The two sides of Cristiano Ronaldo against Villarreal

With Manchester United

preparing to take on Villarreal on Wednesday night at Old Trafford in the Champions League, it remains to be seen which Cristiano Ronaldo will show up against the Yellow Submarine.

The Portuguese star has gone up against Villarreal on multiple occasions throughout his career, particularly during his time with Real Madrid.

Yet while he has been prolific against the Spaniards with Los Blancos, he has yet to find the net against them when wearing the red of Manchester United.

In four meetings against Villarreal for the Red Devils, Ronaldo has fired blanks in each of them, while in nine seasons with Real Madrid, he has netted a whopping 13 times.

Manchester United vs Villarreal: A classic fixture

The two sides have faced each other on plenty of occasions over the years, which have thrown up some classic duels.


Manchester and Villarreal met in the 2005/06 and 2008/09 group stages, four matches in which the likes of Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Carlos Tevez could not beat goalkeepers like Sebastian Viera, Mariano Barbosa and Diego Lopez.

Thirteen seasons later, Ronaldo has the chance to put that right.
