Ariel Ibagaza insists Villarreal can beat Manchester United in their Champions League opener at Old Trafford.
The former Mallorca captain, who moved to Villarreal in the summer, made his debut in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna and is confident that his side can get a similar result at Old Trafford.
Ibagaza says Villarreal, who finished second in La Liga last season, will go into the match with the European Cup holders with an attacking strategy.
"We go into this match with the intention to win it," Ibagaza told the club's official website.
"We know that it will be a very difficult game against an opponent who play very well, who are going to make things very difficult for us.
Idea"But we are going there with the idea that we are going to get some points, that it is possible to win, and to get to the knockout stages.
"Beyond the good players that our opponents have, which are many, what's good is that we continue on our form and take advantage of our chances, which we will have."
Villarreal faced United in the group stages in the 2005-06 tournament, the one and only time they have been in the competition.
Both games ended goaless but the Yellow Submarine enjoyed a stunning campaign, beating Rangers and Inter Milan on their way to the semi-finals, where they lost to Arsenal.
