Europa League

PHOTOS Of How Villarreal Lifted The Europa League Trophy After Man United Defeat.

Spanish side Villarreal got the nod over Manchester United in the Europa League final after extra time.

Villarreal started the game on a good note with Gerard Moreno putting them in front in the 29 minutes, finishing off an assist from Daniel Parejo.

Manchester United increased the pressure immediately after the goal but failed to find the back of the net before the halftime whistle.

Striker Edinson Cavani grabbed the equalizer for Manchester United a few minutes into the second half with a simple tap-in after Scott MacTominay had played him through.

Both teams failed to create clear-cut chances from the 60th minute through to extra time before the penalty shootouts.

All the ten outfield players of both clubs converted their kicks beautifully before David De Gea missed it for Manchester United for Villarreal to be crowned champions. 

For Unai Emery who guided Villarreal, it is the fourth time winning this trophy as a manager and has become the only manager to do so.
