Roma in their semi-final first leg clash. After going 2-1 down at halftime in the home leg, United turned on the style in the second half, bagging five goals to all but secure their place in the final.

In the return leg in the Italian capital, 2017 winners United were beaten 3-2 but the result was not enough for the Giallorossi to turn things around.

It wasn't quite such plain sailing for Villarreal who defeated Arsenal over two legs to reach their first-ever Europa League final. Two early goals in their 2-1 home win were enough to book their place in the final after holding the Gunners to a goalless draw in London a week later.

Villarreal missed out on qualifying for either the UEFA Champions League or Europa League through league position after ending the La Liga season in seventh place. That's enough for them to gain entry into the inaugural UEFA Conference League next season, though a win in the Europa League final would catapult the Yellow Submarine back into the premier European competition.

Man United ended the season in second place behind local rivals Man City. Having already gained entry to next season's Champions League, today is all about silverware for the Red Devils.
